Thread Name: Lyr Req: Eighth of January
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Eighth of January
Wasn't the 8th of Jan also refered to as the old Christmass? or New Year? and was celebrated as such in the Appalachans before the change to the current calendar? Anyone know about this?? Scots Irish in England who came to America after the 1715 rebelion could have celebrated christmass on the 8th of Jan    Any ideas???
