    I read someplace you had php code for your calenders. Would you be willing to share that code? In particular the code used for the Celtic calender you have displayed here.

    Also, have you ever made a print calender? A group I belong too would love to make a calender based on what you have in this blog post.

    Hi John

    You can find all of the code for the individual calendars at http://www.time-meddler.co.uk/includes. I haven’t ever done a print calendar, no. Usually I just create PDFs of the month calendars and print them if necessary.
