Se7en’s Almanac

We are slowly building this Calendar post up, month by month… It is a resource post. You can click on the monthly links on the right hand side of our website. Every month we list something to celebrate on each day of the month. Month by month we have grown a resource of links and things to do, things to learn and things to explore. You can use our calendar in one of two ways…

  1. Click on the month and find that day on which you would like to celebrate something. So if you are looking for something to celebrate on your birthday then go ahead and look through the relevant month until you find the day you are after.
  2. or

  3. You can search through the whole calendar site for a particular person or event and use the links as a resource for a study you are doing. For example, search through the whole list for Florence Nightingale, when you find her click on her name. That will take you into the month of May… scroll through the month of May until you find the links for her.

Hope you enjoy the whole year…
