Ditto.  Here in Ohio, with time set to New York / EST, gcal also reports the 
26th as Christmas.

Yes.  This is likely very certainly a bug. ;-)

As far as Christmas Eve being a holiday, it is not common, with only the 
occurance of most/some Christians attending a holiday mass during Christmas 

Either entered into the database incorrectly, or the only holiday set to use 
UTC, hence falling upon the next day, but that wouldn't make sense.
