Seems there's a bug (or is it a feature?), tho.  If I switch to other 
months, it shows the holidays on the right.  But July (well, probably the 
current month, no, can't be as July, 2012 has the same behavior), 
doesn't, at least for the US, which was the only one that was active by 
default.  So the right side was blank despite there being holidays.  But 
I just added, for instance, Argentina (top of the list so convenient to 
add for a test), and it shows one day there (the 20th, so it's not the 
current day), but not the others. unless I hover directly over them -- it 
doesn't show the whole list.

But for other months, unless I'm hovering over a specific day, it shows 
the whole list of them for the month.

Oh, just figured it out!  It IS a feature (and it's not the whole month 
after all)!  It only shows dates *AFTER* the currently selected day, the 
current day of the month if you haven't clicked any.  And in the US, 
there's nothing after July 4 in July.  Adding Argentina, I get one on the 
20th, so it's shown, but no others, unless I click something early enough 
in the month to show July 4 (US) and July 9 (Argentina).

IIRC, at one point those showed up, but as tooltips if you hovered over a 
marked day, only.  Now they show in the area to the right, instead, 
allowing more to be listed, if there's more in the displayed month or 
early enough in the next month to be displayed, of course.

Anyway, that there happened to be no holidays displayed for the US after 
the 13th is why it appeared blank, here.  Had there been, I'd have seen 
them and could have told you what the functionality of the right side was.
