Adding Holidays

There are a few ways to add holidays to your calendar. 

      The best way to add holidays is from the home page and click 'Holidays.'  From there, you can manually select the holidays from the library of pre-set holidays. Choose the holidays that you want to display, click ‘Save’, and your calendar is populated. 

     If you cannot find the holiday on the list you can always add a customized holiday.

    To do this, add an all-day event on the date of the holiday. For example, to add Thanksgiving to the calendar, click the add "Event" link on the date of Thanksgiving. Then type "Thanksgiving Day" for the event title and check the "All day event" box next to the time. Click “Save Changes” and you're finished.

Choosing Colors & Fonts

 "Calendar Colors & Fonts" link allows you to edit your display options, including the grid color, grid font colors and the fonts and colors for your events!

Be careful to not choose the same color for the header and font!  If they are the same, the days of the week lettering will not be visible!
