What was the date 188 days ago?


Friday December 15, 2023


188 days ago from today was 15 Dec 2023, a Friday. Subtracting 188 days, or about six months or more, introduces a complex layer of our calculation. Since today is Thursday, we'll have to adjust for the weekend, if you care about the number of work days. Currently, in the middle of of June, we must consider the 20 days left out of the 30 to gauge the weekends involved. Understanding the number of weeks remaining in 2024 is crucial to determine whether we're looking back into a previous year. My advice? Start with weekly or monthly calculations before jumping into a 188 day calculation.

How we calculated 188 days before today

All of our day calculators are measured and QA'd by our engineer. Read more about the Git process here. But here's how 188 days ago gets calculated on each visit:

  1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 20 Jun, then set the calculation - 188 days, and factored in the year 2024
  2. Noted your current time of year: 188 days in June will bring us back to May or further.
  3. Counted backwards days from current day: date - 20 Jun, factoring in the 20 days left in June to calculate Friday December 15, 2023
  4. Did NOT factor in workdays: In this calculation, we kept weekend. See below for just workdays or the fiscal calendar

Tips when solving for December 15

  • Current date: 20 Jun
  • Day of the week: Friday
  • New Date: Friday December 15, 2023
  • New Date Day of the week: Friday
  • December marks the end of the year, so account for all the out of office notifications when counting backwards.
  • This calculation crosses at least one month. Remeber, this will change our day of the week.
  • The solution crosses into a different year.
  • Your date will be a weekend. Consider if you only want workdays in your calculation.

Ways to calculate 188 days ago

  1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 188 days is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the 20 days in June + all number of days in each month and the number of days in . Simply add your days and choose the length of time, then click "calculate". This calculation does not factor in workdays or holidays (see below!).
  2. Use June's calendar: Begin by identifying 20 Jun on a calendar, note that it’s Friday, and the total days in May (trust me, you’ll need this for smaller calculations) and days until last year (double trust me, you'll need this for larger calculations). From there, count backwards 188 times days by days, subtracting days from until your remainder of days is 0.
  3. Use excel: For more complex days calculations or if you h8 our site (kidding), I use Excel functions like =TODAY()-188 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -188, cell:cell) for working days.
