This year, July has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens Once every 823 years.


Oops! Not quite. July has five Fridays, five Saturdays and five Sundays every time July 1 falls on a Friday -- which happens pretty often.

For example, the last time it happened was in 2005. And prior to that in 1994, 1983, 1977, etc.

See the following Perpetual Calendar... every year that has a "7" next to it has the same calendar as 2011:
