Hi anonymous user

You can get the similar output using one of the endpoints and refinitiv-data library

import refinitiv.data as rd
import pandas as pd

rd.open_session()
url = "https://api.refinitiv.com/analytics/functions/v1/common/list-holidays"
body = {
    "universe": [
        {"startDate": "2023-01-01", 
         "endDate": "2023-12-29", 
         "calendarCodes": ["USA"]}
    ]
}

request = rd.delivery.endpoint_request.Definition(
    method=rd.delivery.endpoint_request.RequestMethod.POST,
    url=url,
    body_parameters=body,
)
response = request.get_data()
pd.DataFrame(response.data.raw["data"][0]["holidays"])

To get the calendarCodes from currency code:

url = "https://api.refinitiv.com/analytics/functions/v1/fx/fx-info"
body = {"universe": 
        [{"currencyCodes": 
          ["USD"]}]}

request = rd.delivery.endpoint_request.Definition(
    method=rd.delivery.endpoint_request.RequestMethod.POST,
    url=url,
    body_parameters=body,
)
response = request.get_data()
response.data.raw

Hi @marcin.bunkowski01 , Thank you so much, this is really very helpful. I need to know one more thing, USD works for United States, do I need to use currency as EUR for Irish Holidays ?

For Ireland specific you can use "IRL"

@marcin.bunkowski01 , thank you very much. This would be my last query under this request/blog : Where can I get all the "calendarCodes" based on country ?

Hi anonymous user ,


Thank you for your question. I believe the correct RIC for UK Holidays is 'GB/HOLIDAY' and for Ireland is 'NXT/HOLIDAY'.

Could you please try with this ticker and see if that resolves your issue?


Best regards,

Hi @h.aramyan01, Thanks for above, however it is not helpful to our purpose. Can't we have the data based on HOL app using Python Eikon API, shown in the attached snapshot, where there is a option pull excel to get proper way in a table format for Holiday list, I want exactly in same in Pandas Python dataframe.hol-list-from-hol-app.jpghol-app-data-using-python.jpg

Hi @h.aramyan01 , Can you please check my above comment ?
