You should get a lot of responses on this.

US Thanksgiving is always the 4th Thursday in November.

So, the first thing you want to do is find out what day of the week November 1, yyyy, in a 
particular year is. (There are functions for this).  

Then find out how many days later the first Thursday is.  (In 2012, the answer is 0.)  You'll have 
to work this out based on how day-of-week is counted.  

Add that number of days and 21 more to the November 1, yyyy date value.  That will show you the 
date of Thanksgiving in year yyyy.  (For 2012, the correct answer is November 22, 2012.)
