Leap years[change | change source]

  1. If the year number can be divided by four without rest, the year is a leap year (same as Julian calendar and Gregorian calendar).
  2. If the year can be divided by 100, it is not a leap year (same as Gregorian calendar).
  3. If dividing the year by 900 leaves a remainder of 200 or 600, the year is a leap year.

Until the year 2800, this calendar will be in sync with the Gregorian calendar; From 2800 to 2900, the Gregorian calendar will be 1 day off.
