Subject: RE: Barbara Allen - Martinmas
The date of Martinmas has been the matter of some dispute. The Feast of St Martin has been given as "Old Hallowe'en" and as 7th November though most commonly it was celebrated on 11th November and has been subsumed for over a century because this has become Armistice Day.
