Don't forget the holidays anymore

A typical German doesn't have to look for to find out the official holidays in Germany. For someone who is not used to Germany yet, it would be good to have them on your calender and automatically updated every year.

If you are using an iCalender based email client like iCal, Thunderbird etc. simply create a new calender subscribing to the calender from Apple at webcal://ical.mac.com/ical/German32Holidays.ics. Now all German holidays would be available on your calender with English names and the German equivalent for them. 

It is not necessary that these are really holidays in your state. To create a customised holiday list (Gesetzliche nach Bundesländern) visit erweiterungen.deProject24.info or Feiertage.
