Time for a Holiday

Time for a Holiday

Yes, I know the holidays are over, but we’re going to visit the MS Outlook calendar feature once again and today’s question is: Does your calendar contain holidays?


What’s a calendar without the holidays?

To add them, you’ll need to go to the Tools menu, Options choice.

Next, we’re looking for the Calendar section. Click the Calendar Options button.

When the Calendar Options window opens, you’re looking for the Add Holidays button in the middle.

Click it.

You’ll be presented with a list of available holiday sets.

Select all the sets you want to add and click OK.

Outlook will then import the dates to your calendar. When it’s done, click OK to go back out to Outlook and voila!

Now you can consider your calendar complete!

P.S. – I found that my version of Outlook XP only had holidays available through 2005, which is obviously not very useful at this point in time. So, I went to Microsoft’s download center and entered “calendar updates” as my search criteria. You’ll then have to choose, download and install the update that is for your Outlook version. After completing the download, I was able to install holidays and now I’m good until 2012!
