Is it true that February 2021 is once-in-a-lifetime event that happens once every 823 years?
Take a look at this viral claim, and find out what the FACTS really are!
Claim : February 2021 Happens Once Every 823 Years!
This is the viral claim that crops up almost every year, but gets a refresh every time.
February 2021 Happens Once Every 823 Years : Not True!
Here is the short summary – February 2021 is NOT a lifetime event that happens once every 823 years.
In fact, as far as Februarys go, February 2021 is nothing special, and here’s why…
Fact #1 : Most Februaries Have 28 Days
Every February has 28 days, except for leap years where they gain an extra day and have 29 days.
Years that are divisible by 4 are leap years, except for years that are divisible by 100 years.
- 1896 and 1904 are leap years, but not 1900.
There is one exception though – years that are divisible by 400 have a leap year.
- 1800 and 1900 are leap years, but not 2000.
Fact #2 : Roughly ¾ Of Februaries Have 4 Weeks
Roughly ¾ of Februaries have 28 days, and therefore 4 weeks with 4 Sundays, 4 Mondays, 4 Tuesdays, 4 Wednesdays, 4 Thursdays, 4 Fridays and yes, 4 Saturdays too.
In other words, February 2021 isn’t unique at all in having 4 of every day of the week… definitely NOT every 823 years.
In fact, it is far more common for Februaries to have 4 Sundays, 4 Mondays, 4 Tuesdays, 4 Wednesdays, 4 Thursdays, 4 Fridays and 4 Saturdays, than anything else!
