Just wanted to point out that Victoria Day-May 19th- is noticeably absent from the Apple Canadian Holidays Calendar.Oooops!



Just to add a note: for those of you unfortunate enough to use Entourage, there is a way to see holidays there as well. From the file menu select Import, choose import holidays and follow the prompts. You will then have your holidays to look forward to on Bill's product too!
