Subject: RE: Folklore: Old Twelfth Night- the wassail Jan. 17
It is Twelfth Night on 17 January for those who don't accept the Gregorian calendar - OR IS IT?

If you don't accept the Gregorian calendar, you surely shouldn't accept the lack of a leapyear in 1800 and 1900, so, by now, Twelfth Night will have slipped to 19 January.
