Yes ! I will now be able to ornate my email replies with dates from the One True Calendar. Not forgetting the awesome feast names (check the source of the module for their list). Thanks Eugene !

  • awesome feast names (check the source of the module for their list)

    Something tells me that they are all jokes of some sort, although the only one that I spotted that I could translate was "St Lazare, gare" ('cos I know that St Lazare is a station in Paris.). "St Tupetu de Tupetu, organisateur de loteries" is completely lost on me (and babelfish [altavista.com])

    • It's an allusion to a poem by Tristan Corbière. In the poem, the lottery is more or less the destiny, grotesque style.

      Lots of feasts are allusions to the works of Alfred Jarry -- although there are also some allusions to the surrealists, Louis-Ferdinand Celine, Gustave Flaubert, etc.
