Fact Check

The claim is False.

NewsMeter began its investigation by exploring the calendar of the year 2022. During our investigation, we found that January I (01-01-2022) did not fall on Friday but on Saturday.

Similarly, February 2 (02-02-2022) does not fall on Friday but on Wednesday.

From the above screenshot of the 2022 calendar, only the date and month of September i.e 09-09-2022, and November i.e 11-11-2022 will be falling on Friday.

Apart from this, we also searched on the internet if over the past years there have been any year that had the date and month with same numerical falling on the same day. However, we did not find any information on it either.

Hence, it is evident that the claim made through the viral message is False. Apart from September and November, the other dates and months with similar numerical do not fall on Friday in 2022.
