  1. Biweekly

    Biweekly may refer to an event that occurs once every two weeks, or twice weekly. There are fifty-two full weeks in a year of twelve months, making for a possible 26 or 104 biweekly events in a year. This is a greater number than if such events were held twice a month, because most months have more than four weeks.
