Today is Doomsday!
February 28, 2015
Today, the last day of February, is a Saturday. The last day of February is also known as "Doomsday" but more on that in a moment.
Since the last day of February this year is a Saturday, this means that:
4/4, 6/6, 8/8, 10/10, and 12/12, i.e. April 4, June 6, August 8, October 10, and December 12, are all Saturday this year
"I work 9-5 at the 7-11" so 9/5, 5/9, 7/11, and 11/7, i.e. September 5, May 9, July 11, and November 7, are also Saturday this year
since 2015 is not a leap year, so January 3rd was a Saturday
July 4, for all eleven of my American readers (down two from last year -- you know who you are, and thanks again for visiting my site), is a Saturday
July 1, Canada Day, is three days earlier, on Wednesday
September 5 is a Saturday, and 2 days later is Monday the 7th; a week earlier would be in August, so Labour Day is Monday, September 7th this year
October 10 is a Saturday, so 2 days later is Monday the 12th, which has to be the second Monday in the month, so Canada's Thanksgiving Day, also Columbus Day in the US, is Monday, October 12th
Since December 12 is a Saturday, then so is December 26, so Christmas Eve this year is on Thursday, as is New Year's Eve a week later.
