One of the reasons for posting this here, is that it shows the elegance of the HP 17Bii solver. The other reason is that it's fun, and can be useful (if only because you know when to open the first window of the Advent calendar ;-) ). First of all, here is the short and simple HP 17Bii Solver equation: (both the solver and program assume DD.MMYYYY). Code: ``` ADVDATE = DATE( L( XMAS : YEAR ÷ 1000000 + 25.12 ) : ( ( MOD( DDAYS( 1.0119 : G( XMAS ) : 1 ) : 7 ) + 22 ) x - 1 ) )``` And here is the HP 41CX/DM41L program, which takes the year in the X register (just following the equation; maybe could be optimised further). Code: ``` LBL "ADVDATE" 1000000 / 25.12 + STO 00 1.0119 X<>Y DDAYS  ;XROM 26,14 7 MOD 22 + CHS RCL 00 X<>Y DATE+  ;XROM 26,13 END``` Running on the 17Bii: Enter YEAR: 2021 Solve ADVDATE: 28,112021 Running on the DM41L: 2021 XEQ ADVDATE 28,112021 Of course, the program (and equation) only works for the Gregorian calendar. Monday Jan. 1, 1900 was chosen because I liked that date (any date works, as long as you adjust the offset (currently 22) in the equation. BTW; I do not have a HP 41CX, but I do have a SwissMicros DM41L; I tested the program on the DM41L. RE: (41CX/DM41)(17Bii) Date of the first Advent Sunday in a year - ggauny@live.fr - 08-10-2020 03:02 PM Hi, I see your thread a little late but here is a little routine of mine I was using with my HP 41c (+ time module) or my HP 41cx. Instead of DDays I'm using DOW, but unfortunatly DOW gives 0 if the day is a sunday, (HP Prime gives 7). So we have to "adjust" in case of DOW gives a 0. Code: ``` 01 LBL "DIMAVENT' 02 7                        //Here is the adjust. 03 x<>y 04 1e6 05 / 06 25.12 07 + 08 ENTER 09 DOW 10 x=0? 11 x<> Z                 // or RCL+ ST Z on HP 42s, FREE42, DM42 12 21 13 + 14 CHS 15 DATE+ 16 END``` Of course runing on dm41, dm41x too and some other calculator. 2016 gives 27.112016 for example, 1582 gives 28.111582 In attachement I give 2 EXCEL calendars. May be usefull. Have a good day. RE: (41CX/DM41)(17Bii) Date of the first Advent Sunday in a year - Werner - 08-11-2020 08:03 AM If you use 12.12 instead of 25.12, and change the 21 to 8, it will work for M.DY format as well. [update] not quite.. but if you use 12.12, then do 13 DAYS+, then proceed as before, it will ;-) [update #2] and if you take the first of January of the next year (which is always the same Day of Week as Christmas), it's even simpler: Code: ``` 1  +  1E6  /  1.01  +  ENTER  DOW  +/-  7  MOD  35  -  DATE+``` Cheers, Werner RE: (41CX/DM41)(17Bii) Date of the first Advent Sunday in a year - Wolfgang - 01-22-2021 01:27 PM (08-10-2020 03:02 PM)ggauny@live.fr Wrote:  Hi, I see your thread a little late but here is a little routine of mine I was using with my HP 41c (+ time module) or my HP 41cx.

So we have to "adjust" in case of DOW gives a 0. No need to adjust, just shift the reference to Christmas Eve. Better yet, reference to Dec 3, eliminated the need to subtract 21 days. 1st Advent Sunday = (Dec 3) - DOW(Dec 3) days ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ // Nov 27 to Dec 3 Code below assumed date format MM.DDYYYY Code: ```00 { 29-Byte Prgm } 01▸LBL "DIMAVEN" 02 1ᴇ6 03 ÷ 04 12.03   ; Dec 3 05 + 06 ENTER 07 DOW 08 +/- 09 DATE+ 10 END``` Since DOW(Dec 3) = DOW(Dec 31), we can even do this in the head, using facts below: 1. Gregorian calendar repeat itself every 400 years. 2. DOW(Dec 31, 2000) = 0 (Sunday) 3. 365 days = 52 weeks + 1 day Example, Year 2016: 2016 % 400 = 16 leap years count = IP(16/4) - IP(16/100) = 4 DOW(Dec 31, 2016) = (4 + 16) % 7 = 6 (Dec 3, 2016) - 6 days = Nov 27, 2016 Example, Year 2021: 2021 % 400 = 21 leap years count = IP(21/4) - IP(21/100) = 5 DOW(Dec 31, 2021) = (5 + 21) % 7 = 5 (Dec 3, 2021) - 5 days = Nov 28, 2021 RE: (41CX/DM41)(17Bii) Date of the first Advent Sunday in a year - ggauny@live.fr - 01-24-2021 10:35 AM Hi Albert, Thank for the optimisation !!! Great.
