You can all thank Kathryn, who commented that she would like to see a birthday calendar. The biggest struggle was to decide which of the decorative elements would be nice. I decided to do the pretty lace one and then decided to do once using the gradient, slightly thinner and with, I think, fewer cuts.
You will note there are more than 12 months. That is because I wanted to both make the sheets full, with no blank spots, and so I could include alternatives. For example, February (with and without the 29th of a Leap Year – people with birthdays on the 29th have it hard enough LOL!) and so I could offer Red/Green for December, AND for the first time cater to those who would prefer BLUE for the festive season. I found this little breakdown, which is surely the result of people like me who have only the vaguest idea of how to spell it, and depend on Google to auto-correct!
Hanukkah : 8,470,000 hits.
Chanukah : 3,390,000 hits.
Hanukah : 862,000 hits.
Hannukah : 677,000 hits.
Chanuka : 335,000 hits.

Hannuka : 51,400 hits.
Hannukkah : 37,300 hits.
Channuka : 33,600 hits.
Xanuka : 992 hits. (even I know this one is crazy)
Hannukka : 686 hits.
Channukkah : 508 hits.
Channukka : 489 hits.
Chanuqa : 25 hits. (and this one!)
But again, people who don’t celebrate Christmas might be I bit tired of only seeing Red or Green for December.
So basically, all you need to do is print and cut. There is a NOTES section, so if you have too many birthdays on a single day you can use that for extras. Or you can add Anniversaries or other milestones like retirement, make special note of the big birthdays (18, 21, 50, etc) or jot down gift ideas that might come to you at any time during the year. Really whatever you think you need.
I still want to do one that is more clean lined and graphic, possibly using this one as the style:
but it would be handy for anyone who wants a particular style to make note of it as a comment, preferably with a link so there is no confusion. Also please comment if you prefer the two-to-a-page style or the thinner 3-to-a-page style.
Oh, and I had thought I might do a Decorate-it-Yourself version, like the calendar blocks that people seem to like:
Does that appeal?
Jeez. I disappear for MONTHS and return full of questions…..
