Happy New Year ?


But consider this... prior to 1752 the English celebrated the New Year on 25 March.  March 24, 1751 was followed by March 25, 1752...with the adoption of the Gregorian calendar, things changed...

January 1st 1753 came only nine months later, and there never was a January or February in 1752. Not only that, but September 1, 1752 was followed not by the second but by September 14, 1752.

What Day is it Anyway?
