Default March is a Five Weekend Month - Once in every 823 years

I was reminded the other day that there are five full weekends this month - e.g. five Fridays, five Saturdays and five Sundays.

What I didn't know is the phenomenon of having five full weekends apparently only happens once every 823 years.

If you're having a Sales Meeting you might want to remind your crew that they have a great opportunity this month - one that they'll never see again....

That's just a myth. A calendar month that has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays occurs nearly every year. Next one is August 2014.

Thanks for the correction - you're 100% correct.

I received the "fact" that March was a unique month in an email that my Dad forwarded to me and I never bothered to check it out on Scopes.

My Dad was convinced he'd never be alive to see another month with five full weekends - I wonder how he'll take the news when he learns the next one is in August, 2014....
