So, I see according to my calendar that George Washington’s Birthday is on February 22nd. But I also seem to remember seeing two different dates given for his birthday, presumably because the American colonies chose to switch over to the Gregorian Calendar at some point from the earlier used Julian Calendar.
If I remember rightly, this resulted in a loss of 10 or so days? So I would guess that would mean the actual date the little George celebrated in his youth, would be a different date once calendars were switched. I guess I’m just curious to know if he continued to mark his later birthdays when the familiar date rolled around, or if he adapted and used the 22nd.
And I just picked George Washington, but this question could apply to anyone alive at the time the calendar switched.
Oh, and incidentally, what is today - February 21st, 2001 on the Julian Calendar. I’m kinda interested in knowing my own birthday according to the older calendar…
