First of all, I wish everyone a happy 2014! As the new year begins, we start using and/or organising a new calendar.
At work we have several discussions during the year about week numbers. Collegaes state that a particular date is in a certain week, in théir calendar. Others disagree. But who's right?
In many e-mail and calendar applications, one has to choose the weeknumbering. Options for Week 1 are:
- the week of January 1st,
- the first week with at least four days in the new year and
- the first full week in the new year.
In the Netherlands - where I live - option 2 is correct. Ergo, Week 1 is the first week with at least four days in the new year.
