RE: [spoon-discuss] Thoughts toward a universal Nomic calendar

So Suber has five birthdays per Gregorian year. I like it.

Independence Day - is that the anniversary of our founding or of
us declaring independence from all other nations by repealing their
laws? I guess we could combine them, since they wouldn't really correspond
to the anniversaries of those events in any sense anyway.

I would like more creative names for seasons. 'Tango' is the only
interesting one. I suggest we name one 'Dennis Ritchie', since we're
celebrating those who inspired us.
