"Only [bold: {days_count} days] until {holiday}! ({date})"
is now active, and phrase itself is translated, but:
a) where I can translate {holiday} contents (currently English word Christmas appears in translated text)?
b) if the format of {date} is wrong (somehow translated, but such format is not used in such sentences) where I can edit it?

There's not token for it yet. Michael Berkovich, any word on this?

Hopefully they delay these phrases until they have a localization solution for WHEN the holiday is celebrated, and send them out related to the users time-zone setting and not as today when announcement of someones birthday is one day to late.

In Russia Christmas is for example on January 7th, in most of Europe the December 24th and the difference is even more for father and mothers-day.

In Serbia, We are celebrating Christmas (Божић) at 7th January, and New Year is at 14th January.

Eastern day is not at the same day as Catholic Eastern day, etc, etc.

For example, 4th of July is not important to us, but it is 15th February when we are celebrating National holiday of Serbia.

I think it will be a good idea for Geni Developers to collect some important dates from us and show to end-user depending on which language he is using Geni portal.

This is only an idea.

The obvious solution would be that each language could define its own holidays. For the mean-time though, we shouldn't let cultures that coincide suffer.

A simple suggestion until å more complete solution is offered; When translating the events where the local dates don't match the US dates, put "(US)" as part of the translation to keep confusion at a manageable level.

That's a good idea.
