I agree with your premises, but the conclusion I would reach from them is that he ought to do whatever he does on the day that makes the most sense to him, regardless whether it's an astronomically correct day or just an arbitrary calendar day. I don't believe that the dead are sitting around on the other side waiting for their living relatives on a particular day. Although I fully expect to get "you never call you never write" channelled messages from my mother.

Yes I was being becky. I fucking hate people telling me I'm remembering my dead on the wrong day. Which they do, every single fucking year.

oh, i entirely missed what your grimace was.
yeah, in that case, you should be remembering your dead Today. November 2nd.
that is, if they aren't saints, if they didn't make it into the cannon. if they're just in the masses in the underworld waiting for the Jesus.
but if they aren't in that group
you should remember them May 5th. though i don't understand Why.
i also don't understand Why Samhain incorporates this, but apparently it's about the seperation between this side and the other side being the thinnest. it's not about ghots and grandma. there could be some advantages when knowing you could punch through to the other side easier... if you're capturing dæmons or trying to be caught by one, say...
however, i know a few fellows who are ALWAYS falling through that curtain anyway. again, i think it all depends on the person.
but you're definately doing it wrong, whatever it is. then. arbitrarily. importantly. whatever.
dead? i always forget... they remind me when it's important.
