No, it’s standard. Here on the East Coast, the day starts at 6am, the week starts on a Monday, and the month ends on the last Sunday of the month. So broadcast 2008 starts on 12/31/07, and July 2007 started on June 25.
Alas, Ivy Lass, they’re out there. For years, we would send this one brand of Thai-photo-theme calendars to people in the US. We did this for years. Beautiful photography, really gorgeous shots. Then just a couple of years ago, suddenly they switched to the Monday-Sunday format. !!! We stopped buying them. I’ve seen others, too, so now I always check a calendar before buying it.
For the past 3 years, I’ve gotten this vertical wall calendar of gorgeous tropical islands.
In other years, I’ve done Edward Gorey’s Gashlycrumb Tinies, a mini wall calendar of Greek Isles, and Classic Cats by David McEnery.
I’ve been sent I think 3 wildlife calendars from people wanting my money for wildlife causes. I don’t know why–I’ve only ever sent money to one of 'em. Plus, I picked up a tropical islands calendar and some cheap cat calendar the other day. I don’t know which I’ll use where–I keep one in the kitchen, one in the bedroom and one at work.
I like to wait and see what free calendars get sent to me at work, then keep the best one (although they’re all fairly generic). I’m a little worried that no one’s sent one yet, but I’m set till January 31st…
