User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20061201 Firefox/2.0.0.4 (Ubuntu-feisty)
Build Identifier: lightning 0.5

In Pcal you can define certain dates by just adding a name. For example

<pre_defined_event>
	

:= ‘‘Christmas’’, ‘‘Thanksgiving’’, ‘‘Easter’’, ‘‘Good_Friday’’, ‘‘GEaster’’ (Orthodox Easter), ‘‘Gstgeorge’’ (Orthodox holiday), ‘‘Gmarcus’’ (Orthodox holiday), and ‘‘F13’’ (Friday the 13th, for the superstitious among us).

The code of PCAL then finds the date depending on the year. This is excellent for those movable dates such as Easter, or Ramadan, or Jewish New Year

It would be nice to see this in Calendar in some way.

In my opinion this is not a necessary feature for a calendar client. As the reporter said there already exists a program to create this holiday calendars and we also offer some holiday calendars on our website.

I'd said a suitable solution would be an extension.

This feature is way too geeky for our target audience. I agree that this would be a great extension, but this is not suitable for inclusion into the mainline product.

Whist PCAL does produce calendars, they are only for printing, or use as HTML. PCAL does not provide the PIM features that Calendar does.
