Halloween and Christmas are on the same day?

It’s an old joke and probably completely worn out, but I couldn’t resist writing about it. After all, I’m a Geek and programmer from way back, so it hits home.

Q. Why do programmers confuse Halloween with Christmas?

A. Because Oct. 31 and Dec. 25 are the same; therefore, Halloween = Christmas!

If you don’t get it, you’re not a true Geek. A true Geek could give a more sensible interpretation of the relationship OCT. 31 = DEC. 25 than “Halloween = Christmas!”

Can you also explain why 16 = 20 = 10? How about 86 = 126 = 56?

Fun stuff. Geek entertainment.

BTW, Googling is Verboten! Those who Google will receive a Schlag in den Arsch!
