I wrote some code for finding the date of Easter. Now I want to use it with the TiKZ calendar to mark the Easter related holidays.

Here's what I have so far:

The trick was to use the command \pgfkeys.

Here is the full code:

Here is the result:

Here is an expanded version: http://pastebin.com/KYngbPGQ

There is also a version here: http://www.texample.net/tikz/examples/birthday-calendar/

Please note that this solution requires an up-to-date TeX distro. It won’t work with the distro that comes with Ubuntu 12.04 and older.

    Shouldn't this be made into a package? (Or incorporated into tikz itself?)

  • @mbork I've already added a feature request. I need to convert the code to something generic (no latex3).

  • @Qrrbrbirlbel Sure :) I'll add it ASAP.

  • @cjorssen was the feature request successful? and if yes, could you add an answer to explain how one can use it to solve this problem?

The same code but with TeX counts.

The formula from WikiBooks: Algorithmensammlung: Kalendar: Feiertage was used.

Due to the nature of the test, if one uses an argument to Easter (e.g. Eastern=365) so that the actual day to test against lies not in the current year, this will fail. (You cannot test a day from year 2013 that lies somehow relatively to Eastern in 2012.)
