2009 Sri Lankan Holidays List

Year 2008 has almost came to an end. This is the best time to get started to welcome new year. As with last year I created a List of Sri Lankan holidays, which you can add to Outlook, Thunderbird or Google calendar.

Please follow the instructions given in one of my previous posts to add holidays list to Outlook.
Note: If you have last year’s list under Sri Lanka you will need to replace it with this year’s ones

Google Calendar

Just click on the link to add the Holiday Calendar to your Google calendar.


In order to add calendar to Thunderbird you have to have Lightning add-on installed. Follow the instructions given here if you haven't installed Lightning yet.

After installation go to Calendar view. and select Calendar -> New Calendar from main menu. From the Create New Calendar window select >On the Network, click >Next, select >Google Calendar as the format and insert the following URL into the >Location field. http://www.google.com/calendar/ical/trbsm3c2ek1f1l3500qr4muejs%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics
Click >Next, eventually enter your Google >User Name and >Password and click >OK, >Name your calendar, give it a >Color, click >Next and finally >Finish to complete the procedure.

Hope this will help you.....
