Re: gcal reporting Christmas day as the 26th?

I was going to ramble on about how I've been installing/re-installing Ubuntu 
recently, and how Ubuntu screws setting my BIOS/RTC clock to UTC, rather than 
keeping/respecting it's local setting.

However, after scanning the gcal source code data/folder, Christmas is set 
corrently, and the data/us relevant holiday files appear not to have changed 
for a long time.

Also as of now, New Years is also showing as January 2, rather than January 1st 
as always in the past.

Due to these set of unusual circumstances, I'm thinking this might have to do 
something with all of the figiting with the BIOS RTC clock!

UTC is 5 hours ahead in my local time zone, I don't see how that would affect 
things, but might be plausible something is being affected by switching to/fro 
UTC/local BIOS/RTC clocks.

I would have certainly noticed this bug last year for sure!
