It will tell you when your next anniversary is and how many years it represents plus what day of the week it falls on. This gives you some idea of what you need to plan to celebrate.
Also, it will tell you how long it has been since the date itself and, just because, when the next (or last) half-year anniversary is (or was).
Sure, but it isn't as easy.
Yes. (See the same question in the Birthday Calculator section for more incredibly boring information.)
Check out how we calculate half days in the Half Birthday Calculator section.
If the anniversary falls on February 29th we consider the anniversary to be March 1st in non-leap years because we are counting days.
You enter a date and, optionally, a time that you want to count down to and we'll display how long you have until that date (and time) arrives. Or, enter a date in the past and we'll show you how long it has been since then.
You get a page with a link that will always display your countdown (count up?) so you can bookmark the page to make it easy to go back to or send it to your friends. You can give it a title so you know what's what.
Yes. It will "roll over", too. So when your appointed time arrives it will start counting up from that point.
It is as accurate as your host device (computer, smart phone, etc.) It gets it's time from your device so if the time is off on your device, the countdown will be, too.
Timezones can play havoc with countdowns, too. If you set up a link then change the time zone you are in, the link will be wrong by the difference between the original and new time zones.
No. You are only limited by the number of links you want to keep track of.
Reminders are just that - a reminder of a date that you want to remember. Let's say you find out when your friend's half birthday is but it is months away. Set up a reminder and we'll send you an email or text message when the date approaches. They can be set up for anything you want to be sure not to miss.
As many as you want. Each date can have three reminders: one week before the date, two days before the date and on the date itself. This should give you enough time to prepare for the big day.
You could go with just an email message or, if you know the email-to-SMS gateway address, you could try entering that in the email box. Most carriers have an email address that you can send message to that are turned into text messages. Check with your carrier to if they have something like that. If you figure it out, let us know and we'll add it to the list.
You can remind yourself of one date up to three times: one week before (-7 days), 2 days before and on the date itself.
We try to send out reminders starting at about 6:00 am local time but it may be a later depending on how many we have to send out on a particular day. When you set up the reminder we get your local time zone from your device (computer, phone, etc.) so if it is not set properly or that information is not available, the reminders may be a little later or earlier.
Also, if you change time zones after setting up the reminder they may come a little later or earlier, too. Then you have to figure in the delay caused by the delivery method. Most email is pretty fast and so are text messages but they can introduce a delay.
No. Just cancel it and set up a new one.
Yes. When you set up the reminder we will send you an email or text with a code in it. If you want to cancel a reminder go to www.eventcalc.com/reminder enter the code in the box and hit the Delete button.
Relax - we'll send it to you when the time comes. After all, that's what we do.
Panic!! No, just kidding. It is possible that you entered your email or phone number wrong (someone else might be getting a weird message) or your mobile carrier lost it (that wouldn't surprise you, would it?) or the email went on vacation. Don't worry about it. Just set up the reminder again.
There is no way to recover the code and we don't let anyone see/search/find your email or phone number so it is lost forever. It'll be deleted on the next trash day. The bits will be recycled into new, useful reminders.
If you need a reminder for two days from now you need more help than we can give you. You can set a reminder for any time between seven days from the present day to 13 months later - those are the rules. If you would like it to work some different way, let us know. Maybe we'll include your feature request in some future update.
Yes it is safe and no, it will not be used for spam, sold or written on any wall. We obviously have to save your email address or phone number in order to send you the reminder but that is all we do with it. Two weeks after the last reminder is sent the entire record is deleted from our database.
We will send you one email or text message to verify that you are who you say you are and finalize the set up of the reminder and then the reminders themselves (depending on how many you have asked for) and that is it.
We hate spam and try to protect ourselves from spam and we think it is only fair to do the same with your data. This is for fun and spam isn't any fun.
Does anyone write email addresses on bathroom walls? That sounds so old school and creepy all at the same time.
The Half Birthday Calculator and other date based tools we offer cost money to host and support but we offer them to you for free. To help pay for the site we host advertisements. We are careful to only allow certain kinds of advertisers and products but we want to know if you see an ad that offends you or you think is inappropriate. When you click an ad you see here you help us keep this service free.
Uh oh. You don’t see any ads?
You must have an ad blocker or have your browser set to block ads. Ads can be annoying but our ads aren’t! They don’t make noise, flash in your face or get in the way. They just provide us with a few pennies that we use to keep this service up and running. You can allow ads for EventCalc.com and continue blocking ads from other sites.
Or, you can show your appreciation for having the awesome power of EventCalc available to you by buying us a few seconds of server time by clicking the Donate button. You will feel amazing for donating and we will be forever grateful.
EventCalc is for fun only.
We don't make claims about suitability for anything other than giving you an excuse to throw a party or have a good day.
You are free to use the calculators and reminders for any purpose you see fit. You are free to link to EventCalc or the individual calculators but you are not allowed to embed them into your own web page.
You are not allowed to mechanically (through code, robots, etc.) query the calculators - they are for human use only. If any non-Earthlings would like to use the calculators please contact us (link on the bottom of the page) and we'll talk.
This policy covers the Half Birthday Calculator, Anniversary Calculator, Reminders and Event Count Down services.
Last updated on 7 Feb 2018.
We don't collect any data about you other than what happens on web servers automatically (logs and such) or, in the case of Reminders, your email address or mobile number where reminders are sent.
Nothing that we collect is correlated with anything that could be considered personal information (except, again, your email address or cell phone number for reminders). If you give us an email address or phone number for a reminder, we delete it within two weeks of sending your last reminder or if you cancel your reminders. We don't keep them, sell them, or send them to anyone else.
We don't collect names, physical addresses, dress sizes or make and model of car. This is for fun and we don't really care about your personal information anyway. We want you to have fun so stop reading this trash and find a day to throw a party.
This policy applies to the Half Birthday Calculator, Anniversary Calculator, Count Down, and Reminder services.
