Here's a quick and easy way to pull in the National Holidays from Outlook 2003.
1) To first create the United States Holidays in Outlook 2003:
Pulldown tools, select Options,
click on Preferences tab,
click on Calendar Options button,
click on Add Holidays button,
select United States,
2) Then to move those Holidays over to ACT:
Pulldown Tools, point to Outlook Activities,
select Update Activities,
select "One-Way from Outlook Calendar to ACT! Calendar",
select all of the current year as the date range,
We repeat this process every calendar year.

I have always been frustrated with managing lists of dates - like holidays - I wanted a "duplicate" function to at least make it easier to enter them. But I did discover that you can Copy & Paste (Ctrl-c & Ctrl-V) -- perhaps this is silly obvious and I am just slow but I kept looking for a "duplicate event" type function (like a contact).....
IN calendar view, I set up one holiday event (to-do) the way I like, Different color, time 8:00-4:00 - banner, link to my company etc. Then hit OK.
Now select (do not open) the event you just created and Ctrl-C (or edit/copy), then move to the next day you have a holiday, Ctrl-V (edit/paste) and just change the name, all of the other setting are the same. The event will stay in the clipboard so you just need to move-paste-change name for each holiday.
