    Default Calendar on phone duplicating holidays

    The calendar on my phone is duplicating all holidays.
    My Google calendar on my laptop only shows them once.

    Any advice on how to fix this?

    Open the calendar app and open the settings. There should be am option to display calendars. Click that and check to see that there are no calendars checked that shouldn't be. I have my Gmail calendar, US Holidays and weather selected and don't have issues. Let us know if you are able to fix it.

    S Planner - Calendars - Display - I have my task, family birthdays (from Google), Holidays in US, Holidays in UK and my Google calendar checked.

    The duplicates aren't because I have both US & UK Holidays as it duplicates both. For example Boxing Day is only in the UK, it shows twice, Christmas Day is in both, so shows up four times.

    Just removed Gmail from my phone and re-added it. That fixed the problem.

    I am having the same problem. I have my phone synced with my google account and no others. I have it set to show United States Holidays. If I look at my calendar on my desk top, I don't see duplicate holidays. But when I pull up my calendar on my SGS3, some (not all) of the holidays are duplicated. For example, July 4, Labor day, and Thanksgiving are all duplicated, but Veteran's day, Christmas, and Patriot's day are not. Does anyone out there know how to fix this? Thanks

    Cool Re: Calendar on phone duplicating holidays

    It took a while but here is how I finally fixed this issue.

    On my pc under google calendars, even though the holidays were only showing up once there, I unsubscribed to Holidays in the United States. I synched the calendar on my phone and they were all gone. I then went back on my pc and re-subscribed to Holidays in the United States, resynched on my phone (I had to go back into calendars, display, and check the box for Holidays) and they were back but only one time.

    Worked for me too. Also helped a calendar show up on my phone that was only showing up on PC dedpite being selected to synch on my phone.

    Didn't work for me. It just keeps displaying dupes or not after every sync.

    Do you have more than one Google calendar linked (under Other Calendars). If both of them have holidays, it may show as duplicates.
