You can have multiple calendars in VueMinder. For example, you could have separate calendars for your personal events, work events, medical appointments, and holidays (I'm not saying that's what you need to do, I'm just offering that as an example).

When defining a new event, you can pick which calendar to associate the event with by using the "Calendar" drop-down in the Event Editor. Since you only have one calendar defined, only one calendar is listed in the drop-down. You can create other calendars using the "New -> Calendar" command on the File menu.

Please read the documentation. It explains everything you'd ever want to know about using VueMinder. The topic of multiple calendars is explained in the documentation linked below. There are many screenshots as well.

You can use whichever calendar you feel is best for you and delete the other ones you don't intend to use. To delete a calendar, right-click the calendar's name in the calendar list and select "Delete Calendar".

Are you referring to the drop-down list below the calendar list on the main window? That's where you can select the default calendar to be used for new events. Since you said you only want to use one calendar, you can ignore that drop-down list.
2 if you delete the other calendars can you get em back
But you said you only want to use one calendar. If you accidentally delete a calendar you can undo the deletion by using the Undo command on the Edit menu. If you actually want multiple calendars and the ability to selectively view or hide events belonging to those calendars, use the checkboxes next to the calendar names instead of deleting the calendars.

My recommendation is for you to do whatever you want to do. Use multiple calendars. Or use a single calendar. Or add whatever holiday calendars you want to add. Just pick an approach and go with it.

Yes, a different calendar can be selected from the drop-down "Calendar" list when editing an event.
2 if I delete the other calendars can you get em back
Yes, you can undo deleting a calendar by using the Undo command on the Edit menu, like I wrote in my previous answer to the exact same question.
