He mix up the dates for Newton`s birth, they should be:
Old style(Julian)- January 4th 1643 because this calendar is 11 days fast
New Stlye(Gregorian)- December 25th 1642

The original roman calendar sounds like the Chinese calendar. With the magic of lunar calendars, you get to celebrate your birthday twice!

The 0.25 = 1/25 error is unacceptable for an "educational" video.

Also, why not explain all the months that are named after gods/feasts. They also ignored the Norse origin of four of the days.

In all this seemed poorly done for an educational video.

In Spanish, Domingo for Sunday means the Lord`s Day, "Domine" is latin for the Lord (and the root word of Dominion or Dominate) you know, like Anno Domine, the Year of the Lord 2012 AD

Also the names of the days in Spanish are connected with the space bodies:

Monday: Lunes (Based on Luna, Spanish for Moon)
Tuesday: Martes (Mars)
Wednesday; Miercoles (Mercury)
Thursday: Jueves (Jupiter)
Friday: Viernes (Venus)
Saturday: Sabado (Saturn)
Sunday; Domingo (?)

Also, the month of March is based on the Roman God "Mars", the God of War. March was also the beginning of the war season.
