  Gregorian calendar
Although close to the mean tropical year of 365.24219 days, it is even closer to the vernal equinox year of 365.2424 days; this fact made the choice of approximation particularly appropriate as the purpose of creating the calendar was to ensure that the vernal equinox would be near a specific date (21 March).
A few years later, when the son of the Earl of Macclesfield (who had been influential in passing the calendar law) ran for a seat in Parliament in Oxfordshire as a Whig in 1754, dissatisfaction with the calendar reforms was one of a number of issues raised by his Tory opponents.
Sweden started to make the change from the OS calendar and towards the NS calendar in 1700, but it was decided to make the (then 11 day) adjustment gradually, by excluding the leap days (29 February) from each of 11 successive leap years, 1700 to 1740.

 Gregorian Calendar : QuicklyFind Info
A modification of the Julian calendar, it was first proposed by Neapolitan doctor Aloysius Lilius, and adopted by Pope Gregory XIII on February 24, 1582 (the document was dated 1581 on account of the pope starting the year in March).
The Gregorian calendar was invented because the mean year in the Julian Calendar was a little too long, causing the Vernal equinox to slowly drift earlier in the calendar year.
A later addition to the Gregorian calendar also fixed the first day of the year as January 1, which was already the first day used in Italy, Germany, and other places, but not universally (England, for example, began the year on March 25).

 Gregorian calendar Summary
The leap years are all years divisible by 4, with the exception that those divisible by 100, but not by 400, are common years.
The 19 year cycle used for the lunar calendar was also to be corrected by one day every 300 or 400 years (8 times in 2500 years) along with corrections for the years (1700, 1800, 1900, 2100 et cetera) that are no longer leap years.

However, the church didn't like the wild parties that took place at the start of the new year, and in C.E. 567 the council of Tours declared that having the year start on 1 January was an ancient mistake that should be abolished.
The Byzantine Empire used a year starting on 1 Sep, but they didn't count years since the birth of Christ, instead they counted years since the creation of the world which they dated to 1 September 5509 B.C.E. Since about 1600 most countries have used 1 January as the first day of the year.
So, in a country using a year starting on 1 March, 1439 would have been a leap year, because their February 1439 would correspond to February 1440 in the January-based reckoning.

 Calendar - Commentary
The collect provision for Sundays and greater Holy Days had been substantially agreed in an Inter-Provincial Liturgical Group, in which representatives of the English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh Commissions worked together in the hope of having a common set of collects, and a common translation of them, for the British and Irish Anglican churches.
Now that the Sunday next before Advent so firmly celebrates the kingship of Christ, the 'Stir up' collect has been given as the post communion; it is also suggested as the collect at Morning and Evening Prayer throughout the ensuing week.
The Collects for the Sundays of Easter which are addressed to the Son have a common ending: 'to the glory of God the Father' (in the case of the Second Sunday of Easter, 'to the praise of God the Father').

 George Washington: Gregorian Calendar
The Gregorian Calendar, a minor modification of the Julian calendar, was first proposed by Neapolitan doctor Aloysius Lilius, and adopted by Pope Gregory XIII on February 24, 1582 (the document was dated 1581 on account of the pope starting the year in March).
The mean year in the Julian Calendar had exactly 365.25 days, but the mean tropical year duration is approximately 365.2422.
On any timescale over 3000 years it is expected that changes in the Earth's orbit and unpredictable rotation make it improbable that long term accuracy can be gained by rule changes requiring any further regular skipping of Julian leap days.

 Dominical letter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Romans were accustomed to divide the year into nundinæ, periods of eight days; and in their marble fasti, or calendars, of which numerous specimens remain, they used the first eight letters of the alphabet to mark the days of which each period was composed.
The days of the year from 1 January to 31 December are marked with a continuous recurring cycle of seven letters: A, B, C, D, E, F, G. A is always set against 1 January, B against 2 January, C against 3 January, and so on.
The first of January, 1908, was a Wednesday, the first Sunday fell on 5 January, and E was the Dominical Letter for January and February, but as 1908 was a leap year, its Sundays after February came a day sooner than in a normal year and were Ds.

 A New Era of Nuclear Weapons as Bush's Buildup Begins with Little Debate in Congress
While Congress approved large sums to maintain the existing nuclear arsenal even during the Clinton years, this year's increases will finance multiyear programs to design a new generation of warheads as well as more sophisticated missiles, bombers and re-entry vehicles to deliver them.
The NNSA has estimated it would cost as much as $83 million over three years to increase the level of readiness, and an additional $25 million to $30 million a year to sustain that level.
More than $135 million was appropriated for a program to keep tritium, a radioactive gas used to boost the power of warheads, ready for weapons use and another $265 million for a broad campaign to refurbish the facilities used to produce and maintain the nuclear arsenal.
