gc1 -- how appropriate for a discardia month
I wrote about my compact date- and time-stamp format a few years ago (alternate (conventional) link is here). So today is gc1, and so I'm unduly tickled at the fact that "gc" marks one of the months that contains a discardia period.
Time to get out to that garage, attic, spare room, or shed, and start marking and sweeping so you don't end up leaving that dirty job to a later generation!
According to Dinah, discardia lasts " ... the time between the Solstices & Equinoxes and their following new moons. Sometimes it's short and sometimes it's long. Well, this month has a new moon on March 19th, and the equinox is no earlier than March 20th, so the discardia is an exceptionally long one — it should last until April 17th.
By the way, it's cool to see that arcaeoastronomy site listing the pre-Christian "cross-quarter" holidays, Samhain, Beltane, Imbolc and Lughnasa.
