From "01/01/1900" to "monday". How???

Given a date, how can I work out the day of the week?
Since I'm in England and we do dates as dd/mm/yy, I want to enter a date, for example 15/04/1976 and the function to return a value for Thursday (which was the day of the week for 15/04/1976 if I remember). The way I'm thinking would probably work but it would be so long that it would just be dumb to use. No grace or finesse. Come on, astound me.
I think this could be hard so there's 200 points riding on it!
