Births: Oscar Peterson[edit]

Untitled[edit]

Oscar Peterson is listed twice: in 1922 and 1925. His own page suggests that the correct date of his birth was 15th August 1925. Therefore the 1922 entry should be deleted. 83.104.249.240 (talk) 21:12, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi, nameless, I see Oscar Peterson listed 15th August 1925, where exactly did you see Oscar Peterson listed 1922 ? something is wrong. you look for it , find it and see if you can delete it yourself. Did you know that the first Grammy Award Oscar Peterson won was in 1974, Best Jazz Performance by a Group, ironically, " The Trio - Oscar Peterson, Joe Pass, and NielsHenning Orsted Pedersen.

National Holiday India[edit]

As discussed on the WT:DAYS page, national holidays are allowable as hat notes. Wallie (talk) 11:00, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

From what I read there are three National Holidays in India viz Republic Day, Independence Day, and Mahatma Gandhi's Birthday, as compulsory holidays. The remaining holidays/ Milad-Un-Nabi or Id-E-Milad, Mahavir Jayanti, Idu'l Fitr, Dussehra (Vijaya Dashami), Guru Nanak's Birthday, Christmas Day.

No, national holidays or events where the the dates are alternate names require hat notes. Elevating specific holidays as more important than others--the same peculiar obsession you had regarding historic events--is a complete non-starter. For example, there is NO holiday CALLED '26th of January': It's Australia Day, and it's already in the appropriate section. --CalendarWatcher (talk) 12:05, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
This is exactly the same as the following: "For the Canadian holiday on July 1st, see Canada Day". Wallie (talk) 12:39, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
And in Canada they DO refer to "the First of July", as the simplest Google search would show. Any time you'd like to discuss the actual rationale behind your actual edits--as well as provide actual evidence--rather than drag in other pages, do go right ahead. --CalendarWatcher (talk) 14:46, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
I just gave my rationale. To cite WP:OTHERCRAPEXISTS in this case when we are discussing India's national day, shows your true intentions. Anyway they do refer to the 15th of August. Wallie (talk) 15:16, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

== National Homeless Animals Day == What is wrong with adding that??? If things go my way, there'll be hundreds of people adding this.
