Re: Q: What was the significance of the dates Sept 3 - 13, 1752, in the USA?

I used to give talks on critical thinking and stuff like that.

Foolishly thought it would help my career to be known as a speaker.

That was 35 years ago, I am long since retired.

But I used to tell my audiences that there were riots in many european streets when those dates were skipped.

Why?

Entire mobs of people had concluded that they had just been deprived of eleven days of their lives, and were not too happy about it.
