Experts, I have an application that needs to detect the various holidays throughout the year. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, etc. Is there a way to do this with the .NET DateTime class or is there another standard method? Let me know what you experts do :)

Thanks for the tips, links, and advice!

There is not such funtion, I think, Holiday is a relative term.
Nobody in the world celebrates Thanksgiving, with exception of USA.
You can put your desired holiday collection and design your own function:

Something to start:

public class Holiday
{
private static List<DateTime> Holidays = null;
public static void FillHolidays
{

}
public static bool IsDateAHoliday(DateTime date)
{

}
}
