Holidays from different countries in iCal!

One of the thing that bothered me the most with iCal at first is that the holidays are not written. Of course I understood the complexity since it varies all over the world. It wasn't a big issue but I still found it annoying. Well, it looks like Apple had already planned it from the beginning with holiday calendars that you can subscribe to on the web. The mistake Apple did with this is not asking the first time you open iCal if you want to subscribe to a "calendar feed". The easy way to get the holidays calendar is to click here to go to the Apple website. On this other Apple page, there are also sports and entertainment calendars that you can add to iCal! On the Apple page, you just click on the calendar you want to add and it will launch iCal automatically.

Unfortunately on the sports page, iCal still lists the expos and not the Nats. Hook a fan up.

I'm a Unitarian-Universalist and would love to have Wiccan and Buddhist holidays as well.

Thanks for being so considerate!
