I’m tired of paying a small fortune for calendars every year, only to throw them out on New Years Day. From now on, I’m saving all my calendars and reusing them when there’s another year just like this one.
The way I figure it, I’ll need 7 calendars for non-leap years and 7 calendars for leap years. Is it as simple as that?
If it doesn’t have the phases of the moon, and you don’t mind holidays like Easter or Passover being represented inaccurately, sure. On the other hand, my (snarky) answer to the question the thread title is “Zero”, considering that I do not own a calendar and seem to get along reasonably well.
My parents have a wooden wall hanging, which has about three dozen wooden squares to be arranged upon a line of five shelves. These squares usually have numbers on one side. Some of them flip to reveal something like a little graphic indicating Christmas, for instance. There are six rectangular wood pieces for the months, which are double sided. While I find this calendar to be attractive, it’s only good for telling the date…no good at all for writing in appointments, etc.
I go to Dollar General or Family Dollar for calendars. These aren’t stores where everything’s a dollar, they’re the modern equivalent of five and dime stores. Most merchandise is fairly cheap in those stores.
But you need one for Peanuts, one for Dilbert, one for the Family Circus, one for Cathy
Oh sure you could look on the Intenet, but what if an atomic bomb were droppend and it destroyed the electric grid. You couldn’t get on your computer to find what day it was nor could you get a good laugh by reading your Dilbert calender
And believe me after the A-bomb is dropped you’d need a good laugh
Actually . . . I’ve given this some more thought, and now conclude that I need only 7 calendars. For leap years, all I have to do is switch to another calendar for the remainder of the year, beginning March 1.
You really only need 7/12th of a calendar–one page starting on Monday, one on Tuesday, etc. They all have to have 31 days. If you have a reasonable amount of intelligence, you know how many days are in each month and when to put the new page up.
