Special Month



(By the way, I don't believe in the luck stuff one bit. It's just that I find the fact that that there are five Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in a single month during our lifetimes is amazing)

2. nope



August 2014 has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays. The next time that the 2014 calendar repeats itself is in the year 2025, which is only 11 years later. What’s more, a calendar month that contains 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays occurs nearly every year: After August 2014, the next occurrence is in May 2015.
