# How to create a vector with all dates in a particular year in R?

We know that some years are leap years and some are normal years. The leap years have 366 days and the normal years have 365 days. To create a vector with all dates in a particular year we can use first date and the last date of the year by reading them with as.Date and creating a sequence with seq function. Check out the below examples to understand how it is done.
