I was using the term "saturn's day" figuratively.

The Roman Suturnus was about a week long actually. It featured
pageantry, play festivals, present-giving and feasts.

Then we got smart and realized
it took the sun 365 days to circle the earth. To explain this
priests made the 359'th day the birthday of the Sun God. Through the
of his birth we got an extra five days.

I have never heard this.

What culture are you speaking of? What years? Who are "we"? And I still
don't get the connection to Lucifer.

Do you have a source?

I have heard of the changing of calendars in the Roman/Christian
tradition-- that is why there are two christmases, two easters etc.
between the Orthodox and Catholic churches. Does that relate?
