I'd love to be able merge the functionalities of the Holiday Lists/Settings and the Season Rules. I prefer to restrict arrival/departure on major holidays. (Who wants to turn over a property on Christmas Day?! Not me!) To accomplish this now, I have to create a Season that is simply the day of each of these holidays (Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year's Day, etc.) and then utilize the changeover restrictions option to block arrivals/departures on those dates. And then I need to remember to repeat this for each new calendar year. It would be more ideal if on the holiday list(s) we're subscribed to, we can select specific holidays and add arrival/departure restrictions directly there. #Gamechanger

This would be a great feature to add.  So you create a separate season for each holiday and restrict check-in and check-out for that day only?  How does this work for thanksgiving which isn’t the same date of the month?  Do you have to update it every year?

Hey Joshua! Yes, right now my workaround is to manually create a separate season for each holiday and then restrict check-in/out for that day only. These seasons have to be year specific in order for them to fall on a specific date, so yep, that also means I need to update it every year. It's a LOT, but it's the only workaround I could think of!

Do you create it for the week or just the date?  So if you didn't want someone checking out Christmas you'd create for Dec 25th 2022 and not allow check out on a Sunday?

I created a season for each holiday I wanted to restrict and then you uncheck whether check in is allowed or not.  As far as I can tell, for holidays that fall on the same date (Christmas, New Years, etc) you only have to set it once.  For holidays that the date changes (Labor Day, Thanksgiving, etc).  You have to manually change it every year.

We have the season set for a few days before and after (depending on the holiday) and then limit the check in/check out including several days. 

so as an example we have Christmas set as 12/23-12/26 with no checkin or out on the 24th or 25th.

I would add that essential to this is the ability to prohibit "flips" on certain holidays. 

I have a ski rental, so it is common for groups to check in or check out on holidays. I want to continue to allow either a check-in or a check-out on those days, but not both.

I would like to be able to prohibit check outs or corresponding check in on holidays. Too hard to cover holidays. If someone checks out and the next day is a holiday, automatically block. Only a manual override would work.
