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.

You can work it out yourself - each date in the calendar repeats every 11 years. So - since the fourth Thursday in November this is the 24th - then the same date will be on the same day in 2022, 2033 & 2044. I'll leave you to do the rest !

Why is Easter a movable date?

Easter is always on a Sunday. Sundays fall on different dates every year. There is no way for there to be an exact date for Easter because it has to be on a specific day of the week. The same thing happens with Thanksgiving.
