Choose and display feasts and holidays.

Celebrations and public holidays often depend on the country of residence, for example:
- The national holiday is specific to each country.
- Labor Day is celebrated on May 1st in France and Belgium, and the first Monday in September in Canada. In Switzerland, it is not unemployed in all cantons.
- Certain religious holidays, for example Good Friday, Easter Monday, Pentecost Monday, or the day after Christmas, are celebrated differently in each French-speaking country. 
- The dates of Mother's Day and Father's Day depend on the customs of the country: for example, in France, Mother's Day takes place on the last Sunday in May, unless it is Pentecost, on which Mother's Day is celebrated on the first Sunday in June.  
 - Finally, certain holidays are linked to the user's profession, family situation or religion.

The management of festivals and public holidays must therefore be left to the users' initiative. To facilitate this management, you have a function of adding a festival or a public holiday on a specific date.
