Method One: Use a Calendar

The first method to find how many weeks there are until Thanksgiving is to use a calendar. This method involves a few easy steps.

Step One: Find the Start Date

Begin by identifying the start date on the calendar - you'll need to find both the month and the day.

Step Two: Find the Number of Days Remaining in the Start Month

Beginning with the start month, subtract the day in the start month from the total number of days in that month.

For instance, if the start date is January 7th, and since there are 31 total days in January, there are 31 - 7 = 24 days left in January.

Step Three: Find the Number of Days in the Remaining Months

If there are any remaining full months before Thanksgiving after the start month, then simply add the number of days in each month to the total number of days.

For instance, if the date range is from January 7 to November 28th, then you'll need to add the number of days in the months of February through November to the remaining days in January from step two.

Step Four: Calculate the Number of Days in November

Next, you'll need to find the number of days in November before Thanksgiving. To do this, subtract 1 from 28, which is 27.

Step Five: Calculate the Total Number of Days

The next step is to add up the number of days from steps two, three, and four to calculate the total number of days until Thanksgiving.

Step Six: Calculate the Number of Weeks Until Thanksgiving

The final step is to convert the number of days to weeks to find the number of weeks left until Thanksgiving. To do this, divide the number of days left in the year by 7 to calculate the number of weeks remaining.

Method Two: Use Sheets or Excel

You can also calculate the number of weeks remaining until 11/28 using spreadsheet software such as Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel. You can do this using a few different formulas.

From the Current Date

If you want to find the number of weeks remaining from the current day, you can use the following function in a cell to calculate that number:

=INT((DATE(2024, 11, 28) - TODAY()) / 7)

Note that this formula calculates and displays the number of weeks once you type the formula into a cell and hit Enter.

From Any Date

If you want to find the number of weeks remaining from a specific date listed in another cell, in this case, from a date in cell A1, then you can use the following function to display the number of weeks remaining from the date displayed in cell A1:

=INT((DATE(2024, 11, 28) - A1) / 7)
