Calendars & Planners
The French Republican Wall Calendar 2014
In 1793, the French replaced the old calendar, tainted with irrational religious holidays, with a new rational calendar. The months were named after natural phenomena (Winter consists of Foggy, Frosty and Snowy), and each day was dedicated to a plant, animal or tool. I’ve been using this calendar for four years, and I’m delighted by the way the plants in the calendar show up in my life. I’m pleased that a calendar created two centuries ago in France matches so well with the seasonal changes I experience in Seattle in the 21st century.
The wall calendar I’ve created for 2014 is divided into the Gregorian calendar months (of January, etc.) and shows the items to honor on each day. It is illustrated with stunning photographs of seasonal landscapes taken by Joanna Powell Colbert (that’s her photo of the rain and tree), Shaw Fitzgerald and Cate Kerr (of Beyond the Fields We Know) that correspond with the FRC themes and shows the items to honor on each day.
The print-version of the calendar costs $15 which includes shipping. This would make a great present for friends who love the seasons and the natural world. It’s also a great and unusual gift for your friends who love all things French.
