My favorite month is longer this year

This is the only time you see this phenomenon in your life. Calendar August 2014

Sun Mon Tues Wed Thur Fri Sat 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31

August, next year, will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens only once every 823 years. The Chinese call it 'Silver pockets full.

Glad I'm alive to see it this year - Don't think I'll be around the next time it happens!

I guess you're not planning on living very long, this actually happens every time August 1st lands on a Friday, which on average is every 7 years, not 823.
