This is more a historical note then a tip… anyway, this post is about Datetime datatype in SQL (Sql Server and Sybase).
Does anyone knows why it starts with 1753?
It starts with 1753 because the English-speaking world converted from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar in 1752.
To do that, the day after September 2, 1752 was decreed to be September 14, 1752.
Now you know that and when somebody question that, you can make the difference.
