I realize all engineers are nerds but...

If you set up a weekly meeting and one of the occurrences happens to fall on, like, Christmas day, and you take the trouble of sending out a cancellation notice, you're a huge dork. It's pretty obvious we're not all going to come into work for your 1-hour meeting. Or maybe you're just OCD - but there's something. I'm just saying.

I dunno ... doesn't seem totally unreasonable to me.

Living in Germany .... I'm happy that they send out emails (sometimes!) when there is a holiday. Otherwise I might be the only one at the lab, say on Pentecost or Himmelfahrt or der Tag des Deutschen Einheit or in the month of August. (-:

Erm..it takes like 2 seconds to cancel a meeting occurance in Outlook and send it out. Why does sending a cancellation make them a huge dork?

maybe just they don't want to come back to the office to the notification they missed something.

I cancel them so they are not beeping on people's phones (including mine) through the holiday
