Google Calendar - Once per year on the fourth Sunday

Living in a timezone where the clocks are altered during the year gave me an excuse to see how to put a suitable reminder in calendar.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I just saved myself some typing with this screenshot :)


What to avoid:
      Repeats: Yearly

My way:
      Repeats: Monthly         Repeat Every: 12 months
      Repeats by: day of the week

There is a bit on Wikipedia about timezone adjustments relevant to Summer times here.

The above screenshot is from a Cloud service calendar (Google), and similar repetition settings can be achieved in a free software calendar also:


By selecting 'Custom' in Thunderbird calendar, you are able to select 'The Last' - precisely what you need for a reminder set to Last Sunday of March.

Thunderbird is cross platform and available for download at
