How can I add a localised holiday calendar to iCal? I would like to add all public holidays to iCal/iCloud, how to best do this?
(Personally I'm after the Norwegian and Australian Holidays, but I'm after a general answer.)

Apple has many calendars you can add: http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/calendars/
Just found official Apple calendar for French holidays at:
I guess from that URL we can derive a generic scheme for other localized iCal sources.
Given a minimal editing it could be converted to ical and then imported.
For instance for Norway one would need to write following for the first 2 instances of Ascension (for more dtails on the syntax:RFC5545)
