I wish we had a nickel for every time we’ve wanted to print out a calendar – monthly, weekly, yearly, etc. Calendar Magic is an amazing little program with so many options. We’ll let the developer tell you about it – so many features – for such a great price…like free!

This developer is nowhere near as laconic as most, in fact (are you sitting down?), he’s even more windy than we. Really. So rather than reading our rambling, you will now read his:

“Calendar Magic is an easy-to-use program that is entertaining, informative, educational and of equal applicability in the home and in the office. Calendar Magic has been tested on Windows 95, 98, Me, XP, Vista (32-bit) and Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit), and has also been reported to run without problems on other versions of Windows.

Features of Calendar Magic include:

  • Full year and individual month Gregorian, Afghan, Armenian, Baha’i, Balinese Pawukon (full year only), Balinese Saka, Bangla, Chinese, Coptic, Egyptian, Ethiopic, French Revolutionary, Hebrew, Hindu Lunisolar (3 variants), Hindu Solar, Indian National, Islamic Arithmetical (8 variants), Julian, Revised Julian, Parsi Fasli, Parsi Kadmi, Parsi Shenshai, Persian (2 variants), Sikh Nanakshahi and Vietnamese calendars. A user option is provided to choose between displaying/printing calendars showing each week starting on a Monday (in line with the ISO 8601 international standard), on a Sunday for North American users, or on a Saturday for Middle East users.
  • Alternative Gregorian planning calendars.
  • “Dual Calendars” – full year calendars in various calendar systems which show, not only the months and days for a year in any one of the calendar systems, but also the corresponding Gregorian dates.
  • A month-by-month, side-by-side comparison of any two of the 25 calendar systems listed above. The display remains synchronised as you change day, month and year values in either calendar system being viewed. Again, users may choose between displaying each month with weeks starting on a Saturday, Sunday or Monday.
  • Date conversions among the 25 calendar systems listed above, plus conversions to Aztec Tonalpohualli, Aztec Xiuhpohualli, Balinese Pawukon, Thai solar, old Hindu Solar, old Hindu Lunisolar and Mayan date formats. Julian day value, day of week and day of year information is also displayed. For Gregorian dates, many other facts are displayed, such as modified Julian day value, Lilian day value and Rata Die day value, and year related information including Roman numeral form, Dominical Letter(s), Dionysian Period, Julian Period, Golden Number, Solar Number, Roman Indiction and Epact. Various special days are also recognised (e.g. Halloween), as are modern Olympic years, Commonwealth Games years, European Athletics Championship years, and World Athletic Championship years.
  • Conversion of British sovereign regnal dates to historical Julian (years beginning on Jan. 1) or Gregorian dates, as appropriate.
  • Conversion between ancient Greek Olympiad numbering and calendar years.
  • Lists of Western Christian festivals, Eastern Orthodox festivals, Hebrew festivals and Islamic festivals for any (Gregorian) year. In addition, Hindu festivals may be listed for any year in the range 2000 to 2043, Baha’i festivals from 1845 onwards, Balinese Hindu festivals from 1816 onwards, Buddhist and Chinese festivals from 1645 to 3000, and Sikh Nanakshahi festivals from 1999 onwards.
  • Observed Days for any year from 1990 for over 230 countries and dependencies worldwide.
  • Date Detective command button to tabulate the weekday on which a specified Gregorian date d/m occurs for each of the years in the specified range y1 to y2.
  • In Which Months? command button to list, over a range of years, the months in which a specified day of the month falls on a specified weekday.
  • The ability to create, display, update and delete reminders for events (birthdays, anniversaries, meetings etc.) for this year,next year or every year. When Calendar Magic is started up, both visual and audible warnings are given for imminent events (those occurring within the next seven days) for which reminders have been set. In addition, a calendar for any month, in this year or next year, may be displayed with day numbers highlighted in red for those days in the month for which reminders have been set. Left-clicking on any red day will cause the reminder(s) set for that day to be listed.

Out-of-date reminders are also automatically purged by Calendar Magic and appended to a text file, purged.dat, for later reference, if needed….

  • A Currency Converter.
  • Average speed based calculations.

  • Support for printing any output displayed, and/or copying it to another program via the Windows clip-board using the usual Ctrl+A , Ctrl+C, Ctrl+P, Ctrl+X and Ctrl+V keyboard commands…”

Whew! That’s a lot of features, but would you believe there are dozens more? So if this seems like the calendar program you’ve been wishing for, wish no more. Visit the Calendar Magic home page and learn more and/or download Calendar Magic – it’s our freeware pick of the week.

    Doesn’t appear to be working right now.

    Love this print. Nice and dark and bold. Very easy reading.
