Once In Every 823 Years

#1 Post by Pete44ru » Sat Dec 07, 2013 1:23 pm

Supposedly, this happens once every 823 years.

The calendar for August 2014

Zon My Din Woe Don Vrij Zat
..................01 02
03
04 05 06 07 08 09
10
11 12 13 14 15 16
17
18 19 20 21 22 23
24
25 26 27 28 29 30
31



August 2014, will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays.

This happens only once every 823 years.

The Chinese call it "silver pockets full", since it portends good luck & a wealthly time. (Based on Chinese Feng Shui.)

Same here. Birthday and anniversary right next to one another, so I don't get in trouble for forgetting the latter... :D

too bad payday is not Friday

I always look for the months with 5 Thursdays, since that gives me 3 checks; one for rent, one for bills, and one extra.

Ha. I'm an employer, so I HATE "three-payroll months", cuz you add up all those employee paychecks, and it means there is usually nothing left over; that's why two months a year my pay will be zero or just a couple hundred bucks for the month. It all equals out in the end, though, but you sure have to budget for it...!

That "once every 823 years" event happened in March this year..... along with the same sort of promises - :)

" March 2013 will feature 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays, a special calendar event that only occurs once every 823 years. The event is called "money bags" and those who share it with others will receive money within 4 days."

It will also happen in May, 2014... and again in Jan 2015... then followed quickly by May & Oct, 2015, with Jan 2016, Apr & Jul , 2016, but skips forward to Sep & Dec of 2017... So... that once 823 years is just... well, pure bunk. It happens in any month that the 1st falls on a Friday and has at least 30 days. Since August has 31 days, it happened this year with the 5 Fridays and Saturdays... and the 1st fell on a Thursday.

And if you think it's about the month of August; last time was the 1st fell on a Fri and the month had 5 Fridays & 5 Saturdays, it was in Aug, 2008, before that it was back in 1997... then back to 1986...
