I never do it on the actual day. I often do it on Sunday, because that fits with my work life.

No. You will burn in hell forever for your mistake! :)
ye dhammā hetuppabhavā tesaṁ hetuṁ tathāgato āha,
tesaṃca yo nirodho - evaṁvādī mahāsamaṇo.

Of those phenomena which arise from causes:
Those causes have been taught by the Tathāgata,
And their cessation too - thus proclaims the Great Ascetic.

What timezone are you in? According to Wat Metta and Abhayagiri's calendar today's the day.

:D I was tempted to write something like that to also [sarcastically] show that which day it is doesn't matter, imo. If you're a householder and you can do one day a week, that is very good. If you can do 2 or more per week, even better, but it doesn't matter which days they are.
