Once we celebrate our birthday or Christmas or any festival we always wonder when can we celebrate again. So what do we do ….we start to calculate how many weeks are in a year or how long we have wait .To put in another words how many weeks do we have to act good to get the next Christmas present from santa claus……
So here is the answer there are 52 weeks in a year. So we got to Wait for 52 weeks for next celebration……
According to the modern Gregorian calendar there are 365 days in a year……. How do we get an year…. It depends on the time earth takes to make a full revolution around the Sun. So how do we calculate the number of weeks in a year…….?
1 year=365 days
1 week = 7 days
So 1 year = 365 / 7= 52.14285714
1 year(commom)= 52 weeks + 1 day.
Now many will be wondering what about a leap year. A leap year has 366 days. In the leap year February has 29 days as opposed to common year February which has 28 days.
Yes ,leap year occurs after every 4 years.( I can feel the pain of those born on 29th of February…. “Well life is a celebration we can celebrate all days”)
So how do we know it’s a leap year. Its very easy to calculate….If we divide the year with 4 and its completely divisible then it’s a leap year.
So 2019….. is it a leap year…? No since its not divisible by 4 so its not a leap year…..
Similarly 2000 is divisible by 4…… so the year 2000 was a leap year.
We can see 1700,1800,1900 are also divisible 4 but they weren’t leap year only 2000 was a leap year….so the number should also be divisible by 400 if its a centurial year.
1 year=366 days
1 week = 7 days
So 1 year = 366 / 7= 52.285714
1 year(leap)= 52 weeks + 2 days.
Next year 2020 is a leap year as its divisible by 4. So those who were born on 29th feb can celebrate their birthday on actual birth date.
