September 1752 :Actually was not a month!!

>> Tuesday, August 26, 2008


Have you ever seen the calendar of 1952? If you have noticed you will find that you will fine that
eleven days are wiped off the face of the calender of september 1752.If you go through http://www.timeanddate.com you can see the calendar of that year from where i have pasted this onto my blog . If you are a Linux user then you easily figure it out through following command.
At $ prompt ,type cal 9 1752.
You will get surprise when you see that 11 days have been swept away from the calender.


It is a month with whole of eleven days missing.This was the time when England shifted from Roman Julian calender to the Gregorian calender and the King of England ordered those eleven days to be wiped off the face of the month of September of 1752.What could't a king do in those days and the workers had to work for 11 days less ,but got paid for the entire month.That's how the "Paid Leave" are born.hail the king!!
