In the THICH NHAT HANH 2010 Calendar, the artwork is lovely and the quotations are inspiring. The rectangles for each day measure 1 1/2 inch by 1 3/4 inch, which is plenty of room to record your appointments or other notes. The solar and lunar eclipses, solstices, equinoxes, and the phases of the moon are noted with the exact hour. For example, the full moon on January 30 will occur at 1:18 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, presumably the peak time of the occurance. It even mentions that Mercury is retrograde from August 20th through September 12th.
This calendar notes some major holidays of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Baha'i, and Pagan/Wiccan.... but there are many omissions. For example, Mexican Independance Day is noted (September 16th) but Confucius' Birthday is absent. France's Bastille Day is noted (July 14th), but Chinese and Taoist holidays are not mentioned. The only Tibetan festival noted is Losar (New Year's Day) and the Dalai Lama's birthday. So this is not a comprehensive Buddhist calendar; but it has broad universal appeal.
This calendar is classy. It would suit almost any room and provide inspiration all year.
