Money Bags: Once Every 823 years


Hahaha, viral message that got everyone ticklish.

Every February has 28 days. Divided by 7 days a week equals 4 of each day ie 4 Sundays, 4 Mondays, 4 Tuesdays, 4 Wednesdays, 4 Thursdays, 4 Fridays & 4 Saturdays.

With the exception of Leap Years, which has 29 days, happens once every 4 years and next Leap Year is 2020.

Rumours that February 2019 has 4 of each day for the first time in 823 years is false coz that will occur at least once every 6 years.

But why wait for a viral message or your horoscope to tell you February is a good month?

Every month is a good month & every day is a good day. Cheers


5-5-5 Weekend Configuration
In 2019 March will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays

5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays in a month – happens only every 823 years? This popular urban myth has been circulating on the internet for a while. However, it is precisely that: a myth. Before you get too excited about this once-in-a-lifetime event and start telling your family and friends, know this: any such claims are false. Special combinations of days like 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays occur much more often than every 823 years!

The 823 Years Myth - If you own an email, Twitter, Facebook or any other social media account, chances are that you have come across an email or a post that claims an upcoming month has a very rare specific combination of days. A recent version goes something like this:
March 2019 will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays. This happens only once every 823 years. The Chinese call it “silver pockets full.”
The email is right in that March 2019 has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays. But this is nothing special or unusual. You will not have to wait another 823 years for the next time this happens in the month of December. Only 6 years later, in 2024, March will also have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays.
