Everyone can enjoy their bonus summer week–A bonus 15th week of summer which starts tomorrow. On a typical year, we have 14 weeks of summer, the weeks in between Memorial Day and Labor Day. This year the alignment allows the extra fifteenth week between the two holidays. This only happens when there is six May days after Memorial Day and 6 September days before Labor Day. Only once every 5-7 years does the alignment happen. Next year this will happen is the year 2026. Enjoy the bonus summer weeks with an extra weekend and extra week to enjoy a vacation week. The summer of 2020. One to remember!
One thought on “Leap Year Includes a Bonus – An Extra Week of Summer…Enjoy!!”
WOW! I didn’t know this! I just know that there are 52 weeks in a year, 12 months, 365 days. The summer of 2020 will be one to remember anyway. Our summer has been a scorcher, with masks on, and less get togethers. So we can’t really take advantage of the extra week that has come every few years 😢
