Leap Years

If a leap year is involved, you will sometimes have to make a slight alteration to the calculation. Leap years are divisible by 4 (1980, 1984, 1988, 1992, etc.) Let us suppose the date you are asked is in a leap year and falls between 1 January and 29 February. In this case (and no other), simply subtract 1 from your final total. If the date falls within a leap year, but is outside January or February, simply carry out the calculation as before.

Example 4: 14 February 1952.

2. Month code: February = feBREWERY

= boat unloading kegs of beer = 4

3. Year code: 1952 = Eric Bristow playing darts in spare room = 2

Subtract 1 from 6, because it is a leap year (and the date falls between 1 January and 29 February) and you are left with 5.

14 February 1980 was a Thursday.

(Please note that the year 1900 was not a leap year. The only century leap years are those divisible by 400. The year 2000 will be a leap year.)
