    Dating Yourself

    September 10, 1999

    I have enough trouble remembering my own holiday schedule, not to mention everyone else's (don't ask me when Easter is next year, let alone Purim or Ramadan). Helpfully, the Holidays on the Net site provides a comprehensive calendar of days off in the United States, along with capsule descriptions of major dates and religious holidays. Try to overlook the blinking logo and the loud colors. For holidays abroad, skip that site in favor of http://www.holidayfestival.com; there, you'll find a list of official holidays, sorted by country, plus occasionally useful links to other sites. The site shows refreshing honesty with an "Accuracy" page detailing how current the information is for each country and what might be wrong in the site's database.
