Holiday Weekday Daze

Apr 06, 2002

RAY: Everyone knows that New Year's Day follows Christmas Day by one week. For example, if Christmas is Monday, then New Year's Day will be on a Monday, too.

This is something you can count on in planning your holidays.

Here's the question. What is the most recent year in which Christmas and New Year's Day fell on different days of the week?

RAY: And the answer is...last year! And the year before. They are a week apart but they're in different years.

TOM: They're in different years. Every year they fall on a different day.

RAY: Yeah. So who's our winner?

TOM: The winner is Ken McCorkle from Lakewood, Colorado.
