Using the new %this year% and %this_easter% placeholders introduced with T(-) Countdown Control version 1.8.0, it’s easy to calculate holidays such as labor day like so:

Launch Strtotime: september %this_year% first monday
Wk.

As of version 1.8.2, using these shortcodes will automatically recalculate for next year’s date after the holiday has past. Holidays should be set as recurring ‘Yearly’ and they will automatically be rescheduled for next year.

Other Holidays can be calculated in the same manner:

  • New Years: first day of january %this_year%
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Day: january %this_year% third monday
  • President’s Day: february %this_year% third monday
  • Easter: %this_easter%
  • Ascension Day: %this_easter% + 40 days
  • Pentecost: %this_easter% + 50 days
  • Memorial Day: last monday of may
  • Independence Day: july 4 %this_year%
  • Labor Day: september %this_year% first monday
  • Columbus Day: october %this_year% second monday
  • Veteran’s Day: november 11 %this_year%
  • Thanksgiving Day: november %this_year% fourth thursday
  • Christmas Day: december 25 %this_year%
