Discover the Day with Our Day of the Week Calculator


Ever wondered what day of the week a particular date fell on or will fall on? Our Day of the Week Calculator is here to unravel the mystery. Ideal for historians, researchers, students, and the curious mind, this tool makes it easy to find the weekday for any given date, past or future.

Understanding the Calculator

This intuitive tool requires just a date to instantly reveal the corresponding day of the week. Whether planning events, researching historical dates, or satisfying your curiosity, the calculator provides accurate results instantly.

How It Works

  1. Input the Date: Select the month, day, and year you're interested in.
  2. Instant Calculation: The calculator uses sophisticated algorithms to determine the exact day of the week corresponding to the given date.


The calculator employs algorithms based on Zeller's Congruence, a formula developed by Christian Zeller to calculate the day of the week for any Julian or Gregorian calendar date:

\[ h = (q + \left\lfloor\frac{13(m + 1)}{5}\right\rfloor + K + \left\lfloor\frac{K}{4}\right\rfloor + \left\lfloor\frac{J}{4}\right\rfloor - 2J) \mod 7 \]

  • \( h \) is the day of the week (0 = Saturday, 1 = Sunday, ..., 6 = Friday)
  • \( q \) is the day of the month
  • \( m \) is the month (3 = March, 4 = April, ..., 14 = February)
  • \( K \) is the year of the century (\( year \mod 100 \))
  • \( J \) is the zero-based century (actually \( \left\lfloor\frac{year}{100}\right\rfloor \))

Practical Uses

From event planning to historical research, educational projects, and satisfying personal curiosity, the Day of the Week Calculator serves a multitude of purposes.
