Edit: Since originally posting this it was brought to our attention by Steve's wife that this is just not true. I should of done my research and not trusted the person that sent it to me.

This is the only time you will see this phenomenon in your life.

Calendar August 2014

August will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens only once every 823 years.

Johnny, between the facts that you post and the ones that John posts I am always kept fascinated. Smile

Interesting. That makes me wonder if Subway sandwiches will have promotion for $5 foot longs, for 5 Saturdays and Sundays in that month?

The Truth is…
The first three weekdays of any 31-day month are repeated 5 times within that month. So, any month that has 31 days and begins on a Friday has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays. And this happens much more often than every 823 years.

My wife's to blame! I was trying to convince her that it was true until I was blue in the face. No go, she is hard to fool Tongue
