Ever since the very first issue of the Farmers’ Almanac hit the presses back in 1818, the annual Best Days calendar has been one of the most popular features. But what is a “Best Day,” anyway?
Throughout human history, many people have believed that it’s best to conduct tasks when the Moon is in the most favorable position. The Farmers’ Almanac’s Best Days calendar is based on many formulas that take the Moon’s place in the zodiac, as well as its phase, into consideration. Though the results are not guaranteed, many people swear they get better results when using the Moon as a guide.
This year, we’ve expanded the scope of our Best Days calendar to include more activities that will resonate for modern-day readers. Want to know the best day to ask for a loan? Entertain? Travel for pleasure? We’ve added these categories, and more, to our classic list of traditional household chores. (Get a copy of the 2010 Farmers’ Almanac today.)
We’re also revamping the online version of our Best Days calendar. Starting next week, you’ll be able to view a revolving calendar that will show 60 full days of Best Days recommendations. Become a member of FarmersAlmanac.com, and we’ll double it! Members will be able to see up to 120 days of our Best Days calendar (If you are a member already, these additional dates will be automatically updated when you log in).
