The sun calendar of the aztecs "Xihuitl" (also called "Xiuhpohualli") represented the solar year and spanned 365 days. These 365 days were grouped into 18 months with 20 days each plus 5 "days of misfortune" - just like the Haab calendar of the Maya.
For these 5 "days of misfortune" (called "Nemotemi" by the aztecs) there was no number or sign and they didn't belong to any of the months. They were simply added after the 18 months. Since they were regarded bad luck every kind of work had to rest during these days. If a child was born on one of these days, it was already clear that it's life would be riddled with disaster. For that reason girls born on one of those days were called "nencihuatl" (good-for-nothing) and boys "nenoquich" (man without value).
The 18 months of the calendar not only were divided into 20 days but also into 4 weeks with 5 days each. The last day of each week was a celebration day where the "tianquiztli" (public market) took place. Thus the 365 day of the solar year consisted of 288 working days, 72 days of public market plus 5 days of misfortune.
Every 52 years the "Xihuitl" calendar met the ritual aztec calendar "Tonalpohualli" in one point with the same combination of days signs and numbers. This event was called the "Great Cycle", "Xiuhmolpilli" or "mexican or aztec century".
