The Q++Studio Worldwide Public Holidays Database
The Q++ Worldwide Public Holidays Database contains the worldwide bank and public holidays for all 197 countries and 48 semi-autonomous territories of the world, and is included in the Q++Samples folder of the holidays manager.
This database is made up of recurrence rules (such as: Good Friday = 2 days before Easter) so that, in principle, you could use the current database, and Q++Studio, to immediately calculate world holidays for the next 100 or even 200 years.
