in reply to dates and holidays

Maybe you could give Date::Manip a try.

The following code
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Date::Manip; Date_Init("ConfigFile=/tmp/Manip.cnf"); my $name1 = Date_IsHoliday( '2010-02-15'); print "$name1\n";
would print

Washington's Birthday

"out of the box", and the holidays to remember are easily configurable for your own needs.
Just take care to copy Manip.cnf from the test suite within the installation bundle to a convenient place.
