π³Some interesting facts and observations about “Playing cards”::
π³

Did you know that the Traditional Deck of the Playing Cards are a veritable and most ingenious form of a Calendar?π³

There are 52 weeks in the year and so are 52 Playing Cards in a Deck.π³

There are 13 weeks in each Season and thus there are 13 cards in each suit. π³

There are 4 Seasons in a Year and 4 Suits in the Deck. π³

There are 12 Months in a Year so there are 12 Court Cards (Those with faces namely Jackdo Queens with The King in each suit) π³

The Red Cards represent the Day, while the Black Cards represent the Night.
π³

If you let
Jacks = 11, Queens = 12, and the Kings = 13, then add up all the sums of 1 + 2 + 3 + β¦to 13 = 91. Multiply this by 4, for the 4 Suits, therefore 91 x 4 = 364, Add 1 that is the Joker and you will arrive at the number 365 being the Days in a Year? π³

Is that a mere coincidence or a greater intelligence ?π³

Of interest is the sum of the letters in all the names of the cards; eg :

add up the letters in “one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, Jack, Queen, King” = 52 !π³

The Hearts indicates Love thy crops. π³
