My family members requested that the 'Today in history' be replaced by National & Religious events as this is more useful.
In the Administration of calendar settings one can switch the 'Today in history' off, but can not a similar option be put for the National & Religious events?
Email notifications sounds brilliant - I'll definitely switch it on. Does it work for National & Religious holidays too? What about other special days like Valentines, Mother's / Father's day? does the email notification go to only the webmaster or all the members of your site? guys need to be reminded of everything ;-)
