def Startingday(year):
      
    # Creating an object for 1st January of that particular year
    # For that we are passing three argument (1) year (2) month
    # i.e 1 for january (3) date i.e 1 for starting day of 
    # that particular year
    a = datetime.datetime(year, 1, 1)
  
    # for printing Startingday of a particular year 
    # we are using a.strftime("% A")
    print("Starting day of year ", year, " is ", a.strftime("%A"))
