Calculating days between two dates
Working out the number of days between two dates can be a tricky calculation. To begin with, there's the obvious consideration of the different number of days in each month. We know that there's 365 days in a regular year. If there's a leap year involved then an extra day is added. A leap year occurs every 4 years and means that February has 29 days instead of 28.
Then we get into months and the mnemonic to help remember the number of days in each:
"Thirty days have September, April, June, and November. February has 28 alone (or 29 in a leap year), And all the rest have 31."
The calculator on this page works by getting the time stamp of the start date and deducting it from the end date (or vice-versa if the end date is in the past) before calculating the number of days, months and years between them.
How many days since I was born?
To calculate the number of days since you were born, use the calculator at the top of this page. Simply enter your date of birth as the start date and then ensure that the end date is set to today's date (if it isn't already set, click the 'today' link that appears to the right of the box). Then click the 'Calculate' button. In a world where privacy of personal data is hugely important, please rest assured that I do not store any of the information you enter into my calculator.
On what day was I born?
As well as telling you how many days you've been on our planet, my calculator is also able to work out what day you were born on. As an alternative, you could try the birthday calculator, which will show you all sorts of fun facts about your birthday, including the day on which you were born.
