In Q++ there are 2 types of holidays : recurring holidays and one-time-dates.

 

Recurring Holidays

(usually simply referred to as holidays)

These are dates that are recurrent (ie. come back, usually, every year). Examples are : Christmas (every year on December 25), Mother's Day (second Sunday in May), Good Friday (2 days before Easter). Usually these dates can be predicted using a recurrence rule, but sometimes the recurrence cannot be predicted and then one would use an arbitrary dates recurrence rule.

One-Time Dates

These are dates that will occur once only. Examples are "300 days before the year 2000" or "Opening of the XXVth Olympics in Atlanta".

 

Both types of holidays are managed from within the Holidays Manager, which is discussed next. Our web site contains a sample database of bank holidays, legal holidays, public holidays and religious holidays in the world, for all 194 countries and 48 semi-autonomous territories of the world.
