If you're using the default calendar, open the calendar, touch More in the upper right, then touch Manage calendars, then turn on Holidays in the United States.
I don't have that option to turn on Holidays in the United States. I just all my calendars in a list and whether I want them turned on or off.
In the upper right hand corner there is 3 dots click on it and there should be an option that says manage calendars. Click on it and there should be an option that shows holidays in United States.
Hello. Thanks, i have the manage calendars option, but no option to turn on holidays. Seriously. If i could do a screen print, i would. And you could see that. Lol. What the heck? I suppose i need to take it to a store..??..
I know my smart phone got a little bit less smart with the last two updates.
Thank you very much for the suggestions.
I just noticed that the screen comes up after I click manage calendars it has different calendars listed one say my phone, Google (my email address) and Samsung account. Maybe you would need to allow Google to access your calendar.
We know how it feels when an update to a phone makes some unwanted changes, ntrdm72. We appreciate you trying the steps suggested in this thread. I took the liberty of going on Google to see if anyone else had other suggestions. There was one who suggested turning off all the sync options in your calendar settings, restarting the phone, then turning on the sync options again. When they did that, the option to add US Holidays appeared in their GMail list. Please keep us posted about this suggested step to get the holidays on your calendar.

Have you tried signing into your Google calendar on a computer and navigate to the Calendar and added the holidays to it and let that sync with your phone? That's how I added it to my calendar years ago.
