few reforms have gained official ACCEPTANCE. The rather different decimal French Republican Calendar was one such official
reform, but was abolished twelve years later by Napoleon. After World War 11 the newly-formed United Nations continued efforts of
its predecessor, the League of Nations, to establish the proposed World Calendar but POSTPONED the issue after a veto from the US
government, which was mainly based upon concerns of religious groups about the proposed days that would be outside the seven
day week cycle ("blank days") and thus disrupt having a sabbath every seven days. Independently the World Council of Churches still
tries to find a common rule for the date of Easter,which might be eased by a new common calendar.
