I usually use the Google Calendar or Thunderbird calendar on my computers, tablet, phone....

Decided to check out the Windows 10 Calendar app, and it's showing Christ mas Eve as the 23rd, Christmas day as the 24th, and boxing day as the 25th.  New Years eve 30th Dec, New Years day 31st Dec, day after New Year as 1st Jan. On two computers, and Tablet running Win 10 with all updates. Windows phone calendar is fine as it's Windows 8.1

 Anyone else seeing this?

I can't be precise, but I think that this has been the case for at least more than a week. Initially I noticed personal entries into the calendar were displayed a day prior to that which had been entered but this at least seems to have been corrected. This problem only seems to affect W10 Calendar app, I have a Lumia 803 on Windows 8.1 and the Windows calendar is showing the correct dates.

The Windows 10 Calendar App  has always had a problem with "All Day" events.

 

Possibly related to the New Zealand Time Zone "(UTC+12:00) Auckland, Wellington"

 

The App has probably not been tested with Time Zones other than "(UTC-10:00) Hawaii through" to "(UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US)"

 

The new Holiday Calendar feature is useless for NZ Holidays!

Yep, it always seems that the software testing done by Microsoft for its products never matches companies like Apple. I would have thought that developing operating systems for the past few decades might have enabled them to build a comprehensive set of edge case tests which, of course, would include time zone quirks and the like. Alas...

It looks as though the recent update 17.6568.16732 dated 2nd Feb has resolved the predating problem when using the the 'all day' option.

Nope....  Still broken here. Two desktops and a Windows 10 tablet with the latest updates.

My Apologies, you are correct.  I have just inputted a a full day entry and it still backdated by a day.  I wonder if the system is using the end time of the 'all day' period to determine where it is displayed on the calendar or is simply due to NZ timezone?

Along those lines, is it possible to import iCloud calendars into that? Mine just gets an error message when I try. I read some place iCloud imports aren't supported.

Edit: outlook calendars import iCloud calendars all right but I don't as hoping to use the Windows 10 app...

Edit two: never mind, I'll just import it into google calendar and get it into Windows 10 calendar that way...

Not a good example; iSync had a bug for *years* where birthdays would gradually "drift" on the calendar when copying from one device to another. The problem only happened in the "eastern hemisphere"...

I quite like Apple stuff, but they're not a great example when it comes to timezones. The number of times they stuffed up daylight savings times in the last 5 years is shocking, and I'm sure they had calendar events showing in the wrong day for a while too.
