We try to keep our information up to date but it must be said that organizations sometimes change the date of their holiday. Also many holidays are movable holidays which means the date changes from year to year. We do suggest you not take our research set in stone. We ask that you let our information be a guide to you as you continue to do your own calendar research. :) Thank You! • •
