## Calculate the date using the day number of a year

The day number is the number of a specific day in the year. In normal years, the day number can be between 1 and 365, in leap years between 1 and 366. This online calculator calculates which date and which day of the week belong to any day number in a year. The year can be freely chosen.

In normal years, the same day numbers fall on the same date; for example, day no.358 is always December 24th (Christmas Eve) in normal years. The same applies to leap years. Between In normal years and leap years, however, the date of the same day numbers deviates from one another, starting in March, because the leap day extends February. In leap years, December 24th is the 359th day.
