Here it's sort of both a holiday we're aware of as much as it is a film, but then again I suppose as we're the nation from whom independence was declared...
Those yankee bastards!!! :lol:

That argument can readily be made of any of the holidays.
My point exactly.

Thinking about it, then, every single one of the entries could need to be translated... hmm, new approach needed methinks.
Why? We can simply store {cal_*} into the database at install time, and then for user-entered names, there's always the (possibly upcoming) 'lang' tag... (Although it means we'd have to parse_bbc_inline the name, ah ah.)

If you're using something like the lang tag, you don't need to translate it, you just store the version with all the languages in the installer. Though that is a problem too, I think the length of the holiday name is rather short.
