... And another increment.

It apparently has a limit to the number of holidays that will be shown.  
So if you enable a whole bunch of regions, it'll normally only show the 
selected day or perhaps a day or two ahead, until there's like three 
listings, then it won't list any more days.

Too bad.  I had the idea to enable nearly all of them so I could learn 
about the holidays of different cultures (at least for the Latin/Roman 
Alphabet, Russian and Chinese look really cool, but don't help me know 
what to wikisearch/google, but for instance Spanish and French are at 
least searchable since they're Latin alphabet), getting them in one big 
scrolling list.  But it just cuts down on the number of days displayed, 
then.  (Tho I /think//hope/ it'd display all holidays for the currently 
selected day, at least, even if there's like 20 of them.)
