Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
All the rest have thirty-one
Excepting February alone:
Which hath but twenty-eight, is fine,
Till leap year gives it twenty-nine.

HINDU 1921 The Hindu calendar which was mentioned in the Rig-Veda was originally a lunar calendar. It was revised in A.D. 79 - Year One is known as 1 Saka. It has been updated in 1957 operating on the Gregorian leap-year system. Religious holidays are calculated according to the positions of the sun and moon.
MAYAN 5119 The Mayan's use three calendars. The 5,130 year Great Cycle ends on the Gregorian year 2012. The Maya based their original calendar on the true seasonal year with 365 days. They also have a 260 day calendar for astrological predictions. The third calendar is based on the moon's phases.
MUSLIM 1420 Muhammad's trek to Hegira marks the beginning of this calendar which was akin to 622 A.D. This is a lunar calendar of alternating months of 29 and 30 days. The Muslim year has 354 days.
