Hindu Holidays Planning Calendar for 2010

Here are a list of select holidays scheduled in 2010.

If you'd like holiday reminders of these and other holidays sent to your inbox, subscribe to my Indian-American Calendar.
**Please take note that as most Hindu Holidays are calculated based on a lunar calendar, sometimes dates shift by one or two days, so recheck calendars closer to the proposed dates to assure accuracy. I will also update if required.
