Yes, having Christmas fall on a Sunday, a day associated with Christian religious observations, does seem special — and it should be.
But, Christmas falling on a Sunday is NOT that rate.
We might NOT remember but it actually happened in 2011 & 2005. So that is 3 times in 12 years. That is, however, always not the case.
From 1900 to 1999 Christmas fell on a Sunday: 1904, 1910, 1921, 1927, 1932, 1938, 1949, 1955, 1966, 1983 & 1994.
From 2000 to 2099 Christmas fell or will fall on a Sunday: 2005, 2011, 2016, 2022, 2033, 2039, 2044, 2050, 2061, 2067, 2072, 2078, 2089 & 2095.
If you look at those years you will notice, if you study them, that there is both a 11-year and 6-year repeat cycle, in there. The 11-year repeat cycle is very common for anniversaries like this.
So most of us should enjoy 10 to 12 (and maybe more) Christmases on Sundays during a typical lifetime.
Enjoy. Merry Christmas.

Having read a post earlier this morning I was curious to check my actual shutter actuations on my Sony a6000.
The file name sequence number, e.g., DSC00001, does not necessarily correspond to the actual shutter actuations because that name/number can be reset.
The way to get the shutter actuations is to read the so called ‘EXIF’ data that the camera stores with each image taken.
However, inexplicably MOST of the popular ‘Shutter Count’ checkers, such as “Camera Shutter Count“, does not support the Sony a6000! I don’t know why. It even appears that Sony’s own EXIF reader does not show the shutter actuations for the a6000.
But, this ONLINE tool claims it does and did give me a reading.
