A display method operative within a display device of a data processing system connected in a distributed computing environment having nodes located across geographically-dispersed boundaries. The method begins by defining a plurality of sets of holiday objects each corresponding to a set of holidays specific to a given locale. A graphical representation of a calendar, together with a set of holiday objects, are then displayed. If the user enters a new locale, the method dynamically switches between sets of holiday objects according to the new locale entered. The new set of holiday objects may be displayed on the same calendar, or on a new calendar.
