Well, in a windows forms application, the month calender doesn't support descriptions, but there are alternatives. Here's a code example.

Add this class to your project.
using System;
public class Holiday
    public DateTime Time {get; set;}
    public string Description {get; set;}
    public Holiday(DateTime time, string des)
        Time = time;
        Description = des;

Then use the following code in your code block.
Holiday[] holidays = { new Holiday(new DateTime(2012, 12, 25), "Christmas"), new Holiday(new DateTime(2013, 1, 1), "New year's") };
monthCalendar1.DateSelected += delegate(object sender, DateRangeEventArgs e)
    Holiday day = holidays.ToList().Find(t => t.Time == e.Start);
    if (day != null)
         //Do something here...display messagebox, etc

foreach (Holiday time in holidays) //Bold holidays

Where I use this code. In the form_load event? I didn't unterstand,
"monthCalendar1.DateSelected += delegate(object sender, DateRangeEventArgs e)"
is event or code.
