Happy Hanuka…I Think?

As long as we are gracing the topic of calendars (see previous post) why is it that not one single digital calendar I access shows any holidays?  Not even my favorite by Fantastical.  It must be because app developers wish to remain universally neutral which I guess makes sense but why not build in the option for country holidays or religious holidays to be shown that can be turned on or off at will?  Doesn’t this just make so much sense?  I found an app that will add holidays based on nationality and/or religion to your native phone calendar called US Holidays 2013-2015 but it costs $0.99.  It seems just silly that if I want to figure out when to wear green for the next St. Patty’s Day I either have to Google it or…gasp…find a printed calendar.  By the way have you ever seen a printed calendar that didn’t list most holidays?
