Calendars

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font
Calendars in widespread use today include the Gregorian Calendar, which is the de facto international standard, and is used almost everywhere in the world for civil purposes, including in the People's Republic of China and India. Due to the Gregorian calendar's obvious connotations of Western Christianity, non-Christians and even some Christians sometimes justify its use by replacing the traditional era notations "AD" and "BC" ("Anno Domini" and "Before Christ") with "CE" and "BCE" ("Common Era" and "Before Common Era"). The Hindu Calendars are some of the most ancient calendars of the world. Eastern Christians of eastern Europe and western Asia used for a long time the Julian Calendar, that of the old Orthodox church, in countries like Russia. For over 1500 years, Westerners used the Julian Calendar also.
 
While the Gregorian calendar is widely used in Israel's business and day-to-day affairs, the Hebrew Calendar, used by Jews worldwide for religious and cultural affairs, also influences civil matters in Israel and can be used there for business dealings.The Persian Calendar is used in Iran and Afghanistan. The Islamic Calendar is used by most non-Iranian Muslims worldwide. The Chinese, Hebrew, Hindu, and Julian calendars are widely used for religious and/or social purposes. The Ethiopian Calendar or Ethiopic calendar is the principal calendar used in Ethiopia and Eritrea. In Thailand, where the Thai Solar Calendar is used, the months and days have adopted the western standard, although the years are still based on the traditional Buddhist Calendar. Even where there is a commonly used calendar such as the Gregorian calendar, alternate calendars may also be used, such as a fiscal calendar or the astronomical year numbering system.
