I don't know the answer to this yet, but i heard this one and need the answer. The question is: How come computer programmers can't tell the difference between Halloween and Christmas? I think the answer is because "Halloween" and "Christmas" takes 9 bytes to write out, but if someone has heard this one before, please enlighten me. Thanks

Hi Reggin Oy, welcome to FunTrivia.

I am moving your question over to 'I Need an Answer' where it might stand a better chance of being answered.
