What's the date 79 days from today?


Saturday October 05, 2024


79 days from today is 05 Oct 2024, a Saturday. 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 Thursday, we'll have to adjust for the weekend, if you care about the number of work days. 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 79 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.

Ways to calculate 79 days from today

  1. Just calculate it: Start with a time from today calculator. 79 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 Saturday, 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 79 times by days, adding days from 18 Jul.
  3. Use Excel: Regardless of unit type, I use day calculations here. Type =TODAY()+79 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 79 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.
