Overview

Extending Ruby's Date class with the Holidays gem

The Holidays gem automatically extends Ruby's Date class and gives you access to three new methods: holiday?, #holidays and #calculate_mday.

Examples

Lookup Canada Day in the :ca region

Date.civil(2008,7,1).holiday?(:ca)
=> true

Lookup Canada Day in the :fr region

Date.civil(2008,7,1).holiday?(:fr)
=> false

Lookup holidays on North America in January 1.

Date.civil(2008,1,1).holidays(:ca, :mx, :us, :informal, :observed)
=> [{:name => 'New Year\'s Day'...}]
