    Does anyone know of a free app out there that you can integrate into the calendar to show holidays?

    I use Google calender..you can go in and add a US holidays calendar...I have gsync, so then it syncs all that with my BB calendar...not an app but a good workaround.

    Unless we go to each even (Holiday) and copy it to the our calender? But then that means we would have to go through each one and that would take time. Is there a better way?

    Go into Google Sync. Then BB Menu -> Options -> Scroll to Bottom -> Click on any calender under Sync These Calendars -> Check the US Holidays box.

    Then re-sync.

    ^ beat me to it...works great...

    and to someone who wanted a step by step...this is the Cliff Notes version:

    1. go to Google calendar and into settings
    2. Add on any extra calendars you might want - look under" Browse public calendars"
    3. Once done, save and go to calendar..wait...
    4. On storm, go to http://m.google.com/sync?dc=gsy
    5. download Google sync, run it
    6. Ensure you enter your username and password for your google account whose calendar you want to sync.
    7. Before syncing, click on BB button and from menu, change any settings you might want to (I don't want to sync my contacts).
    8. Sync

    And there you go....

    If you use Outlook and want to sync that to your BB OTA, install the Google sync desktop application and it will basically sync from outlook to your google calendar...and GS on your storm will then sync your Google calendar with your BB one...in other words, your Outlook calendar on your BB.

    Just add the holidays to your Outlook Calendar and when you sync they will carry over
