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.
