Should the reference to Animal Farm really be 2003? I can't remember it being set in any particular year. Piha 01:00, 7 Oct 2003 (UTC)


Could not be confirmed at that date. --mav 04:55, 12 Oct 2003 (UTC)


According to the United States Navy page, the correct date is October 13. See October 13.

Heribert of Cologne (private feast day)[edit]

This has been discussed at the page Talk:Heribert_of_Cologne and the decision was made to remove the reference to a "private feast day" since there is no such thing. I suggest that Heribert of Cologne be removed from Oct. 12. --Richardson mcphillips (talk) 23:15, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Feast for Life of Aleister Crowley (Crowleymas)[edit]

I've seen this religious holiday (celebrated in Thelema, etc) deleted multiple times on the basis that it is already mentioned in birthdays, yet we have multiple instances of the "Discovery of the Americas" listed even though it is already covered in events and we list multiple, even outdated, Christian feast days constantly. What is a good reason to keep it out of the Holidays and observances section?

Births and deaths[edit]

Continuing the ongoing effort to reduce the size of the Births and Deaths sections to make them manageable, I've removed some celebrities with few or no articles in other wikipedias, moving the entries to the appropriate Year in Topic article if they were not already present. :See also Wikipedia_talk:Days_of_the_year#June_11_and_removal_of_entries_by_Deb for ongoing discussion, evidence of general consensus and proposals for improvement.
