Specific Days Of The Week, Month and Year

With this calculator you can determine on what date a specific day of the week occurs, for instance the third Sunday of April on or after the 15th.
The calculator doesn't check the sanity of the input, so entering data should be done carefully. Current years are 4-digit numbers, not 2 digit numbers. The calculator only works for the Gregorian calendar, which is used in most parts of the Western world.

The second Monday of August on/after the 15th, etc.
Calculate the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, if existing the 5th, or the last weekday (like Monday, Saturday, etc.) of a certain month in a certain year.
If needed, enter an offset day after or before which the counting should start. The offset day is included in the counting if it is the selected weekday.
An offset day has no effect if the last weekday (of a month) is selected. If e.g. the last Sunday on/before day n is needed, select the first Sunday on/before day n. It is also possible to select before or after instead of on/before, on/after.
