 Puzzle Calendar (Posted on 2016-05-09)
I have a puzzle calendar with a page for every weekday plus one page covering each Saturday/Sunday pair. It has a puzzle on every page, so that most weeks I get six puzzles. If I get a revised version of this calendar year after year there are occasions, when a year ends on a Saturday, that I'll get a puzzle for Saturday on the old calendar and one for Sunday on the new calendar.

How many puzzles will I see in a typical year? What are the exceptions to this, depending on leap year or the day of the week the year starts?

Perhaps I'm mixing things but what about a regular year that begins on saturday and ends on sunday? It will have 53 weekends and so just 312 puzzles.

An a leap year that begins on friday or saturday will have only 313 (not 314).
