The Holiday site [] contains a link to [].

Unfortunately the calendars hosted on that site doesn't work with Sunbird 0.3a2+. All you see is the 'There has been an error reading data ...' message.

We should link only to calendars that work with Sunbird/Lightning. 
Otherwise users might get a wrong impression.

Any idea what's wrong with those calendars?  UTF-8? Timezones? or just simple invalid ics?

All of them involve a 302 redirect...

MacBook:~ mwillis$ curl --head
HTTP/1.1 302 Found

Via: 1.1 netcache10 (NetCache NetApp/5.5R6)

The 302 shouldn't cause any problems, but I included it for completeness.
Some of them (such as the Rangers and Maple Leafs calendars) return a 404 at the "final" location.

Others (such as the Sharks) resolve, and are using the wrong mime-type.

We also fail after downloading and importing. From a look at one of the files it is because of the missing VTIMEZONE.

well, at least polish calendar is not valid

each item has daily recurrence (not yearly!)

I opened them and got error which confirms what i wrote:
Error: window.startDate has no properties
Source File: chrome://calendar/content/calendar-recurrence-dialog.js
Line: 86

besides one event starts in 2078, if I try to open it -> Sunbird crash and Feedback Agent is launched - should I report it as separete issue?

eg. SouthAfricaHolidays and seems to be ok
