    Phoebe can’t aim to save her life, can she?

    In her defense, she’s aiming paper.

    Better than horseshoes, I’m sure.

    (Insert Phoebe has bad aim joke) only a best friend would put up with you tossing hats at her head trying to land one perfectly. But Marigold does have a point..er a logical statement, New years is just a mark on the calender, different people put it different places. Also how many of you equestrian fans watch the Rose Bowl Parade? All those horses marching today made me think of some of the regulars here. Also I wish Marigold and Phoebe and Todd could be a float.

    All right for a nine-year-old, but deadly dangerous for adults: see http://www.cse.dmu.ac.uk/~mward/gkc/books/Poet_and_Lunatics.html#d

    Back wards facing cones are far from aerodynamic.

    While the point in time chosen to mark the begining and end of the year is arbitrary, the motion of the planets about the sun and the interaction of the magnetic field with the solar wind is the source of energy for the magic Marigold employs.

    Science and magic combined. Superb!

    A cone hat would be pretty hard to throw, or even drop accurately. It would catch air and tend to flip over.

    Agreed.

    For some reason that reminds me of a couple of dummies from Grants Pass that decided to play William Tell with a beer can in the early 1990s…

    Yeah, but having it January 1st gave me two 4-day weekends in a row this year!

    Your thinking is too short-sighted! January weather is perfect for snuggling with a special someone while counting down to the new year. Who wants to snuggle on a wet, sticky, miserable April night?

    No.

    First of all, the alternate New Year’s day was March 25th, not April 1. Second, it wasn’t uniform; for some purposes, it was March 25th, and for some purposes it was January 1st, so that some people were always unsure what year it was from January 1st through March 24th. That’s why careful historians will tell you that, according to the calendar in use at the time, George Washington was born February 11, 1731/32, to make it clear that he was born during the period that some people called the last part of 1731 and some people called the beginning of 1732. The new calendar came in about 20 years later, so now we say that he was born February 22, 1732. (Another change that was made somewhat earlier was that Leap Year Day was moved to February 29th; it was originally done by having February 24th twice. Calendars can be weird.)

    Anyway, April Fool was mentioned in books long before any calendar change, so it’s just an urban myth, anyway. It’s most likely to be about animals going crazy in mating season (“mad as a March hare”).
