The Holiday Daze

Nov 14, 2015

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.

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.
