Default Android holiday calendar off by one day? xmas on dec 24th...wtf?

This has been the case on the last few Android phones I've had, finally hoping to find a fix cause its annoying.

All holidays are off by one day...shows Xmas as the 24th instead of the 25th.

I've never had this issue.

Go to calendar.google.com on a browser and add the holiday calendar there. It will automatically sync with your phone and show the correct holidays on your phone.

In the left column there is a line that says "Other calendars" -> click the box and choose "browse interesting calendars"

You will find holiday calendars for many different countries, plus other calendars you can add

I'm guessing it's more of an Anglo-Saxon thing because in the Germanic language countries they generally do it on Xmas Day, the 25th, afaik.

Another cultural Xmas difference: in Anglo-Saxon countries the Xmas tree is usually topped with a star. In Germanic countries the majority of Xmas tree top decorations are peaks. Or vice versa. I forget which... (must be a senior moment).
