Anyone know why this can be? I've got preferences checked on desktop to show holidays. Kind of like my recent issue with itunes showing paid purchases on laptop but not on desktop. Frustrating! Thanks

On my 10.9.x version of Calendars there is another check box besides the one in Preferences.

There is a button that says "Calendars" right below the stop light buttons in the top left of the Calendar window. Clicking this button reveals a list of my calendars (e.g., work, home, etc.) and a check box for birthdays and holidays. See if that does it.

Sure. This shot is after clicking on the "Calendar" button I referenced.

See it here.

You'll notice the check box for holidays (and birthdays, if you want them).

Thanks Ira, yes of course. Just does not work on desktop. I have an Apple senior tech looking into this too.
