The Annunciation of the Lord to our Lady is often called Lady Day and is a quarter day for the paying of rents. It has also been used as New Year in the past. It is a major holy day and has to be moved if it falls in Holy Week or Easter Week. It marks the beginning of the Incarnation, for it is when the Blessed Virgin conceived the Saviour by the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit. It is exactly 9 months before Christmas Day. Some have squabbled over whether it is principally a feast of Christ or of His holy Mother. Why worry? It intimately involves both!!!
