Yes , you are right. Can you find another logic? (its a bit out of box though).

They are both "holidays" :D

Oct 31 is a Monday, Dec 25 a Sunday. So both cannot be equal! Hence the given equation cannot be true.. ;-)) Sad but it is false..;)

first is 31/10 and 31=1 mod10

second is 25/12 and 25=1 mod12
