## Seconds Since Year 0

This tool converts seconds since year 0 to human-readable dates.

It's compatible with MySQL's `TO_SECONDS`

function (MySQL 5.5+).

Year 0 is defined as 0000-00-00 00:00 GMT. Please note that **this is not a valid date**! There is no year 0.

At this time there are ~**63876382780** seconds since year 0 (6.388*10^{10}).

Visit the homepage to convert to/from seconds since 1/1/1970.

There were **738943** days since January 1, 1 AD.

## Days Since 1900-01-01

There were **45348** days since January 1, 1900.

This number (**+2**) is used in the Microsoft Excel date functions such as `DAY(serial_number)`

and `WEEKDAY()`

.

**Note**, Excel's serial number is **2 higher** than the number on this page.

- In Excel January 1 is serial number 1. In this converter midnight January 1, 1900 is 0, after 1 day it is midnight on January 2. To correct this you have to add/subtract 1.
- Excel incorrectly sees 1900 as a leap year (for compatibility with Lotus 1-2-3) so you have to add/subtract 1 to all days when using in Excel. Also see: Excel incorrectly assumes that the year 1900 is a leap year

## Days Since 1904-01-01

There were **43888** days since January 1, 1904h.

This number (+1) was used for Microsoft Excel date functions on earlier versions **only** for the Mac.
