Take Two

Swedish meatballs anyone?

According to The Maiden Stone, year 3042 is a standard year with 12 months and no additional days.

Which means that the New Lunar Year’s Eve does fall on Sunday, October 30, 2016, this year.

How cool is that?

If we go by the Lunisolar calendar, the proper date to celebrate would be on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30. (My preference - I am kind of a purist that way).

If we want to do it the Swedish way, however, then we could just call it Alla Helgons Dag, which observance takes place, in Sweden, on the Saturday between October 31 and November 6 and would, in this instance, place the party very precisely on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 05.

Alternatively, if for one reason or another, the dates above do not work for everyone and we don't have a consensus, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28 or SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29 are also possible alternatives.

And that about covers it.

Any takers?

Select all that apply:

A. Sunday, October 30

B. Saturday, November 05

C. Friday, October 28

D. Saturday, October 29

E. Get lost, you silly git, I’ve got better things to do with my valuable time than attend one of your air-brain parties, least of all one based on the Lunisolar calendar or some obscure Swedish tradition, out of all things!

UPDATE: Good news, everyone!

Based on your NeedToMeet.com selection, WE HAVE A DATE.

Thank you for your participation!
