Calendar changes

If you are to change the calendar, then why not 12 months of 30 days each and
have the leap and extra 5 or six days be a feast/special month or like. Some
religious time if you like? Also have ten day weeks, so you would have three
weeks in a month?

I wonder where our current calendar comes from, since many of our social things
are based on Ten (fingers and like). I know of the Romans had a ten month
calender, but over time additions were made.

January = same
February = not sure
March = not sure
April = not sure
May = not sure
June = Juno (Jupiter)
July = Julius
August = Augustus
September = 7th month
October = 8th Month
November = 9th month
December = 10th month

Any comments?
