Hello Carlos,
Just wondering, but was it really unmoderated?

True, but it is a tech list and too much off topic conversation irritates
some members.

LOL well I was trying to let everyone have a bit of unmoderated fun in the
spirit of the holidays, but I guess it probably is time to move on before
we
irritate other list members.

Except that this is New Year's Day 2016. So why are some list members
still discussing Christmas 2015? That's old news. Let's end this
thread already and move forward.

Hello,
For some, though, the Evening on the 24th is the official Christmas.

You have to start counting starting the 25th, since that is Christmas.
So if you count all the days, including the 25th and the 6th, it
comes out to thirteen days. Pam.

No, January 6th. (That's the feast of the Three Wise Men, or the
Three Kings, or the Epiphany, or Women's Christmas, or Little
Christmas; depending on where, who, and what, you are! Christmas,
despite commercializaation, at heart isn't a secular or non-Christian
festival. Sunday doesn't count as a normal day etc., etc. There are
English-speaking people from all over the World on this and other
similar lists. (People in many other countries ton't take down their
Christmas decorations until about the 7th of January.)

Of course, technology itself in no way observes such traditions. But
often the people behind it do.

That would still only be through January fifth. I just counted twice.

Hi all,

Yes, Christmas has twelve days, from December 25 to January 6. I
figure if Muslims can celebrate Ramadan for a month, and Jews can
celebrate both Chanukah and Passover for a week, then I'm entitled to
celebrate Christmas for twelve days. C'mon, folks, stand up for your
rights. Victor's correct, the liturgical calendar says Christmas
lasts twelve days, and that does not have anything to do with stores
that insist that Christmas starts on October first. Idiots!
