Special October

This October is very special.
It has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays all in 1 month.
I'm told it hasn't happened for 823 years but I haven't checked - I'll leave that to someone else Wink

I fear that whoever told you that must be a tad misinformed… it, clearly if you think about it, happens whenever the 31st of a month falls on a Sunday. Smiley

Obviously - but when does it happen again?  Something for the pedants to work out.

Also apply for the 30th, for example January 2011 has 5 Saturdays and Sundays.
