almost everything...

The major difference between the two calendars is the Julian calendar has 100 leap years in every 400 years, and the Gregorian calendar has 97 leap years in every 400 years. That makes the average length of a Julian calendar year 365.25 days and the average length of a Gregorian calendar year 365.2425 days. As a result, it takes only about 128 years for the Julian calendar to accumulate a full day of error, but for the Gregorian calendar to accumulate a full day of error takes about 3200 years.

What is the Julian and gregorian calendar?

The Gregorian calendar is the standard calendar of the "western" world. It was introduced in 1582 as a reform of the Julian calendar, which is almost identical but has 7.5 more leap year days per millennium than the Gregorian calendar, making it about 25 times less accurate.


What did the Julian calendar have?

The Julian calendar has the same month names, the same year numbering, and the same number of days per month as the Gregorian calendar. Aside from making New Year's Day the same around the world (1 January), the only difference between the calendars is that in any 400-year period the Gregorian calendar has three fewer days than the Julian calendar. In the 400-year period that began on 1 January 2001, the three days that are part of the Julian calendar but not part of the Gregorian calendar are 29 February 2100, 29 February 2200 and 29 February 2300. The Julian calendar accumulates one day of error every 128 years. The Gregorian calendar accumulates one day of error every 3200 years.

Which are the twele months in gregorian year?

The twelve months in the Gregorian year are January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, and December. They are exactly the same months as the months in the Julian Year. The difference between the Gregorian Calendar and the Julian Calendars have to do with the calculation of leap years. In The Gregorian Calendar, leap years do not occur in years ending in 00 unless the number preceding the 00 is divisible by 4. This keeps the calendar the same for sunrise and sunset at about the same throughout the year. The Julian Calendar makes no exception for the difference in the difference between the slight difference between the solar year and the calendar year. It is far easier for a computer to calculate dates for ancient astronomical phenomena using a Julian Calendar than using a Gregorian Calendar. It is of course then quite easy for a computer to translate the date to a Gregorian Date.
