Windows 10 comes with its own calendar app built-in as part of Mail & Calendar. This is nice if you don’t care to install Outlook or a third-party calendar app on your PC. To make planning events easier, it also allows you to add holidays from countries from all over the world. Here’s how to add holidays to your Windows 10 Calendar.
Add Holidays to Windows 10 Calendar App
To insert the holidays for your country and others, launch the Calendar app and in the left pane select More Calendars.
Then you’ll be presented with a list of countries to choose the national holidays you want to have added to your calendar.
That’s it! Now all of the major holidays for the country or countries you selected are added throughout the calendar.
If you need to remove a holiday calendar, go back into More Calendars and uncheck the ones you want to remove. If you just need to hide a holiday calendar temporarily, uncheck the ones you don’t need under the Holiday Calendars section in the left pane.
Having the ability to add additional countries is good if you work with people from around the globe. It also helps to know when a holiday is coming up so you can plan your personal schedule, too.
