Holidays is a nice and simple app that lists various types of holidays: career holidays, national and international holidays, special days and more.

Some of the listed holidays are officially recognized by international organizations, while others are not very popular but are still good to know. With each holiday we have included interesting links from Wikipedia or other sources, so you can also learn interesting related facts.

The best thing about this app is its live tile. It is really beautiful and fully customizable. It can show you today's holidays and also allows you to peek at holidays coming soon.

Features:
 - browse holidays by day, week or month
 - 7 holiday categories
 - quickly search for a holiday
 - hide holidays by country and category
 - hide single holidays
 - superb metro-style interface
 - beautiful live tile

Note: holidays in this app were not automatically imported from some source, like they do it in other similar apps. Each holiday was manually selected and processed to make sure it is worth being listed.

    Doesn't even include memorial day. Too many obscure holidays. Ugh.

  • by User 4/5/2014
    Russian holidays are terribly incomplete. The most important holidays are missing: New Year, Victory Day, May 1st, March 8... Please fix, or add a feature to edit.
