Want to figure out the date that is exactly one hundred and twenty days from Sep 1, 2017 without counting?
Your starting date is September 1, 2017 so that means that 120 days later would be December 30, 2017.
You can check this by using the date difference calculator to measure the number of days from Sep 1, 2017 to Dec 30, 2017.
December 30th, 2017 is a Saturday. It is the 364th day of the year, and in the 52nd week of the year (assuming each week starts on a Sunday), or the 4th quarter of the year.
