Lesser Known Holidays

This is a list of lesser known holidays. It is constantly growing and open to suggestions.

The goal is to list a lesser known holiday for each day of the year. Some are pretty silly and need to be amended and others need a full description written, but as the list grows it will become more and more complete.

Hey Alan, The iCal function is not working properly. When I load webcal://www.suda.co.uk/projects/holidays/allical.php it says that there are no future updates, but on this page I can see the holidays. Any suggestions?

I just stopped in to see why it wasn't working myself. No idea what to do.

I have temporarily suspended this calendar, it was creating more than 10 Gigabytes in monthly bandwidth. Until I can put some throttling in place, I can't keep it open to the public in its current form.

As a fix for your bandwidth problem, you might point links to a static iCal file, and rework your PHP script into a cron job which updates the static file, then use coral CDN to spread the load, simply by adding '.nyud.net' to the hostname of the link you post here.

When we are creating a calendar and it asks for a URL which one is it? our own website? Thanks

Good news, folks! Brian has agreed to let iCalShare host this calendar, so as of this moment, it's back online. w00t. :)
