I appreciate this calendar, but you have included Ugadi/Gudi Padwa, Pongal, and Onam, even several non-Hindu/secular holidays yet there's no Chhath Puja (a festival with roots from the Vedic age).

I would be happy to provide a wonderful HINDU calendar from the Panchang🙏
@SuhagAShukla A large part of the Hindu diaspora from countries like Fiji, Guyana and Trinidad have roots from Bihar and Eastern UP where Chhath is celebrated. And Bihari Hindu Americans like me celebrate it. It's unfortunate that it's not included.
In addition to Chhath Puja, I believe there are also beautiful Hindu festivals from Rajasthan that could be included - such as Gangaur. It would make much more sense to include those over secular Indian, Buddhist, and Sikh ones.
