Why we spell Kalendar with a "K" In case you are wondering why we are spelling calendar with a "K", it is because this is the ecclesiastical version. The word calendar comes from the late Latin "kalendrium" which in turn comes from the Latin "kalends/calends", meaning the first day of the month in the ancient Roman calendar. The first of the month - the kalends - was the time that payments of interest were normally due and "kalendrium" was the name given to an account book used to record the details of such transactions. It is as a result of this connection that "kalendar/calendar" came to refer to the orderly arrangement of time as we now know it, but the established church retained the older "K" spelling to distinguish their kalendar from an ordinary list of events. In other words, a kalendar is simply a church calendar!
