From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

March 0 is the day before the first day in March — the last day in February. This formulation may be used in software such as Microsoft Excel as a way of allowing for the variable length of months and leap years.[1]

"March 0" is sometimes used by astronomers as a synonym for the last day of February.[2]
