How many holidays are there in the world? Most of us would say, ‘Not enough!‘ I share the sentiment even though I don’t celebrate many holidays, but having time off from work is a reward by itself. How can a Mac user find more holidays to celebrate?
The Holidays app.
Simply drop Holidays country listings into Calendar or iCal, and an all day holiday event is added to your calendar. These are not crazy holidays, either. No National Beer Drinking Day, or Whirled Peas Day.
They are legitimate holidays from a few dozen countries, including a variety of religious holidays. Select the ones you want to celebrate and add to your calendar.
You can delete or move the holiday entries to another calendar in iCal. If you’re using iCloud or Google Calendar or other apps that sync with Calendar or iCal, the holidays will travel along.
If you change religions and need to delete all instances of a specific religious holiday, the built-in Holiday Cleaner will check all calendars in iCal or Calendar and delete them.
One thing you find out quickly by using the Holidays app is that the U.S., when compared to many other nations, could use a few more holidays.
