The Wikipedia entry on the Gregorian calendar is full of interesting historical facts. For instance, did you know that in three years two countries had February 30ths? What's more, Friday is more likely to be on the 13th of a month than any other day because 688 out of the 4800 months in a 400-year Gregorian cycle begin on a Sunday. Speaking of which, the days and dates of 2005 exactly match up with those of 1605... in the Catholic countries that were punctual adopters of the Gregorian calendar, anyway.
