Description: ------------ excerpt from the Austria.php file: /** * 1. Advent */ $firstAdv = $this->_calcFirstMonday(12); $firstAdv = $firstAdv->getPrevDay(); $this->_addHoliday('firstAdvent', $firstAdv, '1. Advent'); /** * 2. Advent */ $secondAdv = $this->_addDays($firstAdv, 7); $this->_addHoliday('secondAdvent', $secondAdv, '2. Advent'); /** * 3. Advent */ $thirdAdv = $this->_addDays($firstAdv, 14); $this->_addHoliday('thirdAdvent', $thirdAdv, '3. Advent'); /** * 4. Advent */ $fourthAdv = $this->_addDays($firstAdv, 21); $this->_addHoliday('fourthAdvent', $fourthAdv, '4. Advent'); however, this year it calculates Dec. 25th as the 4rth advent, which is not possible, the latest date for the 4rth advent is Dec. 24rth ( in which case it is not celebrated, and should not be shown ) the correct way of implementing this would be to determine the 1st Advent as follows, as the first sunday after the 26th of November.
