Hindu Holiday Calendar (2012 – 2017)

I missed Diwali this year so I hunted around the internet looking for an .ics or .vcs file that I could import into my Outlook calendar. I couldn’t find any and the default holiday tool that comes with Outlook 2007 doesn’t include any Hindu holidays either. So, I made one for 2008 – 2009 (based on the dates from here) if you want to download it. It includes most of the major celebrations:

Update (7/23/2012): I’ve updated the festival calendar from Jul 2012 – Dec 2017. Download the ICS file here: hindu-festivals-2017.ics

    Thank you! This is what I’ve been looking for! I previously downloaded an Indian holiday calendar and it didn’t even include Diwali or Navratri! Could you make Navratri as holiday for the entire 9 days? Also include Karva Chauth?
