Why does the page for May 29 say that it is the 152nd day of the year? And similarly May 30 and May 31 are three days too high. May 28 and earlier days are accurately reckoned. So are June 1 and later days.

Council of Contance[edit]

I read an article about the Council of Contance, and it mentioned that it lasted from the autumn of 1414 till April 1418. So why is it on this page? The Wikipedia article about the council does not say anything about dates (only years). If no one objects, I will remove this entry, as it seems to be wrong. --zeno 22:00, 6 Aug 2003 (UTC)


It came to my attention that the date the Fall of Constantinople happened, was May 29 according to Julian and not Gregorian calendar. It was a Tuesday. Should the date change to June 7 or note the different calendar? --geraki 20:26, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)

May 29 USA federal holiday Memorial Day[edit]

May 29 USA federal holiday Memorial Day —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 21:25, 2006 May 11.

Added, with mention that it's the last Monday of May. Thank you. This is useful reference material that people keep removing. -- PFHLai 23:18, 11 May 2006 (UTC)
Unfortunately, "May 29" is not memorial day, "last monday in May" is. Movable holidays shouldn't be listed in a non-year specific day article, it's more appropiate at May_2006#29_May_2006. (If movable holidays were to be added, they;d have to be added to every day from May 25-31, as they all could be the last monday on different years) Regards, MartinRe 10:35, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

Liturgical feasts[edit]

Saint Maximinus of Trier is the only one on May 29th in my Saint Book, oh and Liturgical feasts are not saint days, they are assensions and ordinary time, sundays of easter and so on....from the Liturgy (is the word). Check your Missel. User:Gzlfb

At this moment we decided to use the term "feast day" for the calendar of saints and will not put secular "saint's feast days" under this group (we put e.g. christmas, st. lucia, st. fermin, etc. in its own group/day) In the future, we may change this "christian feast day" title into a more appropriate word, but for now for the purpose of creating a consistent guideline for the holidays and observations section, all calendar of saints will be listed under the term feast day.
We collected the information from many versions of "saint books": Roman Catholic, General Roman calendar, Eastern Orthodox, Syrian Orthodox, Coptic Church, Anglican Church, Lutheranism, Julian calendar versions, etc. So you probably wanted to add those to your saint book collection :) --Rochelimit (talk) 21:39, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

100th anniversary of death of W. S. Gilbert[edit]

29 May 2011 will be the 100th anniversary of the death of W. S. Gilbert, who wrote the lyrics and dialogue to the Gilbert and Sullivan operas and over 60 other theatrical works, as well as much humorous poetry (including the Bab Ballads), stories and illustrations. He died of a heart attack while saving a young woman from drowning in the lake on his property. -- Ssilvers (talk) 15:24, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
