Last Updated Apr 9, 2008 12:00 PM EDT

  1. Switch to the calendar.
  2. Click Tools > Options.
  3. Click the Calendar Options button.
  4. Click the Add Holidays button, then choose one or more countries.
That's all there is to it! Now if only Google would rescue me from Outlook hell with a solid contact manager. Are you there, Google? It's me, Rick.
