Nine-Eleven Celebration?

The big question here is concerning what events qualify to be part of a church calendar?

I'm still waiting for an answer to one of ERH's most opaque statements (to me) namely that before Luther the death days of 'saints' were celebrated, and after Luther the move was toward birth or inception (not the movie) days, or something such as that.

To partially answer my own questions, the present church calendars (including the Eastern, and varieties in the West) is a big Life of Christ and Our Response, so all such celebrated 'days' should fit into a maturational if not 'lining out' pattern, somehow.

In my view at this time, there is much thinking and praying to be done on this whole thing, calendars.

Are we 'Hearkening, we Israel? What are we strongly remembering in the first part of the year, Advent through Pentecost, maybe Trinity, and I propose, PV, such that we fill in responses in the 2nd half. At the present, it seems un-patterned, though I am not a scholar.

Love in King Jesus,

PS: To repeat, what types of events qualify to be strongly remembered in the pattern of psalmodically responding. Does God say, Ascend with me, for Ascension Day, and we respond with days of types of ascension. as 1. walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, is amend by 2. standeth not in the way of sinners, and 3. sitteth not in the seat of the scornful.
PPS: Frank D'Ag said once the kalends was when the tithe was brought in in the Middle Ages. This would fit.
