Jane trivia time!

OK y'all who read Jane Austen books and never know when "Michaelmas" is?
It's today. As in Sept. 29th, the feast of St. Michael (and Raphael and Gabriel, but given that St. Michael is sort of the one who beat Satan in battle, the day gets named after him :).
So when Mrs. Bennett tells Mr. Bingley that she heard "he'd meant to give the place up entirely by Michaelmas," you now know what the heck she's talking about.
Don't worry. You'll thank me later. Now go watch Pride and Prejudice. :)
