Here's a cool program that allows you to determine virtually any date information you could ever possibly want to know. A few of the programs features are listed below.
Calendar Magic is an easy-to-use freeware Windows 95/98/Me/XP based program that is entertaining, informative, educational, and of equal applicability in the home and in the office. Calendar Magic has also been reported to run without problems on Windows NT/2000 based PCs, but the program has never been formally tested on such systems.
Features of Calendar Magic include:
* Full year and individual month Gregorian, Afghan, Armenian, Baha'i, Bangla, Chinese, Coptic, Egyptian, Ethiopic, French Revolutionary, Hebrew, Hindu Lunisolar (3 variants), Hindu Solar, Indian National, Islamic Civil, Julian, Revised Julian, Parsi Fasli, Parsi Kadmi, Parsi Shenshai, Persian (2 variants), Sikh Nanakshahi and Vietnamese calendars. A user option is provided to choose between displaying/printing calendars showing each week starting on a Monday (in line with the ISO 8601 international standard), on a Sunday for North American users, or on a Saturday for Middle East users.
* Alternative Gregorian "planning calendars".
* A month-by-month, side-by-side comparison of any two of the 23 calendar systems listed above. The display remains synchronised as you change day, month and year values in either calendar system being viewed. Again, users may choose between displaying each month with weeks starting on a Saturday, Sunday or Monday...
