As we continue on our path to divorce ourselves from colonial timekeeping, take the time to really study the mechanisms of the Mesoamerican system. Observe the interplay between the 365 day solar year and the 260 named days, together producing a cycle of 52 years. Take in the patterns, from week to week, month to month and year to year. Use this calendar as a starting point to lay out the next year and the years after that. Only then can the true beauty of what our ancestors left us be revealed.

This calendar is part of an ongoing project by the Chimalli Institute of Mesoamerican Arts to introduce traditional Mesoamerican time keeping to the general public. Interested readers are encouraged to visit our website at mexikanewyear.com for a more in-depth look at the calendar system, the monthly ceremonies, and the methods used to arrive at our correlation. The central Mexican calendar is a living system for tracking the movement of the sun. We hope that by equipping individuals with the tools needed to not just use, but also actually understand this calendar, we help ensure its survival for generations to come.
