Given your expertise in the problems editors and neg matchers have with
drop frames, mid-transfer re-syncs, zero-frame reference points, and
undocumented sync frames, you should be an expert on the identical
problems that arise with leap years, the Gregorian/Julian calendar
change, the year 1 /year 0 dilemma (when does the century/millenium
really start/end?) and the uncertain start of it all (JC probably wasn't
born in year 0 or year 1 AD, but year 4).
7 days between Dec 25 and Jan 1 seems the least of our worries.
But Dec 24th?????? Is this another French plot to be different? :-)
