Note that 365 = 1 (mod 7), hence a particular date in a calendar year would be shifted one day ahead in the next year (e.g. Christmas 2015 would fall on a Friday). For leap years, it would be shifted two days ahead since 366 = 2 (mod 7).

Christmas 2015: Friday

Christmas 2016: Sunday ← Leap Year

Christmas 2115: Friday + (number of leap years) × (2 days) + (number of non-leap years) × (1 day) = Friday + 24 × 2 + 75 × 1 = Friday + 5 days (mod 7) = Tuesday
