December 29th, 2011 is a Thursday. It is the 363rd day of the year, and in the 52nd week of the year (assuming each week starts on a Sunday), or the 4th quarter of the year. There are 31 days in this month. 2011 is not a leap year, so there are 365 days in this year. The short form for this date used in the United States is 12/29/2011, and almost everywhere else in the world it's 29/12/2011.

What if you only counted weekdays?

In some cases, you might want to skip weekends and count only the weekdays. This could be useful if you know you have a deadline based on a certain number of business days. If you are trying to see what day falls on the exact date difference of 3 weekdays before Jan 1, 2012, you can count up each day skipping Saturdays and Sundays.

Start your calculation with Jan 1, 2012, which falls on a Sunday. Counting forward, the next day would be a Monday.

To get exactly one hundred weekdays before Jan 1, 2012, you actually need to count 5 total days (including weekend days). That means that 3 weekdays before Jan 1, 2012 would be December 27, 2011.

If you're counting business days, don't forget to adjust this date for any holidays.
