Explanation

The widely shared post claims that February 2024 is a special and supernatural month, and it happens once every 823 years. The user went on to add, “This February has 4 Sundays 4 Mondays 4 Tuesdays 4 Wednesdays 5 Thursdays 4 Fridays 4 Saturdays.” However, post with such similar claim is seen circulated earlier and can be seen here.

What’s the truth?

Simple math explains that the viral claim about the February days is wrong. Either 30 days (April, June, September, and November) or 31 days (January, March, May, July, August, October, and December) make up each month of the year. February is not like the others. Except for leap years, it has 28 days.

In contrast, February has 29 days during the leap year. This comes in a gap of every four years. As a result, some days occur five times a month, while the remaining four days fall on four occasions. To maintain calendar accuracy, leap years add one extra day to February. This year, February 2024, has 29 days because this is a leap year. So you don’t need to wait for 823 years for the next “MiracleIn” to happen. For example, since it’s a leap year, in February 2024, you can see that all four days occur four times, except for one day which comes five times a month.

But this won’t be seen in the upcoming years, 2025, 2026, and 2027. Then you will experience the same scene of one day five times a month in 2028 (the next leap year), followed by 2032, and so on.

All this clarifies that there’s nothing special or supernatural about February.

Conclusion:

Thus, we conclude that the viral claim stating that February 2024 is a special and supernatural month and that its kind happens once every 823 years is false.

In reality, it occurs every leap year since February has 29 days at that time, and that occurs every four years.
