Characteristics of the weeks according to the ISO 8601 standard

A week starts on a Monday and ends on a Sunday.
For the first days of the year:
• Week #1 is the week that contains the first Thursday of the year.
• Week #1 is the first week that contains most of its days (at least 4 days) in the year. It systematically contains the 4th of January. It systematically contains the first working day of the year, considering that the 1st of January, the Saturdays and the Sundays are non-working days. It is the one whose Monday is nearest to the New Year's Day. It starts between the 29th of December and the 4th of January.
• The last week of the year (52 or 53) is the week that contains the last Thursday of the year. It is the last week to have most of its days (at least 4) in the year and it systematically contains the 28th of December. It is the one whose Sunday is nearest to the 31st of December. It ends between the 28th of December and the 3rd of January.
• There is no week zero (the week #1 of a year immediately follows the last week of the previous year).
• The first days of week #1 may be included at the end of December of the previous year. Similarly, the last days of the last week (52 or 53) of a year can appear at the beginning of the next year. A year always contains 52 or 53 weeks.
