Christmas 2008 - Thursday

For Christmas 2008, the 25th December is on a ThursdayChristmas 2008 - Thursday

Unlike Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Thursday and Shrove Tuesday, Christmas Day can fall on any day of the week.

Naturally, Boxing Day follows Christmas Day; however, New Year's Day is always the same day of the week as Christmas Day, only one week later. 

The last time that Christmas Day was on a Thursday was 2003

  • Wednesday - OK.
  • Thursday - Middling time of the week, Boxing Day on a Friday is good.
  • Friday - End of the week, Boxing Day falls on a Saturday.
  • Saturday - Not my favourite day, does not seem quite right.

The End of Christmas?

Guy received a gift this week from a friend; it was wrapped in thick yellow paper with this printed statement repeated in a pattern all over the gift wrap:

Have a Satisfactory


                  Capitalist Wintertime

                           Gift-Giving Season


Christmas Cancelled - Official 4 Stages of Christmas

The Croatian government has banned Christmas 2008 parties in the public sector because of the global financial crisis.   They have also banned New Year festivities,  Will and Guy hope that this officialise is not contagious and that Great Britain being an island will remain immune form this type of government disease.

In Croatia state-run firms and organisations have also been told that they won't be allowed to dip into their funds to buy Christmas presents.  Prime Minister Ivo Sanader said there was no need for panic, but the country had to be serious. 'For that goal we forbid buying of Christmas and New Year's gifts as well as organising of Christmas and New Year's receptions,' said Mr Sanader.  The only silver lining was the Prime Minister's belief that these 2008 measures can avert a deeper crisis next year.

Christmas Celebration Banned - 1695Christmas Celebration Banned 1695

Let us go back in time; back to the year of our lord 1695, and to the place called Bay Colony in Massachusetts.  We arrive at the meeting house just in time to hear the General Council pass a law forbidding the celebration of Christmas.  To enforce their diktat the Council require a five-shilling fine from anyone caught, 'Observing any such day as Christmas or the like, either by forbearing of labour, feasting, or any other way.'

We have to remember that in 1695 these colonists were strict Puritans, thus they took the line that there was no Biblical reference to seasonal excess at Christmas.  Consequently, they kept to the pure religious observance of Christmas with no feasting.
