Holiday object

getHolidays() as well as a matching isHoliday() call return either a list or a single holiday object which consists of:

  • {String} date - ISO Date String of (start)-date in local format
  • {Date} start - start date of holiday
  • {Date} end - end date of holiday
  • {String} name - name of holiday using language (if available)
  • {String} type - type of holiday public|bank|school|optional|observance
  • {Boolean} substitute - (optional) if true holiday substitutes another holiday`
  • {String} note - (optional) note`

Dates

The date String represents the start date of the holiday in ISO format without timezone. This string it intended for information only.

start and end are the start/end date of the holiday within the selected timezone of the country, state, region.

Name

The name names the holiday in the local language of the selected country, state, region. The applied language(s) can be requested using getLanguages().

The language can be changed using the setLanguages() method. In case that not translation is available a fall-back to the next given language will be made. E.g. local language is "fr", setLanguages('nl') was called. For all holidays where no dutch translation is available the French version will be used instead.

All holiday names should support an English translation.

Types of holidays
