Known as the latter half of the week, knowing how long until Thursday is useful for planning the tasks that need to be completed before the end of the week.

Thursday is not generally considered a special day of the week, but it's often referred to as one of the best days of the working week. This is because there are no expectations on a Thursday, unlike a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday, which all represent something significant.

Use the countdown to Thursday to see how many hours until Thursday at any given moment.

## When is Thursday?

Thursday is the day that **falls between Wednesday and Friday** in the standard week. In professional settings, it's known as the "end of the week", despite Friday being the final day of the working week.

## How Many Thursdays Are There in 1 Year?

Depending on the year, you can usually **expect to have 52 Thursdays in 1 year**. Most months either have four or five Thursdays.

The number of Thursdays in each month (whether it's four or five) depends on how many days are in the previous month and what date the first Thursday fell on.

For example, if the first day of the month falls on a Sunday, there will usually be four Thursdays in a month. But if the first day of the month falls on a Wednesday, there will likely be five Thursdays in a month.

The above does however depend on how many days are in the month (whether there are 28, 29, 30, or 31 days).

## What is Thursday of the Week?

Thursday is usually **considered the fourth day of the week**. However, officially, Thursday is considered the fifth day of the week.

This is because the week is actually Sunday to Sunday (not Monday to Friday or Monday to Sunday).

Few people ever refer to Thursday as the fifth day of the week, as it's more popular to refer to the days of the week in working terms.
