Holiday Search in Spotlight

Apple Allows you to search via Holiday

I am not sure if this is unique to MacOS 10.15, but I noticed something cool about the Spotlight search. You can put in holidays and it will find files that were created on that day.

Here's an example of Halloween:

Halloween2019 Spotlight

Here's an example of Christmas:

Christmas2018 Spotlight

Easter 2018:

Easter2019 Spotlight

How Cool is that?

None of the files found have the "Halloween, Christmas or Easter" text in them. So Spotlight had to have matched the event with the date.

I tried other dates such as my Birthday - to see if Spotlight would interpret contact data as part of the Spotlight search. That didn't work.

What do you think? What other "Easter Eggs" are being used by Sportlight?
