I must have missed the part about needing to add a calendar and choose it as default. I got clewed in by a MacRumors blogger. On my OS 10.6.8 machine, still in use, the calendars suscribbed to showed up in my regular calendar. I can see at a glance if here's a national holiday coming up when I view the day. My birthdays I entered myself, setting repetition. I can't think why they changed it. Apple's grade: D for instruction, D for design.
