30 days ago from today was 28 Apr 2024, a Sunday. When calculating a period over two weeks in the past, it's important to account for the day of the week. Since today is Tuesday and still part of the beginning of the week we won't need to add additional days into next week. This takes our subtraction across multiple weeks, and with 28 days until the end of May counting backwards from today in the end of of the month means that subtracting 30 days ago will bring us back to April or further.

How we calculated 30 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 30 days ago gets calculated on each visit:

  1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 28 May, then set the calculation - 30 days, and factored in the year 2024
  2. Noted your current time of year: 30 days in May will bring us back to April or further.
  3. Counted backwards days from current day: date - 28 May, factoring in the 28 days left in May to calculate Sunday April 28, 2024
  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 April 28

  • Current date: 28 May
  • Day of the week: Sunday
  • New Date: Sunday April 28, 2024
  • New Date Day of the week: Sunday
  • April is the end of the quarter and the beginning of spring. It's also Phillies Opening Day, so plan according and take the week off work! (Go Phils)
  • This calculation crosses at least one month. Remeber, this will change our day of the week.

Ways to calculate 30 days ago

  1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 30 days is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the 28 days in May + 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 May's calendar: Begin by identifying 28 May on a calendar, note that it’s Sunday, and the total days in April (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 30 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()-30 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -30, cell:cell) for working days.

Working days in 30 calendar days

30 days is Sunday April 28, 2024 or could be if you only want workdays. This calculation takes 30 days and only subtracts by the number of workdays in a week. Remember, removing the weekend from our calculation will drastically change our original Sunday April 28, 2024 date.
