He has a calendar that proclaims, and in Latin too: novuus felix annus --- and some such nonsense. For the Catholics, it's not just, as for us, Xmas; it's _merry_ Xmas. It's not just "new year": it's _happy_, i.e. full of happenings, of events, new year. It's not just Friday, it's _good_ Friday. It's not just Break, it's spring break. They have to qualify everything, Catholics. Theirselves, they call theirselves _Roman_ catholics, which they fancy fancier. Give me a break! J. L. Speranza Memphis.
