Outlook: Add Regional Holidays to your Calendar

Someone recently was talking to me about their calendar in Microsoft Outlook, and pointed out that "it sure is annoying that it only shows American holidays". I was happy to tell her how she can get Canadian holidays (or holidays from just about anywhere else) on her calendar without manually entering them all, and I figured I'd make a post here to tell everyone else how easy it is too!

First, go to 'File', and then choose 'Options'. On the list to the left of the Outlook Options window which will pop up, choose 'Calendar'. Now look for the 'Calendar options' heading. Under this, click the 'Add Holidays...' button. A dialog box will appear, allowing you to choose one or more locations. When you click 'OK', holidays will be imported into your calendar. It's that simple!
