This was similar to the Gregorian calendar in that it consisted of months, and within months, of days numbered consecutively.

However, unlike the Gregorian calendar, the haab cycle is made up of eighteen months of twenty days each, plus five days at the end of the year. The haab cycle thus consisted of 18×20 5 = 365 days, the integral number of days closest to the mean solar year of 365.2422 mean solar days.

The Mayan Calendar speaks of human consciousness and earth evolution, within a pattern of energy shifts within cycles of nature.
