st: How to add business days to an existing date

Hi together,

I am not that experienced with Stata, so I need a little help.
I have a data set with time series observations in the following format

ID	Date		Price
1	01.01.2005	X
1	02.01.2005	X
1	03.01.2005	X
2	01.01.2005	X
2	02.01.2005	X
2	03.01.2005	X

Now I need to calculate a "Value Date", which means that I need a new Date which is the stated Date plus three Business Days. So weekends and bank holidays like January 1st, December 25th etc. 
should be omitted.
How can I solve this problem?
I already tried to solve this with a business calendar, but Stata always crashed if I load my calender. By the way, I am not 100% sure if I am doing everything in the correct way with the business calender.
Is there a way without using the business calendar??
