I was born may 21 75, little sister oct 29 88, my oldest sister mar 12, 73. Why do our birthdays fall on the same day of the week every year?

The answer is simply because

The amount of days between those days of the year are divisible by 7 (the length of a week or a cycle of "days of the week"), so they will always land on the same day no matter the year. If one of those dates was before February of the same year then it'd change with leap years but that isn't the case.
