Lady Day is an abridgement of the old term ‘Our Lady's day’ – a ‘gaudy day’ of the Catholic Church, and it represents the Christianisation of older, pagan Spring Equinox festivals, in the much the same way that St Patrick's Day and Easter do.
Lady Day was once considered to be the date of the Creation of the world as it was the date of the conception of Christ.
Lady Day correlates in time and theme, with the ancient Roman festival of Cybele, about which there is another Wilson's Almanac page here.

 Spiritualitea: Lady Day, the Vernal Equinox by Mike Nichols
The first, occurring on the fixed calendar day of March 25th in the old liturgical calendar, is called the Feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary (or B.V.M., as she was typically abbreviated in Catholic Missals).
This is the day that the angel Gabriel announced to Mary that she was 'in the family way'.
Lady Day may be especially appropriate for the celebration of this theme, whether by storytelling, reading, or dramatic re-enactment.

 The Two Babylons: Christmas and Lady-day
There is not a word in the Scriptures about the precise day of His birth, or the time of the year when He was born.
The feast, as regulated by Caligula, lasted five days; * loose reins were given to drunkenness and revelry, slaves had a temporary emancipation, ** and used all manner of freedoms with their masters.
If the mother was a tree, the son must have been recognised as the "Man the branch." And this entirely accounts for the putting of the Yule Log into the fire on Christmas-eve, and the appearance of the Christmas-tree the next morning.

 On "The Day Lady Died"
Nonetheless, Carroll is correct in insisting that "The Day Lady Died" is a crucial touchstone for postmodern poetry.
"The Day Lady Died" is a moving elegy not in spite of the poem's preoccupation with the poet's self but because of it; the death of the great singer at age forty-four occurs as an interruption, a shock that the reader is invited to share.
In 'The Day Lady Died' the cityplace is unobtrusively feminized when the poet goes on a shopping trip during his lunch hour: it is, as Andrew Ross says, 'an account of a lady's day, played out by a man through an imagined lunch hour that is the very opposite of the power lunches being eaten.

The cross-cultural passion for the Dec. 12 annual feast day stems from the indigenous connection to the story of the Virgen, and in the case of the Tohono O'odham, a devout Catholicism that has not faded over the many generations since Spanish Catholic missionaries converted the tribe in the 1600s.
