Steps to reproduce:

Some countries have de facto holidays (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search?search=De%20facto%20holiday&go=Go&ns0=1) and I think de facto holidays should be distinguished from public holidays (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1236747).

I visited Preferences -> Calendar -> Categories but could not find "De facto holiday" and it's not listed under "Category" for new events.

Actual results:

Could not find "De facto holiday".

Expected results:

Please add "De facto holiday" as a new calendar category.

You should be able to do that yourself by clicking the New button.

Preferences > Calendar > Categories.

I used my test profile to make sure it worked. It even has a color!

Thanks but I want "De facto holiday" added to the Lightning category list.

That is what I did, not spelled exactly that way.

Not understanding why you want the developers to do the work for you when you can add it yourself, but I'll reopen the bug.

It's needed for people who wish to develop calendars as I've already explained.

Categories aren't Calendars.

There is only the default Home calendar in the Calendar List.

Here is how you create new calendars.

Categories aren't Calendars.

Calendars are made of events, we need the new event category to make calendars. I don't have time to discuss this further.

So why don't you create the category using the "New" button?

Yes Events are added to calendars.

Categories assign a category to that event.

For example, I created a Bills calendar on my computer where I create events for bill payments and add them to that calendar.

I don't use categories at all.

If you need one for a certain calendar then create it using the "New" button.

Feel free to reply when you have time.

Feel free to reply when you have time.

I said "I don't have time to discuss this further."

Well, then why did you file the bug report?

I'm trying to understand why you can't add the category yourself and don't understand what it is you want the developers to do, so I'm trying to assist in that determination.

You just ruined my day.

Sorry that you don't want to answer a simple question and for spending good amount of my day trying to understand what it is you want and trying to assist you.

I'll remove myself from the CC: list and hope that brightens your day.

Thank you, and I also want to thank you for some of your earlier work on the issues.

Nominating WONTFIX. Every Lightning localization ships its own list of default categories. Users already can define there own categories. I don't see any use in adding just another random category.

What? Please explain more about this.

The list of categories that is initialized when you install Lightning the very first time dependents on the language of Thunderbird: https://dxr.mozilla.org/l10n-central/search?q=categories2&redirect=false

It's not a random category, some working places require employees to work at de facto holidays. See the blocked bug for more information.

Thanks. "De facto holidays" can be translated and added to several countries. Example, "De facto helgdag" for Sweden.

Hi, I'm not sure this bug is all that helpful at this point. I'd ask folks to pause this conversation while I get some feedback on what the right way forward is here.

I'm looking at the block bug on this as well: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1236747
