In May 1942, Nazi submarines sank two Mexican tankers, and Mexico declared war against the Axis powers. Thus forming the 201st Mexican Fighter Squadron equipped with the P-47D and sent to fight in the Pacific

Has to do with the calendar change. It was changed after the revolution to bring it in line with the West.

Peter the Great changed it for the same reason around 1700, give or take a few years. But not long afterward, the West changed calendars again. So they didn't agree untill after the Revolution.

Even more confusing: The great Swedish playwright August Strindberg was born in January. And guess when May West was born? In August! Man - you shouldn`t think too much about those things.

If you wait until the last minute to do something, it will only take a minute to do it!

The pre-revolution calendar is 13 days behind the current calendar. So the revolution took place on the 25th of october by the old calendar, 7th novemeber by new calendar.

Why are you confused?

The Germans sunk your freighters so you went off and killed some Japanese.

Makes sense to me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hahahaaa! That is his sig, silly. Not his post. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Anyway, the October revolution was in, well, October. The first chance for any celebration was in November, and, it just stayed that way. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

yup.12 day difference between Gregorian and Julian calendars. Former is correct, latter is wrong.

that's a good thing about Russia, you can celebrate Christmas and New Year twice, liver permitting.

It's true we celebrate X-mas on January 7th because the church refuses to adjust the calender. But we do celebrate New Year on January the 1st with the rest of the world http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Jan13th is so called "old new year" not really a holiday, just people would say: Oh, it an old new year today!
