THE ROMAN YEAR OF 2013

21 January 2013, 12:11
Yes, that's right. Not the year 2013AD (Anno Domini, or as they say After Christ), or the year 2013ACE (of the Christian Era)! This is the Roman Year of 2013, a calendar which the Roman Catholic Church first adopted, was later widely used in the West and later emigrated to the rest of the world as a means of being a universal calendar. This doesn't alter the fact that every Religion has it's very own calendar with it's very own beginning of the the year, its very own feast-days and every religion is guided by this, their very own calendar. And let me make it quite clear: The Roman Calendar is not a Christian calendar, although they commonly use it for lack of discovering their own calendar.

However, it is good to see that peoples of different cultures and creeds can say "Happy New Year" to everybody else on January 1. At least, there is this one thing the different religions can share on a secular basis: This Roman Calendar. Allow me thus to go on and wish a splendid year upon everybody I know, all who read the crap I write, friends and foes, my Facebook Group, Facebook friends and Twitter followers, for this Roman year of 2013 (R2013). May The Divine, by whatever Name He (or She or It) is known to you, Bless and keep you safe and healthy and out of harm's way.
