# Days Ago Calculator

## What is Days Ago Date Calculator ?

A "Days Ago Date Calculator" is a handy tool that helps you figure out how many days have passed since a certain date in the past. It's like a time machine for counting days. This can be useful for remembering important events or simply out of curiosity. It's a simple way to look back and see how much time has gone by!

### How to calculate the days ago date by hand ?

Here's how you can do it:

1. Choose the Dates: First, you need to know today's date and the date you want to find out how many days ago it was.

2. Count the Years: Find out how many full years have passed between today and the past date. For each full year, add 365 days.

3. Account for Leap Years: If any of the years in between are leap years, add an extra day for each leap year. Leap years happen every four years.

4. Count the Days in the Partial Year: If there's part of a year left (between today's date and the past date), count the days.

5. Add it All Up: Add the days from full years, the extra days for leap years, and the days in the partial year. That's your answer.

For example, let's say today is February 28, 2023, and you want to know how many days ago it was since February 29, 2020 (which was a leap year).

1. Full years: 3 years (from 2020 to 2023)

• Days in full years: 3 years x 365 days/year = 1095 days
2. Leap years: 1 leap year (2020 was a leap year)

• Extra day for leap year: 1 day
3. Partial year: 0 days (because you're already in February)

4. Add it up: 1095 days (full years) + 1 day (leap year) + 0 days (partial year) = 1096 days.

So, February 29, 2020, was 1096 days ago from February 28, 2023, accounting for the leap year.
