### Why doesn't the same date fall on the same day of the week every year?

This is because there are 365 days in a year. This number is not
evenly divisible by 7 thus the same date will fall on the
consecutive day of the week in the coming year. If however the
upcoming year is a leap year the same date will fall 2 days after
in the week.(e.g. If your birthday is on a Sunday one year the
following year it will fall on a monday or if the upcoming year is
a leap year it will be on a Tuesday.

### Why does your b-day fall on a different day of the week every day?

Because a year has 365 days (or 366 in a leap year) and a week
has 7 days. 7 does not divide into 365 or 366.
The remainder of 1 in a non-leap year means that your birthday
will be one day of the week later if there has not been a leap day
since your previous b-day. A remainder of 2 in a leap year means
that your birthday will be two days of the week later if there has
been a leap day since your previous b-day.
The reason for using leap days instead of leap years in the last
paragraph is that birthdays that fall before the leap day (1
January-28 February) are affected by leap years in the PREVIOUS
year.
