Some calendar reform ideas, such as the Pax Calendar, Symmetry454 calendar and the Common-Civil-Calendar-and-Time Calendar, were created to solve this problem by having years of either 364 days (52 weeks) or 371 days (53 weeks), thus preserving the 7-day week.
These calendars add a leap week of seven days to the calendar every five or six years to keep the calendar roughly in step with the solar year.
The Symmetry454 calendar has alternating months of 28 and 35 days, and a leap week in December, when needed.

However, other calendar proposals that intercalate entire weeks do exist, such as the Symmetry454 calendar.
He advocates transition to the calendar on January 1st, 2006 as that is a year in which his calendar and the Gregorian calendar begin the year in sync.

My Symmetry454 has month lengths of 4-5-4 weeks, and the leap week has no name because it is simply appended to December in leap years.

If it has no decimals then it refers to 00:00h UT. If you make it have.5 as a decimal then it refers to 12:00h UT, etc., and as you change it you can see the effect on the solar longitude and lunar phase that is displayed in that window.
