Default Calendar Holidays

Please Login to Remove!

I use the google calendar wireless sync to my BB, I can't seem to figure out how to get the US holidays to appear on my BB. Anyone know how to do this? I use to be on a BES and didn't have this issue.

About half way down on the left under my calanders click on settings. Under other calanders you will see US holidays. Click it. Hope this helps.

@Piano Man, are you talking the calendar on the google site? If so the holidays are already showing on the google calendar but they won't wireless sync over to my BB.

It won't sync, as its technically another calendar.
It will only sync your main calendar.

When creating a calendar in google, the main calendar is usually under your email address, or name. This is the main calendar in google calendar.

Ok found the settings fine online at the google calendar, now under that calendar there isn't an option to "add holidays", but right below that is "other calendars" which has settings to add or remove holidays?? Still SMH on this, why does the google calendar show the holidays online but they won't sync over to my BB??

Because google sync will only sync ONE calendar.
the US Holidays calendar is a secondary calendar.

The option to "aad/remove holidays" is to see/not see that calendar in google calendar. google calendar is a collective for all individual calendars shown on the left hand side.

Oh well I wasn't able to get the holidays over to my BB since I don't have or use Outlook. Time to start typing them in manually, it won't take that long. Thanks all for the advice.
