Day of the week.

From a reputable source:-

In any given year the following days fall on the same day of the week: 4/4, 6/6, 8/8, 10/10, 12/12, 9/5, 5/9, 7/11, 11/7 and the last day of February.

Note that this holds true even for the strange American method of date notation.

For 2019 the common day will be a Thursday.

Re: Day of the week.

True - but I thought the last day of February bit was clever.

next year (2020) the last day of Feb is a Saturday which is the same as 4/4, 6/6, 8/8, 10/10, 12/12, 9/5, 5/9, 7/11, 11/7.

Even though next year is a leap year... Grin

The source was "The CRC Standard Mathematical Tables and Formulae (31st edition) 2003" - not one of your tabloid scandal sheets. Grin

That's a pity - I never could get the hang of Thursdays. Wink
