And have cities bid to host it.

       This makes a lot of cents. While we might still remember JC we will only succumb to the pagan merchandising insanity of buying gifts we cannot afford with money we don’t have once every four years. [+]

       Wouldn't it be much easier to move it to February 29th?
Canuck, Jan 25 2016

       I think it would be the same easy. I'd prefer if the host city gets to pick the date.

       This is beyond cynical. [+]

       // cities bid to host it //   

       This will just encourage and promote a disgusting circus of bribery, lobbying, influence-peddling and blatant corruption on a par with the World Cup, Formula 1 and the Oympics, highlighting all the very worst aspects of human nature.

       Excellent idea, tatterdemalion. Unfortunately I have to vote against it though as it clashes with my own excellent plan for moving Christmas into January. Nothing personal, it's just politics!

       Would this idea not be better entitled "Make Christmas Quadrennial"?
MaxwellBuchanan, Dec 20 2019

       Not from the perspective of coordinating the title with the other "Move Christmas to…" ideas.

       Ah, fair point I suppose.
MaxwellBuchanan, Dec 21 2019

       "Move Christmas to be a quadrennial event" would satisfy both criteria.

       Just saw Sean Locke describe exactly this idea on 8/10 Cats/Countdown thing. How about that.
