0

68 years in the past was 25 Jun 1956, a Monday. Subtracting 68 years in the past is usually simple. Anything under a decade can usually be counted on one hand. The biggest challenge will be skipping decades behind or even centuries. Additionally, we’re 25 days from the end of June, so being in the end of of the month, you'll need to consider monthly changes as well. Weekly and daily changes most likely won't impact 68 years ago.

## How we calculated 68 years 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 68 years ago gets calculated on each visit:

1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 25 Jun, then set the calculation - 68 years, and factored in the year 2024
2. Noted your current time of year: 68 years in June will bring us back to May or further.
3. Counted backwards years from current day: date - 25 Jun, factoring in the 25 days left in June to calculate Monday June 25, 1956
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 June 25

• Current date: 25 Jun
• Day of the week: Monday
• New Date: Monday June 25, 1956
• New Date Day of the week: Monday
• June is the beginning of summer so be careful, counting backwards could put you in the chilly months of spring and winter.
• The solution crosses into a different year.

## Ways to calculate 68 years ago

1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 68 years 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 years 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 Monday, 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 68 times years by years, subtracting years from until your remainder of years is 0.
3. Use excel: For more complex years calculations or if you h8 our site (kidding), I use Excel functions like =TODAY()-68 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -68, cell:cell) for working years.

## Working years in 68 calendar years
