What was the date 51 days ago?


Sunday May 05, 2024


51 days ago from today was 05 May 2024, a Sunday. As we approach calculations over month in the past, the 30 days in June play significant roles, alongside 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. Counting backwards from today skips several weekends, meaning that subtracting 51 days takes us from the end of of June to potentially crossing far beyond June or May. For those of us focusing on workdays, subtracting 51 days ago necessitates adjustments for the fiscal calendar (don’t worry, I've accounted for it below).

How we calculated 51 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 51 days ago gets calculated on each visit:

  1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 25 Jun, then set the calculation - 51 days, and factored in the year 2024
  2. Noted your current time of year: 51 days in June will bring us back to May or further.
  3. Counted backwards days from current day: date - 25 Jun, factoring in the 25 days left in June to calculate Sunday May 05, 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 May 05

  • Current date: 25 Jun
  • Day of the week: Sunday
  • New Date: Sunday May 05, 2024
  • New Date Day of the week: Sunday
  • Counting backward from May could put you back in Q1 or even the previous year.
  • This calculation crosses at least one month. Remeber, this will change our day of the week.

Ways to calculate 51 days ago

  1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 51 days is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the 25 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 25 Jun on a calendar, note that it’s Sunday, 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 51 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()-51 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -51, cell:cell) for working days.

Working days in 51 calendar days

51 days is Sunday May 05, 2024 or could be if you only want workdays. This calculation takes 51 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 May 05, 2024 date.
