The French Republican Calendar was a highly structured, if short-lived, calendar intended to make its users more aware of the natural world around them, and the agricultural processes and products of each season. The year was divided into 12 months of 30 days, with an extra block of 5 or 6 days to keep it aligned with the solar year. The days numbered 10, 20 and 30 in each month were associated with an agricultural tool, and the days 5, 15, and 25 were associated with an animal. The remainder of the days were associated with plants.
This template formats the information for a given day as a table row, tinting the background of every 5th and 10th day, showing the relevant day and month in the Gregorian calendar, and wikilinking the animals, plants and tools.
