What Day is a Holiday for a Particular Year?

SUMMARY: Need to know what day a holiday lands on for a particular year? Use the Bing search engine.

To help plan travel or other special events it may prove useful to find out what day a holiday lands on for a particular year. Need to know when Thanksgiving is (USA and Canada) so you can plan a trip over the river and through the woods to grandma's house? Many people travel on the Memorial Day (USA) weekend - find out when it is so you can plan time off from work. Or do you want to ensure you are off for Labor Day (USA), a popular day for picnics?

Just enter the name of the holiday followed by the year into Microsoft's Bing search engine and if the holiday is supported by the service, the first result should be the day.
