    if (data.hasOwnProperty(k)) {
        var ev = data[k];
        if (data[k].type == 'VEVENT') {
            console.log(`${ev.summary} is in ${ev.location} on the ${ev.start.getDate()} of ${months[ev.start.getMonth()]} at ${ev.start.toLocaleTimeString('en-GB')}`);
 
        }
    }
}

Recurrences and Exceptions

Calendar events with recurrence rules can be significantly more complicated to handle correctly. There are three parts to handling them:

  1. rrule - the recurrence rule specifying the pattern of recurring dates and times for the event.
  2. recurrences - an optional array of event data that can override specific occurrences of the event.
  3. exdate - an optional array of dates that should be excluded from the recurrence pattern.

See example_rrule.js for an example of handling recurring calendar events.
