But in your case it appears to be based on overly ambitious heuristics?

Yeah I'm thinking the email contained mentions of an hotel, maybe an ad or something like that ?
|Quoting Braybuddy (Reply 3):|
I have no problem with Google adding any of that information to my calendar, but creating fictional hotel bookings is bizarre to say the least.

I have my Google calendar set so that absolutely no information is added to my calendar from e-mails which I receive on the gmail account.
|Quoting Braybuddy (Reply 5):|
As I haven't had any problems with this before, I find it very handy. The only thing that bugs me about the calendar is the abundance of the preset events, ones which have absolutely no relevance to me (ie birthdays of people I barely know, bank holidays in other countries and names of days, such as "Boxing Day" for 26 December, which no-one uses here) which seem you seem to have to go back to ground zero to remove, which hardly seems worthwhile.
Does anybody know if there's an easy way to edit or remove these?

For holidays, check what is subscribed in the Other calendars listing. If looking at the calendar on your computer, it should be right under the My calendars listing. There should be a list of which countries' holidays are being displayed. Go to the settings and change to the calendars tab. From there you can then unsubscribe to the ones you don't want to see or just hide them. You can also add other countries' holidays as well. Also, in the general tab, you can change the country to whatever you want.
As for birthdays, where is the calendar pulling the information from? Contacts only or Google+ circles and Contacts? If it is set to Google+ circles and Contacts, you will get everyone's birthday from their Google+ profile. If set to Contacts only, you will need to put the birthday into the contact information for it to show automatically.

They do in Northern Ireland I use both depending on which audience Im talking to. Even some Southern colleagues use Boxing Day too.
|Quoting Braybuddy (Reply 7):|
Thank you! Fixed it in two minutes. Funny, I googled this before and found a Youtube clip which was so convoluted it didn't seem worthwhile. It involved resetting the calendar entirely, so any events added would have to be re-entered manually.
The UK calendar was the default setting (zero marks there Google: you should know where I live ) and I had no idea other countries were lurking there under the skin.

I found in the settings that the country was set to Japan, probably because I had the language settings for my computer set to Japanese in order to display Japanese file names properly (I have a lot of music with Japanese file names). I ended up keeping the Japanese holiday listing since I used to work for a Japanese airline.
