Yes, they're not installed because I don't want or need them. I do not 
want to see Greek anywhere near of the installed applications and 
instead prefer the default, built-in English.

It would be logical for the plasmoid to not display holidays if can't 
find the language files it needs. In System Settings / Locale, I've set 
"Greece" in the "Country" drop-down menu (this sets stuff like currency, 
date format, etc, without any problems and no language pack is needed.) 
  Why it still chooses to display USA holidays instead is beyond me. 
Just don't display anything; that would be the correct behavior if the 
language files can't be found.
