# What's the date 61 days from today?

## Thursday September 19, 2024

0

61 days from today is 19 Sep 2024, a Thursday. Calculating over the equivalent days of a month means multiple weeks, multiple weekends and officially crossing into August from the middle of July. Since today is Saturday, the calculation could be adjusted for work days. But If you just want the overall days, nothing will change. Key difference with adding days that span a full month is that shorter calculations might only require counting days and possibly adjusting for a single weekend. Adding 61 days across July requires us to account for multiple weekends, work schedules, and the specific nuances of being in the middle of July jumping to August.

## How we calculated 61 days from 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 adding 61 days to today's date gets calculated on each visit:

• Started with date inputs: starting point: 20 Jul, Units to add: 61 days, and year: 2024
• Noted your current time of year: 11 days in middle of July
• Added 61 days from current day: 20 Jul, factoring in there are 11 days left in before August
• Did NOT factor in workdays: In this calculation, we kept weekend. See below for just workdays or the 2024 fiscal calendar.

### Tips to get your solution: September 19

Thursday Thursday September 19, 2024 is the 263 day of the year or 72.05% through 2024.

• Current date: 20 Jul
• Day of the week: Thursday
• New Date: Thursday September 19, 2024
• New Date Day of the week: Thursday
• Counting dates from July might put you in the fall. Remember, July is a big vacation month so you might need to factor in vacation time in your calculation.
• This calculation crosses at least one month. Remeber, this will change our day of the week.

## Ways to calculate 61 days from today

1. Just calculate it: Start with a time from today calculator. 61 days is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the days in + all number of days in each month and the number of days in 2024. 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 July's calendar: Begin by identifying on a calendar, note that it’s Thursday, and the total days in August (trust me, you’ll need this for smaller calculations) and days until next year (double trust me, you'll need this for larger calculations). From there, count forward 61 times by days, adding days from 20 Jul.
3. Use Excel: Regardless of unit type, I use day calculations here. Type =TODAY()+61 into the cell. If you want to add weeks, multiply your day by 7 and months/years will take their own calculation due to the changing days of the week. To find 61 days workdays, convert to days but use =WORKDAY(TODAY(), [number of days], [holidays]) into the cell. [number of days] is how many working days you want to add, and [holidays] is an optional range of cells that contain dates of holidays to exclude.

## 61 working days from today

61 days is Thursday September 19, 2024 or could be Sunday October 13, 2024 if you only want workdays. This calculation takes 61 days and only adds by the number of workdays in a week. Remember, removing the weekend from our calculation will drastically change our original Thursday September 19, 2024 date.
