How would a 4 week month affect you?

Quite right, just think of all those people freaking out when it's the 13th day of the 13th month 2013.
In the global view 12 is just as unlucky as 13. In many countries you never give an even number of anything unless it is a sad event.
So you give a girl 13 roses unless it is for her funeral then it is 12.
The earth will still turn, the sun will rise and there will still be 365 days in a year. The calendar is a human creation therefore could be manipulated however we want. Caesar did it!
Only one month for Christmas! we already have adverts for Christmas parties in all the restaurants and hotels. Each year I see xmas decorations going up earlier, some leave them up all year.
We could always go back to 10 months a year, but that would make a lot of five week months, not sure if my wages would stretch that far that often.
But that would be an extra pay day each month, if you get paid weekly. And it would be great, you have the extra days to pay bills.
Personally, I would much prefer a 5 day week, 3 working 2 for the week end. (even better if it was the other way round)
‘Pain’ because no matter how much of a good idea it might be, it would cost a fortune and the tax payer would have to fund it.
Just curious. 365 divided by 13 equals 28.0769. per month. Are we going to have we extra 0.769 days per month? I know it is a ridiculous question, but having seen insurance effective dates, labor deadlines, etc, it is something to think about.
