Is it possible to tell if the date is a holiday? I looked through the api for calendar (we're on 1.3.1 btw) and I didn't see anything that looked like it would return that.

Java does not provide this functionality automatically. It will require some work on your part. Check out JavaWorld's Tips 'N Tricks Java Tip 44: Calculating holidays and their observances for some more info.

here's one I was working on some time ago (I'm not from the US so I'm not entirely sure I have the parameters of the holidays correct)
easter calculation is close, but is incorrect (this is when I stopped), you might be able to add a tweak or two, to get it right.
