Documentation

There's an OpenAPI spec at Canada-Holidays-API.v1.yaml and a SwaggerHub page where you can test the endpoints.

There’s also a basic overview on GitHub if you’re a “read-the-first-and-last-chapter” kind of person.

Citations

I’ve references to all the sources I’m using for each region in Canada, so it should all be accurate.

Mistaeks do happen, however — lemme know if you spot any.
