Holiday Calendar Wierdness

Jack Clay
Hi All,

I have been subscribed to Apple's US Holidays calendar feed for a long time. I’ve done this on my iMac by checking the Show Holidays Calendar box in the General tab of Calendar preferences. Holidays you would expect show up and are synched to iPad and iPhone through iCloud.

Recently I noticed a ‘holiday’ named Holi on March 2. I thought a family member had started to add something to the calendar until I realized it was coming from the US Holidays calendar. I unsubscribed and resubscribed and it reappeared. Now I’ve noticed a ‘holiday’ named Juneteenth on 6/19.

So, my question is, what they heck is going on with Apples US Holidays calendar? Has it been hacked with spurious ‘holidays’ being added? Any ideas?

Thanks,

Jack Clay

Interesting. I also subscribe to the US holiday calendar, and I’m seeing the same thing...

No, it has been expanded with additional holidays being added:

Juneteenth is a holiday. Per Wikipedia: Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865 announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans throughout the former Confederacy of the southern United States

Holi is: Holi ( /ˈhl/Sanskritहोली Holī) is a Hindu spring festival celebrated in the Indian subcontinent, also known as the "festival of colours".[7][1][8] The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships.

I noticed that, too. But in investigating that I saw that there’s a built-in alert to notify me of those holidays at 9 am one day early. I tried to figure out how to turn that off and I couldn’t find a way. Is there any way to edit the holiday calendar to change the notification?

Formerly, the holiday calendar showed civil holidays and legally important days in the USA as well as major Christian and Jewish holidays. It appears to have been expanded to include more locally observed holidays and holidays from other major world religions such as Hinduism and Islam.

I noticed that both Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples Day are noted in October (at least on the Left Coast) .

Columbus Day is an official US Federal Holiday.
I'm happy to see the calendar include legitimate cultural and religious holidays. But it has always annoyed me by including silly non-holidays like Groundhog Day and April Fools' Day.
