Could not be confirmed at this date. Even if true, then who cares? Pompeii and Herculaneum were already destroyed by a previous eruption since August of that year. --mav 23:28, 31 Oct 2003 (UTC)

Manju Warriar is spelt as Manju Warrier on other web sites. --Surabhi

This page has been edited by people adding in random names. I'm not familiar with the program enough to delete them, but it looks like some kind of hack because it doesn't show up on the "edit this page."


I think the Lisbon earthquake needs to be here. Surely this event is as significant as the September 11 2001 WTC bombings. Wallie (talk) 12:54, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

If you can provide some sort of evidence that '1 November' or 'November 1' is a widely understood short-hand or is of global significance--as 11 September clearly is and 1 November clearly isn't--perhaps. But not until then. Remember, the burden of proof lies with those adding, not removing. --CalendarWatcher (talk) 13:02, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Who said anything about "Global significance"? September 11 is remembered in Chile too. This is mentioned in the intro of the September 11 article and rightly so. Many dates have "global significance", not just September 11. Wallie (talk) 13:09, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Please stop reverting what I have added. This issue needs to be discussed. Thank you. Wallie (talk) 14:13, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Please centralize these discussions at WT:DAYS. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 15:45, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Neopagan holidays in the Southern hemisphere[edit]

Neopagan holidays depend on the seasons which differ in the Northern and Southern hemispheres. They may have originated in the Northern hemisphere but they are also celebrated in the Southern hemisphere in accordance with the (different) southern seasons. Only including the Northern hemisphere holidays results in only these being shown on the Wiki main page, which is frustrating for Neopagans in the Southern hemisphere who are assumed to be celebrating on behalf of the Northern hemisphere and greeted accordingly. I have therefore added the Southern hemisphere holidays to this article and others for the various holiday dates. Rochelimit has removed them on the grounds that they are redundant which I disagree with. This has been discussed on both our talk pages and I understood that Rochelimit would revert those edits which is clearly not the case and am now seeking outside input to help resolve the matter. Thank you. HelenOnline (talk) 09:52, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Dear Helen. Please realize that I have not finished with the cleanup. Check October 31 and September 22 (Samhain and Mabon respectively), two finished revision as a result of our earlier discussion (inclusion of both Northern and Southern Hemisphere). You can help revising the observances yourself by following the formatting of Oct 31 and Sep 22, but please take into account the alphabetical order of the observances as a whole in the Holidays and observances section. You seem to forgot the alphabetical ordering in your earlier edit.--Rochelimit (talk) 18:13, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
Please can you explain why you removed the Beltaine event from the November 1 article today. HelenOnline (talk) 19:22, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
