I admire your staying power. . .



But the commercials say you might want to see a doctor.

All Saint's Day follows Halloweeen*

Maybe there should be a date of hate after Valentine's Day to even things up?



* yes I know technically Halloween precedes ASD....

I don't see anything wrong with that statement, technical or otherwise?

Perhaps Feb 15th can be Payback For The Disappointment Day.

Yes, but ASD is November 1st, and Halloween is October 31st, so ASD does follow Halloween?

It's a chicken-and-the-egg kind of question. Halloween is an eve like Christmas Eve--Christmas could in theory exist without a Christmas Eve, but a Christmas Eve with out a Christmas after it wouldn't be an eve after all. Chronologically you are right, it's one then the other, but ASD is sort of assumed to be more important and "exist" first, even if it happens second.

I understand Samhain is a couple thousand years old whereas the church didn't move ASD to Nov 1st until around 736AD, allegedly to stomp out Samhain by telling pagans they could be Christian and still party. The previous eve was when all the fun really was so that evolved into Halloween, although unlike when I was a youth, today most activity for children is before evening, and adults on the nearest weekend.

So ASD and Samhain are on Nov 1st, with Halloween on Oct 31st. Halloween evolved from Samhain which is older then ASD, and is the day before. Therefore Halloween comes first on the calendar and chronologically.

I know my computer will jump a hour ahead on it's own tonight, but I can't remember if my new clock does or not. I think it does but I'd have to dig the booklet out and read the tiny print(I know what file drawer it's in), or wait till morning and see... and drink some more tonight. I'll put it to a vote, all in favor of waiting till morning say hell yeah. Hell yeah. The hell yeahs have it. If it doesn't reset, I hope messing with it doesn't make me late for church. I have to leave time to find one on the internet first. Hmm... maybe I shouldn't drink more.

I have to turn my phone off and back on for the change to take effect. There's no provision for changing/resetting the time on my phone.

By the way, the Hell Yeahs were right, the clock fixed itself.
