THE MAYA CALENDAR

 

The ancient civilizations of Mesoamerica developed accurate written calendars and of

these, the calendar of the Maya is the most sophisticated. Its precision derives from the

fact that it is based on an uninterrupted, continuous count of days (called Kin in Mayan)

reckoned from an initial zero day. The Maya counted the Kin in several independent

calendrical counts that were synchronized. The two most important were the counts

of 260 and 365 days. The Maya calendrical counts are written using a combination

of numbers and glyphs.

 

 

THE 260 DAY CALENDAR -TZOLKIN

 

The 260 day Tzolkin calendar was the most used by the peoples of the Maya world. It was

used to regulate the timing of their agricultural activities, their religious ceremonies and

family affairs. The Tzolkin day corresponding to his/her birth date predestined the life of

the Maya.

 

It is composed of numbers 1 to 13 and 20 names for the days, which are represented by

individual glyphs. On day fourteen, the day number starts again with 1 and continues in

succession until 13 and so on. The day names are repeated on day 21 and so on. Both

cycles continue in this manner until day 260 in unique combinations of number and names

since 260 is the lowest common multiple of 13 and 20. After that the 260-day cycle repeats

itself.

 

 

THE 365 DAY CALENDAR - HAAB

This calendar is based on the yearly journey of the Earth around the Sun in 365 days. The

365-day year was divided into 18 named “months” or Winal of 20 days each. The overflow

of five days was named Wayeb. Each date is written using a number from 0 to 19 and a

Winal name represented by a glyph except for the days of the Wayeb which are numbered

from 0 to 4.
