Question Automatically add tag if word/phrase found in ebook?

I'm sort of new to Calibre (though I'm loving it quite a lot so far!) and so I'm not sure if something like this is even possible, so I'm going to through this idea out there and hope someone knows more than I do...

I use a Sony PRS-600 and rely on Calibre tags to sort my 1000+ epub documents into useable collections. Unfortunately I tend to add documents in bulk and all the documents do not always belong in the same collections. I'd like to be able to have some sort of plugin(?) search the documents for specific words or phrases and, if found, add a corresponding tag to the book. For example, if the word "Christmas" is mentioned somewhere in the document, the tag "Christmas" should be added. Is there some way to do this? It would save me SO MUCH TIME.

Thanks in advance.

You would need to write your own plugin - if you look at the extract ISBN plugin this has most of the code you would need on the search side, and the final piece of that plugin updates the ISBN field, instead you would need to have it update the tag field. Overall not too difficult, but it does require some basic coding skills.
