Leap year DOES effect Ash Wednesday calculation
Posted May 23, 2012 7:02 PM
(Sorry to beat this issue to death.)
Ash Wednesday is Easter Sunday minus 46 days.
If you do this calculation by hand on your calendar by counting backwards from Easter Sunday, and this is a leap year, you will automatically compensate for the leap year.
However, to program this minus 46 days on a leap year, is another matter.
Your code MUST be aware that it is leap year. (See Lawgin's sample code on February 23, 2012.)
