The “Thursday rule” from ISO 8601 specifies that the first and last week of a calendar year are part of the “week year” that most of their days belong to. This happens to be equivalent to the year a 7-day week’s 4th day falls into, which is Thursday according to international standards, because Monday is the first day of the week there.

Year boundary Edit

All month dates can fall in one of two weeks, except for 29 December through 2 January which can be in W52, W53 or W01.

Adaptation Edit

If the rule was also applied to months etc., irregular patterns ensue. The tables below show leap year numbers in right-hand column if they differ from common years. They also list the Dominical letter which is not used by ISO but in calculations of the date of Easter.
