Calendars & Planners

French Republican Calendar

The 2016 FRC features all of my favorite photos from the past eight years, which is how long I’ve been publishing the calendar. The illustration is of the 2013 calendar because I don’t have the 2016 calendar back from the printers yet but it will be a similar format, a wall calendar, 8-1/2 by 11.


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 eight 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 2016 is divided into the Gregorian calendar months (of January, etc.) and mentions the plant, tool or animal of the day. The full page photographs illustrate each of the French months and are my favorites from among the many beautiful photos taken by five featured photographers in years past.

The print-version of the calendar costs $20 which includes shipping. This would make a great present for friends who love the seasons and the natural world. I’m expecting to ship the calendars the second week of January but am happy to send the January pages as a PDF to all who order before December 31.
