They just skip from the 3rd to the 5th? that would be a strange calender
Nope. My post above is accurate, and they don't skip any dates.
What they don't have is "a celebration of the 4th of July".
Pedantically speaking they DO have a 4th of July in England, as they do a 3rd of July and a 5th of July. So the correct answer is they DO.
"Celebration" is irrelevant. They do not have a Fourth of July. Period.
That's not what I said at all.
No, my answer above was irrefutably correct. I'm still waiting to see someone actually understand why.
enough, enough, Remember, remember, the 5th of November.
That's not what we are discussing, however.
By the same logic that they have a 3rd of July and a 5th of July, I'll stand by the correct answer that they DO have a 4th of July.
we should put some light on the subject/
on the 4th of July. There is indeed a day on the calendar after the 3rd of July called the 4th. It is not a holiday over there, and is not celebrated, but it is the 4th day of the month called July. Do we have a 5th of November over here?
The "no prize" to go along with your "no refund" from D*
You win the love and respect of the 3 nerds who felt July 4th deserved a page and a half of discussion here.
I did not receive an apology call.
I should have said that there is no Sunday December 16th this year.
But, you all knew what I meant, right?
Anyway, DirecTV has some 'splainin' to do.
That is indeed correct. I never said "4th of July."
You are correct. The term "Fourth" of July refers to only one thing: Independence Day in the United States. The capitalization of the word "Fourth" is what distinguishes this. England does not have such a day. They do, however, have a "fourth" of July, as does everyone else using the Gregorian calendar.
This is the reason why one cannot use this little brainteaser with the actual number and must use the 4th's written form.
Just got the robo call apologizing for the problem on the 22nd.
(My apologies for double posting in the other CS thread.)
So does that mean that we don't have a Fifth of July in the U.S.
And can I get a Fifth of Scotch, or only a fifth of scotch?
(And by your "technicality", we do not have a Fourth of July in the U.S., either. We have Independence Day.)
If you've had a really bad day, you might want a FIFTH OF SCOTCH.
in honor of semantics
