I feel there isn't a native way to populate holidays in calendar while we create a new mailbox. But there are lot of workarounds and scripts to get this done. Following article discusses about one of such option. It is a bit lengthy process, but once you have it setup, you can populate holidays for every new user with a single line of PowerShell command.

This option requires a blank mailbox be created and populated with the holidays thru Outlook. The we need to export the calendar of this mailbox to a PST File. This PST File will only contain holiday entries for calendar folder and this can be used to import holidays to any user's mailbox.

Following is the article.
