Yes, I know it is, but that would make it thirteen days. Count them. 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.

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!

Hi all,

Sorry, Carolyn, but "Boxing Day" is not on either December 25th or January 6th. Boxing Day is December 26th, or St. Stephen's Day. The below is copied from Wikipedia.




Boxing Day


Observed by
Commonwealth nations

Type
Bank holiday, public holiday

Date
26 December, 27 December

Frequency
Annual

Related to
St. Stephen's Day
Day of Goodwill
Second Day of Christmastide

Boxing Day is a holiday traditionally celebrated the weekday or Saturday following Christmas Day, when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts, known as a "Christmas box", from their masters, employers or customers,

HTH,

Re: Peapod site accessibility

Ann Parsons <akp@...>
 

Hi all,

It may also be that just plain old unfamiliarity with the site is the problem. Often, a site may be perfectly accessible, but either it's laid out in a somewhat illogical fashion that isn't intuitive at first encounter or it may be that it may take some extra fiddling to become familiar with just what's going on.

Gene, suggest you might want to try a different screen reader, see if that helps. I'm sure it's doable, it just may take some extra fiddling. That's a shame, though because I'm sure that you'd love a place where you could order online during your recovery. It would be so much more convenient. Good luck. They don't operate here in Rochester, or at least I don't think they do. I'll have to check.

If members don't know, I unexpectedly was hospitalized about a month ago and I hope I'm back permanently now. If people want to write me, with personal messages, please do so at
gsasner@ripco.com
to avoid cluttering the list.

Briefly, I had a mild stroke and it affected my balance. I was lucky. The stroke didn't affect my mind and I have no paralysis. I got some rehabilitation for my balance and it's better but it may limit my mobility. We'll see, it's too early to say anything definite about that.

I wouldn't ordinarily send a message about such matters to the list but since I'm a moderator, I thought people would be curious why I disappeared after being active from the inception of the list.

Re: Peapod site accessibility

I believe I found out why I was having problems using Peapod.  Evidently, some sort of error occurred on my system that was causing an old version of Firefox to open even when I attempted to open a recent version.  The old version had cookies blocked. the recent version of Firefox did not have cookies blocked and I was able to use the site. 
 
It appears that Peapod can be used with various browsers and screen-readers but experimentation may be necessary to find a combination.

I havent' tried peapod with the newest version of NVDA. It may be

Sorry. That's the 26th of December, and it's called Boxing Day. (If you visit Canada or the UK around that time, you'll need to know that.)

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

Let's not forget all the people who celebrate xmas by the Eastern Orthodox
Church calander, such as the Greeks and Ukranians; xmas is two weeks later
in their tradition. When xmas ends for most, it is just beginning for them.

Hi Rajmund,
 
I wasn't really implying anything about Christmas decorations but, a spelling error in the message.  Flor & I go back many years & I ton't often get a chance to give him grief over misstakes so, whenever I get the chance, I jump on it, in joking of course!  Flor, I know it's the New Year where you are so, we wish you the very Happiest of New Years!
Take care.
