Restore Holy Days to the dates they should be!!!

In the UK, the dates of three holy days were changed. Epiphany, Corpus Christi and the Ascension were moved, to be celebrated on the nearest Sunday. I never liked the idea, and there is now an online petition to see if we can get the change reversed. If you would like to add your name to the petition, you can do so here.

Well at first, I believed that you were talking about restoring Easter to the original dates (or as you say: 'the dates they should be') but it appears you are not.

Why does it bother you that these three days have been moved? It's no big deal in the grand scheme of things considering you've got no problem celebrating Easter according to the 'new calendar'.

So either campaign for everything to be put back as it should or just go with the flow. You shouldn't be picking and choosing now should you?

Or maybe the Pope should just say "oh those dates are correct in the UK" and that will also make you happy?
