Google Calendar last day of month repeat

To create a last day of month event in Google Calendar, create a new file "myevent.ics" with the contents:

Code
BEGIN:VCALENDAR
CALSCALE:GREGORIAN
VERSION:2.0
BEGIN:VEVENT
RRULE:FREQ=MONTHLY;INTERVAL=1;BYSETPOS=-1;BYDAY=SU,MO,TU,WE,TH,FR,SA
SUMMARY:Title here.
DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20160331
SEQUENCE:0
DESCRIPTION:Description here.
END:VEVENT
END:VCALENDAR

Update "SUMMARY:Title here.", "DESCRIPTION:Description here.", and "DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20160331" as needed.

The recurrence rule (RRULE) field with BYSETPOS=-1 causes the event to be the first day of the month less 1 day.

Import into Google Calendar:

Google Calendar warning: "This event has a recurrence rule that cannot be edited in Google Calendar".

  5. Thank you for helping overcome a major nuisance of Google Calendar! Works wonderfully.

  6. How would you edit this to create an event for, say, the day after (US) Thanksgiving, which is the 4th Thursday of November, but where the next day may actually be the 5th Friday?
