  1. No it doesn’t, it happens whenever the month of August starts on a Sunday, and that happens every seven years, on average. How do these ridiculous things get started?

  2. Even August 2004 had 5 sundays, 5 Mondays, and 5 Tuesdays – all in one month.. Just chk it!! it doesn’t happen once in 823 years.. even August 2021 will have 5 sundays, 5 Mondays, and 5 Tuesdays – all in one month.

  3. It does not happen every 11 years. On average it happens every 7 years for any specific month.

    Basically any 31-day month has 5 of whatever the first three days are. Thus any 31-day month starting on a Sunday will have 5 Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays.

    Since there are 7 days in a week the chance of a month starting on a Sunday is 1 in 7.

    It does not happen every 7 years because of leap years. There is 11 years to the next one (2021) but only 6 to the next (2027) and 5 to the even after that (2032).

    If you are not fussy about the month, then since there are 7 months in the year with 31 days, on average 1 month a year will have 5 Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays.
