What Is Holi and Other Days On Apple's US Holidays Calendar?

Today is Holi, the Hindu Spring festival. It is one of many cultural and religious holidays included on Apple's default US Holidays calendar. Not everyone in the US celebrates all of the days on the US Calendar. Looking up the holidays you are unfamiliar with is an opportunity to learn about other holidays and cultures.

    Gary, You didn’t answer what is probably a common question… Can I easily edit the supplied calendar to delete holidays I don’t want cluttering my calendar?

    R Douglass: No. That is a calendar that you are subscribed to, not one of your own. So you can’t edit it. If you want a different set of holidays, you can search for and subscribe to another calendar or build your own from scratch.

    First of all, thank you for your comment on learning other cultures’ holidays and traditions. Being a tried & true Catholic, I have always been fascinated with other religions and their traditions. I believe that’s what helps us all to understand and respect each other. For a little laugh, I though that Apple just forgot to add the rest of Holiday onto Holi! Kudos for the information and to Apple for teaching us that concept. Just had to add my 2 cents for what it’s worth….

    Totally agree with Diana on both points: (1) Thanks for the encouragement to learn about other cultures; and (2) I thought “Holi” was a typo. :-) So thanks for this post, Gary; now I know to be a little more curious when I see something on this calendar I don’t recognize and learn something by looking it up.

    My wife and I have been baffled for an extended period of time by “Holi”. Your inquisitive and far-reaching mind
    has enlightened us once again. Thank you.

    Holi – a festival that would allow, even encourage, ‘kids to be kids’ and go play outside with all kinds of dry and wet colors with friends for a few hours… a perfect welcome to spring :) Enjoy!

    Gave up on trying to delete it several days ago.
    I should have thought outside of the box and researched it.

    Just tweeted your link.

    Thanks

    Thank you so much for tackling this topic. I had no idea what “Holi” was or how to solve the problem.
