(remove space line between 2010 and 2011 holidays)

Date to be confirmed.
All full moon poya days to be confirmed for 2010.
(a) Poya holidays are observed on the day of each full moon. In general, Hindu and Buddhist festivals are declared according to local astronomical observations and it is often only possible to forecast the approximate time of their occurrence.

(b) Some public holidays are followed by an additional holiday for banks only.

(c) Muslim festivals are timed according to local sightings of various phases of the moon and the dates given above are approximations. During the lunar month of Ramadan that precedes Eid al-Fitr, Muslims fast during the day and feast at night and normal business patterns may be interrupted; however, since Sri Lanka is not a predominantly Muslim country restrictions (which travellers may experience elsewhere) are unlikely to cause problems.

    I took the liberty of adjusting the holidays and making the code. I have also included the Bank, Public and Mercantile holiday codes. Once on Outlook you can Sync the calendar to your phone or gmail calendar and then on to your Android device.

    Please feel free to email me and let me know if you find any errors.
