It's a slow news day around the office, and someone mentioned that there are 52 weeks in a year, and also 52 cards in a deck of cards.

13 cards in each suit ((Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs, Spades)), and also 13 weeks in a season ((Spring Summer, Fall, Winter)).
It made me wonder, is there any card game that deliberately uses this fact?
MAHJONGG tiles have 13 of each kind and somehow use the seasons, but not as an important factor in gameplay.
Are there any games that use seven decks of cards ((one deck for Sunday, one for Monday, one for Tuesday ... ....)) in such a way that the cards, plus four Jokers, to somehow represent every day of the year?
