Calendar reform

With Yule right around the corner, I can't help but think that the current secular calendar is wrong. I've attempted to reconcile the calendar with astronomical markers.

Weeks are roughly 7 days and months are roughly 30. A new week, month, and year begin at the winter solstice. Each subsequent quarter begins at the equinox or solstice and serves as anchors for the secular calendar.
