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!
