Orthodox Calendar Date Tokens

Since the Gregorian and Orthodox calendars have the exact same structure apart from a current 13 day lag, all the tokens you regularly use can also be used for the Orthodox calendar, using the prefix "o".




Shows the Orthodox day (1-30 and 01-30) of the Orthodox month and correspond to [d] and [dd].



Shows the Orthodox month number (1-12 and 01-12) and correspond to [m] and [mm].




Shows the short form of the Orthodox month name and correspond to [mmm], [Mmm] and [MMM].




Shows the full Orthodox month name and correspond to [mmmm], [Mmmm] and [MMMM].



Shows the Orthodox year number and correspond to [yy] and [yyyy].


The prefix "s" can be used to conditionally show the Orthodox day or month tokens.


Weekdays are the same and occur on the day/month pair in both the Orthodox and Gregorian calendars. So the tokens [ddd], [dddd], [Dd], [sw] and in general any token related to the weekday, will give the same result for calculations using either the Gregorian or Orthodox calendar.

There is therefore no need to define translations for the tokens [oddd], [ommm], [odddd] and [ommmm] in the tokens manager, since they use the same translation as the Gregorian calendar.


Note that Orthodox dates tokens cover the dates of the Orthodox Calendar for the range of years 1930 until February 28, 2100, inclusively. The lower bound of 1930 corresponds to the date when the last country using the Orthodox calendar effected a conversion to recoup the lag accumulated over the centuries due to the counting of every year divisible by 4 as a leap year.
