This year some funny things are happening with the calendar.

The month of July 2011 has five Fridays, five Saturdays and five Sundays. This only happens every 623 years. Similarly, the month of October has five Saturdays, five Sundays and five Mondays. That only happens every 823 years.

That’s not all; this year we’ll have had four extraordinary dates: 1.1.11 / 1.11.11 / 11.1.11 and 11.11.11.

Finally, if you add the last two digits of your birth year and your age, you get the figure 111. Try it. In my case, (19)50 + 61 = 111, it certainly works.

I wonder when the next interesting year will come along.

With thanks to Rita Köhler in Germany

Hi, Tony and thanks. The calculation has to be done after you have celebrated your birthday, otherwise it comes to 110.

Paul, thanks for all that fascinating stuff. Until now I hadn´t realised that 2011 was such a momentous year. I especially like those dates.

One thing. I just did a calculation. I was born in (19)43 and am 67 years old.
43 + 67 = 110.
Is the date of the calculation significant?
