Holiday lists can be used in recurrent events and the shortcode [eme_calendar].

A list of holidays is a list of dates or range of dates (one per line) in one of the following formats:

  • YYYY-MM-DD–YYYY-MM-DD (this indicates a range of days)

Next to that, you can specify the holiday name, extra calendar CSS class and a link to another (optional external) page explaining the holiday. The format:

  • YYYY-MM-DD, holiday name
  • YYYY-MM-DD–YYYY-MM-DD, holiday name
  • YYYY-MM-DD, holiday name, calendar CSS class
  • YYYY-MM-DD–YYYY-MM-DD, holiday name, calendar CSS class, URL

When used for recurrent events, selecting a holiday list prevents recurring events being created on those days.
When used in the calendar shortcode, a holiday list can show the holiday info in the calendar if the format contains at least the holiday name. If also a CSS class is provided, that class is used to show the holiday in the calendar, otherwise ’eme-cal-holidays’ is used as CSS class.
If an URL is specified, clicking on the holiday will go to that page.
