How to Make iOS Devices Display Holidays You Celebrate in Calendar?

view holidays iosPeople are used to the fact their favorite iOS devices usually display the entire list of upcoming holidays. However, some of the well-known dates disappear from iPhone calendars all of a sudden. It may ruin user’s plans unless he or she knows how to deal with it.

For instance, one of the users recently reported about the inability to see Easter. While some iPhone owners would like to plan their holidays in beforehand, they get annoyed by the fact they cannot see the exact date of some events.

Apple’s Explanation

The company has explained that it decided to divide the holidays into separate categories. It excluded the religious holidays from the default calendar. It was done to avoid conflicts among different religious groups living in the United States and the rest of the world, not vice versa. However, it does not mean an iPhone owner cannot set up certain dates to be displayed on his own. Based on the personal religious beliefs, one may set up the calendar from zero. It is possible to customize it the way you like based on your day-off. You may use this religious calendar to help you come up with the significant dates.

You may look at one more US calendar that involves Christian holidays (taking into account you do not talk about Eastern Rite holidays – they are different from the Roman ones).
