Abstract: A display method operative within a display device of a data processing system connected in a distributed computing environment having nodes located across geographically-dispersed boundaries. The method begins by defining a set of holiday objects corresponding to a set of holidays specific to a given locale. The calendar, together with at least one holiday defined by at least one of the set of holiday objects, are then selectively displayed if the data processing system is operative within the given locale. Preferably, a given holiday object is defined according to an object-oriented class construct to facilitate implementation of the inventive holiday display calendar using local object-oriented resources.
