1. Customize the variable "calendar-holidays" to make sure all the
   missing holidays are there. I personally do this for my local
   Canadian holidays.

2. If you have included diary entries in your agenda view (see the
   variable "org-agenda-include-diary"), then everything will happen
   automatically. If not, add:

| #+CATEGORY: Holiday
| %%(org-calendar-holiday)   ; special function for holiday names

   to one of your agenda files. Please see section 10.3.1 of the
   org-mode manual for details.

for some of the brain-damages of minix.
