	int minDaysInFirstWeek


Type: OnlineSystem Int32
The minimum number of days in the first week of the year. When computing the WeekOfWeekYear and WeekYear properties of a particular date, this is used to decide at what point the week year changes.

Return Value

Type: CalendarSystem
A suitable Gregorian calendar reference; the same reference may be returned by several calls as the object is immutable and thread-safe.

Although the Gregorian calendar did not exist before 1582 CE, this calendar system assumes it did, thus it is proleptic. This implementation also fixes the start of the year at January 1.
