The Longest Night (Amazed by the history)

The longest night in history was Sep. 2, 1752, when the Gregorian calendar was adopted in England. The Gregorian calendar wad adopted in England, arranged by Julius Caesar, by not making sufficient allowance for leap year, had caused the English date to become 11 days behind the right time. Those days were omitted after Sep. 2, so the next day was reckoned as Sep. 14, 1752.

What a “lost” !
