International standard date and time notation
International Standard ISO 8601 specifies numeric representations of date and time.
It helps to avoid confusion caused by the many different national notations.

  • Date The international standard date notation is YYYY-MM-DD where YYYY is the year in the usual Gregorian calendar, MM is the month of the year between 01 (January) and 12 (December), and DD is the day of the month between 01 and 31

  • For example, the fourth day of February in the year 1995 is written in the standard notation as 1995-02-04 Other commonly used notations are e.g

  • write “1995-02-04 22:45:00”) the notation is short and has constant length, which makes both keyboard data entry and table layout easier identical to the Chinese date notation, so the largest cultural group (>25%) on this planet is already familiar with it :-) date notations with the order “year, month, day” are in addition already widely used e.g

  • are already used to at least the “month, day” order a 4-digit year representation avoids overflow problems after 2099-12-31 As dates will look a little bit strange anyway starting with 2000-01-01 (e.g

  • like 1/1/0), it has been suggested that the year 2000 is an excellent opportunity to change to the standard date notation

  • All of these alternatives can easily and automatically be distinguished from each other: The hyphens can be omitted if compactness of the representation is more important than human readability, for example as in 19950204 If only the month or even only the year is of interest: 1995-02 or 1995 In commercial and industrial applications (delivery times, production plans, etc.), especially in Europe, it is often required to refer to a week of a year - 2News - Utah's source for breaking news, weather and sports

  • Here is a list of years with the same Julian date or Gregorian date of Orthodox Easter, AD 1875-2124

  • Here is a of years with the same date of Western Easter, AD 1875-2124

  • (These Feasts may or may not be celebrated by other Christian denominations.) For years before 1583 , only the dates of Christmas and Easter are calculated

  • If the date of Easter was based on local observations, then it would be possible for different parts of the world to celebrate Easter on different dates in the same year

  • And some countries that switched to the Gregorian calendar used a different definition of Easter for some time (parts of Germany and Sweden used tables based on the observations of Tycho Brahe to determine Easter for many years after the Gregorian calendar was adopted in those locations)

  • An interesting upshot of the algorithm is that the cycle of Easter dates (in the Gregorian Calendar) repeats every 5, 700, 000 years - and no sooner! (See the for why the period has this particular length.) Using the algorithms, I have calculated the distribution of the Gregorian Easter dates over various periods of time
