  1. Look up the current date and count to the nearest 25th

    Begin by knowing the current date. Count how many days are between that date and the next 25th of a month. For example, if today is Sept. 19, there are 6 days to Sept. 25.

  2. Determine how many days are in the months between the next 25th and Christmas

    If the closest 25th is Sept. 25, there are three months until Christmas, but those three months equal 91 days, because September and November each have thirty days.

  3. Add together the days

    Add the number of days between the current date and the next 25th of the month to the number of days in the months leading to Christmas. For example, the days until Christmas from Sept. 19 is 97.
