There are two opinions about the celebration of Janmashtami this year.

1. Krishna Janmashtami falls on August 9, 2012 (Thursday) according to some panchangams.
Others have a view that it falls on August 10, 2012 (Friday)

2. Krishna Jayanthi falls on September 8, 2012 (Saturday)

Would also like to know the difference between Krishna Janmashtami and Krishna Jayanthi.

Which is the correct date and on which date we should celebrate the occasion?
