Import holidays into JIRA calendar

Hello, 
I'd like to know how to add (or import) holidays into JIRA calendar?
I need it for two main reasons:
  1. Be able to measure net working time per issue (i.e. filter out holidays) or just to collect net time for all issues in a certain project.
  2. Be able to watch the calendar and quickly identify when my developers will not attend to work (due to holidays)
If that's possible indeed, please let me know if JIRA supports local holidays and how to import holidays of particular countries?
Thanks in advance

Hi Mosh,

You can create a new calendar called Holiday or simply add events to an existing calendar.

Also, you can search for iCal holiday files and import them to a calendar.
If you search for 'ical holiday files' you'll find it easily.

Thanks and regards,
Paula Silveira
