I got this to put on the shared desk at work. Everyone likes to read the little items on each day. However, it is obviously from Britain, and since we are in America, some of the items are different to some of the workers. I personally like trivia of any kind. You can never get too much knowledge.

We love this eclectic little calendar-some of the best information and quotes we now know have come from this page-a-day-our high school students actually refer to it for homework sometimes-as it is hard to find facts and information-sometimes it just makes you think a little harder-Unbelievable factoids-sometimes you just have to smile and laugh-whats not to love about it-we will be ordering a 2009...

I have given Schott's Almanac as a Christmas gift for several years. It is very quirky. Then my nephew gave me the calendar. It is both rare and well done. Best calendar of that ilk that I have ever seen.
