    1.) Click More Calendars
    2.) Select the Calendars you'd like to add
    3.) The added Calendars will be shown under Holiday Calendars

    Is this new? I can't remember seeing that before.

    When I tried a month or so ago, I can only remember seeing Settings > Calendar Settings > Add Holidays (which was just a hyperlink to Office.com, with instructions that don't apply to outlook.com).

    Anyway, thanks for the info.

    Edit: Can confirm this is new (the part with being able to add multiple country calendars) as it's only present in the calendar app on one PC, not another that hasn't updated for a while. It seems it was introduced at the same time that 'Year View' at the top was introduced. Not on Windows 10 Mobile or Outlook.com yet.

    Edit 2: Be warned though, just like everything coming out of Microsoft now-a-days, it's buggy. I added a second country calendar, but the entries later disappeared from the calendar for reasons unknown. So, I removed the calendar by unticking the country and re-added it again by re-ticking the country. Now there are two calendars for the same country with no way to delete the original one. Great. And because it's a built-in store app not just a win32 application, re-installing the calendar app is a PITA.

    You can also subscribe to calendars through outlook.com on the web (Go to > calendar > import). These will then show up in the Calendar app assuming you use a MS account.

    You can install (or subscribe to) them or any others as described here. Import or subscribe to a calendar in Outlook.com

    The ones Microsoft recommend (via iCalShare) are a bit out of date but if you want to add NASA launch schedules, birthdays of anime characters, or malasian school holdays in 2006 their link might be interesting.

    I subscribed to the seasons of the moon one to see if it works and almost daily I get pop-ups saying it is last quarter wolf moon rising in Sagittarius or some such thing. Full moon on Monday if you are interested...
