DateTime::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary::Locale::en -- English localization for the French revolutionary calendar.
use DateTime::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary::Locale; my $english_locale = DateTime::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary::Locale->load('en'); my $english_month_name =$english_locale->month_name($date);
This module provides localization for DateTime::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary. Usually, its methods will be invoked only from DT::C::FR.
The month names come from Thomas Carlyle's book. Most of the feast names come from Alan Taylor's kokogiak.com web site, later checked with Wikipedia and with Jonathan Badger's French Revolutionary Calendar module written in Ruby. The day names are from this module's author.
This module provides the following class methods:

feast_short, with a "day" suffix, as in the current calendar's "groundhog day" or "Colombus day".
feast_long with capitalized first letters.
Gives a small text about the events which occurred the same month and day as
$date between the calendar's epoch (22 Sep 1792) and the day it was rescinded (31 Dec 1805).
Most of these events come from an anonymous propaganda book published in year VIII (1799--1800). The others are common knowledge available in any French History book or any encyclopedia.
