Year Beginning March 1

If one begins each year on March 1, then each date will have the same day number in this year, regardless of whether it is a leap year or not (e.g. December 25 is always day 300). Also the months follow a regular 5-month cycle of 153 days, till the end of February. This can be seen by listing the number of days in the months thus:

Mar 31   Aug 31   Jan 31
Apr 30   Sep 30   Feb 28/29
May 31   Oct 31
Jun 30   Nov 30
Jul 31   Dec 31

This regularity is sometimes used in calendar calculations.
