Have you added holidays to your calendar in Outlook and now you want to remove them? Maybe you added holidays from a country or religion you didn’t mean to add, or you just don’t need to see the holidays on your calendar.

We have previously showed you how to add holidays to your calendar. Now, we’ll show you how to remove them.

If your calendar is not currently active, click the Calendar button on the Navigation bar.

Click the View tab.

In the Current View section, click Change View and select List from the drop-down menu.

If you want to delete one holiday (or just a few holidays), right-click on the holiday to delete and select Delete from the popup menu.

NOTE: No prompt is displayed to confirm your choice to delete one or more holidays, so be sure you want to do this.

If you want to delete all the holidays in your calendar, click Categories in the Arrangement section of the View tab.

All your calendar items are grouped into categories, Holiday being one. Right-click on the Categories: Holiday header and select Delete from the popup menu to delete all holidays from your calendar.

NOTE: No prompt is displayed to confirm your choice to delete all the holidays, so be sure you want to do this.

You can also select all the holidays in the Holiday category just like you would select multiple files in Windows Explorer, using the Shift key. Then, right-click on the selection and select Delete from the popup menu.
