Org-mode and holidays

Monday 15 November 2010 Emacs, Org

Org-mode has a nice option which allows you to show week-end days in a different color in your agenda. That means that Saturday and Sunday (when I do not work) are fontified with org-agenda-date-weekend.

But there are other days I do not work, like my vacations or holidays.

Therefore, I've wrote a patch to add `org-agenda-day-face-function' which is optionally called to determine what should be the face used to fontify a day. This allows me to use the same face for holidays and for week-end days, like for last Thursday which was an holiday in France.

That patch has been merged in Org last week.
