## How to Count the Days Until New Year’s

You can count the days until New Year’s in a few different ways. The easiest is to use our New Year’s countdown calculator, but you can also refer to our days left in 2023 page.

### Method One: Using Subtraction

If the current month is December, then you can find how many days are left using subtraction. Subtract the current day from 31, since New Year’s is on January 1st, which is the first day of the next month. There are 31 days in December.

days until New Year’s = 31 – current day

If the current month is not December, then you’ll need to add the days left in the current month to the days in each month until the end of the year.

days until New Year’s = days left in current month + days in next month + … + days in December

You can use the same method to find how many days until Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, or any other significant date.

For instance, if it’s currently October 25th, then you can find the days until New Year’s like this:

days until New Year’s = 6 + 30 + 31
days until New Year’s = 67 days

In this example, there are 6 days remaining in the current month, plus 30 days in November, plus 31 days in December. Thus, there are 67 days left.

### Method Two: Using the Day Number

Another method you can use to count down the days until New Year’s is to subtract the current day number from the number of days in the year. There are 365 days in the year (366 for leap years), so you can subtract the day number from 365 to find the number of days until the new year.

For example, if it’s currently day 200 in the year and it is not a leap year, then you can count the days until New Year’s like this:

days until New Year’s = 365 – 200
days until New Year’s = 165 days

In this example, there are 165 days until the new year.
