    But I think you're underestimating the usefulness of this phrase. It could mean the Day of Carp. Maybe it was an ancient festival of fish, or something.

    You never know.

  • Not sure whom you're addressing, h--entries can't be deleted as the site currently works. Wordies usually just tag them as misspellings (if that's what they are), or we refer them to Yarb's adoption agency. We even have an older adoption list for long-ago orphans.
