I wish to select the holidays I want – and not the Muslim holidays, as I am a gay and I don't choose to honor homophobic Muslim traditions.

Add my name to the list of people who DO NOT WANT Muslim holidays on my phone!!!? Why on earth would an inhumane "religion" that deprives everyone of their rights be of interest to me? How do I get these holidays off my calendar?

When did Eid al-Adha or Ramadan become us holidays….get it off my frickin calendar. This is simply programmed acceptance!

The directions listed above do not follow the iPhone 7. How do I remove all holidays which are not US holidays. I do not consider newly added muslim holidays and such US Holidays and want them off my phone. How do I do this please? I DO NOT WANT THEM ON MY CALENDARS

Remove all nonAmerican holidays from all phones on my account. I do care about Muslim or any other countries holidays. I am USA all the way. Get it off now. Thank you

I hate having these OTHER holidays on my calendar. I guess I will remove the US holiday calendar and add only the ones that I want. I really hate that Microsoft shoves things down our throat. I feel chained to them since I like the iPhone so much.

Click on the Calendar on the bottom center…..on that screen it will say US holidays, subscribed. Uncheck that box. Muslim holidays go away

So Apple has muslim holidays on the U.S. calendar and not Ash Wednesday? WTF Apple? How can I delete these muslim holidays without deleting the whole U.S. calendar?

Btw, 15th of Sha'baan is not a holiday in Saudi Arabia so please if you can turn that off. However you can keep Eids.
Thank you.

Apple, I'm frustrated you force me to recognize muslim holidays on the US calendar. Political correctness is out of control … Please let me decide if I want muslim holidays on my calendar!

Does Apple put Christian Holidays on the Islamic Calendar? I do not want Islamic “holy” days on my US Calendar. Those are NOT holidays in the US. Your bias makes me irate. Libnut Apple!

I’m here for the above. I do NOT want Muslim holidays on my calendar. These are NOT US holidays. Please make a way for these to be removed. I find them very offensive to me!

I too am sickened by your putting Muslim holidays on my calendar. As a Jew by birth, Christian by faith and a patriotic American I want to be able to remove them. I’m sure muslims would want certain holidays removed too. Why can’t we have a choice?
