What about: ʻO ka Pōʻahia ka lānui?

Pōʻahia and Lā ʻehia. I saw someone post that pōʻahia is for the day of the week versus ʻlā ʻehia is a date. That doesn't seem to hold to this translation?

I wonder how often this has been "Report"ed? I just added one.

Aia ma ka lā ʻehia ka lā nui? Any guesses as to why this isn't accepted yet?

Why is Pōʻahia not accepted?

Wouldn’t it be right “Aia ka lānui ma ka lā ‘ehia?, or Aia ka lānui ma ka Pō’ahia?”

This is an example of day and date not corresponding to pōʻahia and lā ʻehia?
