Default How to get holidays in calendar?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to automatically have standard holidays (Christmas, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, Easter, etc) show up in the calendar? Or anything other than entering them manually?

If you use Outlook, 2003 in my case go to Tool, Option, Calendar and there should be an option to add holidays.

^^ That's how I've done it, and it works well. Obviously you need BES for this option to work...

Not quite true. You can add the holidays in Outlook and sync them via USB or BT (OS 4.1)

Thanks for the clarification. I was refering to the majority of folks out there without 4.1.

Even before 4.1 this was a viable option for non-BES users. I believe 4.1 simply allowed users to expand to synchronization via Bluetooth (may be wrong but I don't think so). As long as it's on the desktop Outlook, it will appear on the mobile when synched.

finch great post.

Whats neater, is for people from other countries that also want to keep track of their Home Country holidays can do so by just clicking on their respective countries.

It never ceases to amaze me how you learn something every day coming here.

I chose the option in Outlook 2003's Calendar Options. Seeing that I do a lot of business with both the US and Canada, I chose both holiday options, hoping it would consolidate shared holidays. Unfortunately it didn't do this, so I went back to try to remove it, however if no options are selected, it disables the OK button. A co-worker told me to try to reselect the options (Canada and USA) and click OK again, thinking it may be a reverse selection. Now I'm stuck with 4 events on each holiday (ie: New Year's Eve Canada x2 & New Years Ever USA x2).

I was going to delete the events manually, but it cycles throughout the years and not just 2006.

Any idea how to undo this? It makes my schedule incredibly cluttered and is unsightly to even look at.

Any help would be appreciated!
