A year has 52 weeks plus 1 day.

One calendar year has 365 days, which are divided into 7-day weeks. To know how many weeks there are in a year, you just divide the number of days there are in a year (365) by how many days there are in a week (7).

The result will be the average number of weeks there are in a year, which is approximately 52.143, or 52 weeks plus 1 day.

Every four years there is a leap year, which has 366 days. By the same calculations, we can understand that in leap years there are 52 weeks and 2 days.

If we want to get even more specific, we can say that:

  • 1 year = 52 weeks and weekends
  • 1 year = 12 months
  • 1 year = 0.1 decades
  • 1 year = 8.760 hours
  • 1 year = 525.600 minutes

Some Fun Facts about Weeks

  • A week has 7 days because the Gregorian calendar follows the phases of the moon. Although the Moon takes 29.5 days to cycle through its phases, this is a hard number to base a time span on. It was the Babylons that rounded this cycle down to 28 days and divided into period units of 4, with 7 days each. This is why there are 4 weeks in a month.
  • In the English language, Saturday, Sunday and Monday are named after three of the planets considered to be gods - Saturn, Sun and Moon - while the other days are named after Germanic or Norse gods.
  • Although the international standard defines that the week starts on a Monday, in the United States the norm is still to count Sunday as the first day of the week.
