Is there a website that will allow me to create a fictional calendar? I have already created the actual system, named the months, days of the week, and so on, but I would like to create an actual calendar so I can visualize it better. I would want to be able to include things like holidays, festivals, and celebrations along with character birthdates and other important story related events. I know there are plenty of websites that allow you to make your own calendar with our calendar system, but are there any that let you create a new system?

  • $\begingroup$ If you're using a similar 'grid' system, Microsoft Word, Excel and Publisher all have fully customizable forms in their products, names and date are up to you. <Hint> most cultures in our past use events and periods that are largely astronomical in nature. $\endgroup$ – Joe Aug 14 '20 at 20:41

    $\begingroup$ Two minutes' Googling returns the moderately robust Fantasy Calendar site, which seems to include everything you've asked for. $\endgroup$ – parasoup Aug 14 '20 at 21:12
  • $\begingroup$ There are many coders here, if you describe the calendar rules we may be able to make a script that renders your calendar. $\endgroup$ – The Square-Cube Law Aug 14 '20 at 22:50

Is this what you are looking for? Pretty basic, but it'll let you fiddle with stuff and make sure you did your math right.

Another possibility is Fantasy Calendar which allows you to play with a number of variables.
