Default Regionalism

It is no surprise that S&F has servers around the world, but what about holiday recognitions for the region our servers are supposed to serve? We have had some holidays, such as Whitsun, which is a completely foreign holiday for us. As Leander said here, the servers all get the German holidays, but there are a number of US holidays that are still ignored. This isn't to mention several important Canadian holidays that folks want to have celebrations for either. This complaint happened here too.

With servers based in a variety of countries with many holidays overlooked, how hard would it be to look at a calendar for each country(s) that each server targets and pick dates to celebrate at fairly constant intervals? If they really need help finding holidays, how about some game centered ones too, such as the anniversary of the comic or the anniversary of the first server for that country?

I'm all for personalizing the experience of each country to show that each country is thought of. Once a schedule is setup, they don't even have to change it. One year's worth of holidays and artwork can just be used the next one too.

It is not an issue of finding holidays, many of the CoMas tend to be local to their region. Mainly, it is about getting appropriate art made for the festivities. It seems slow because the art department works on every region at once.
