cool tool but useless on modern *NIX.
Back when dinosaurs roamed and most ale-ers had non-gray hair (or hair at
all!) and terminals were amber or green, tools like calendar were essential.
For tiny systems, that's a great tool!
see 'cal' command. It is in util-linux-ng package so is installed on Fedora
and RHEL. It will not do the birthday thing from the OP but will display a
simple 1 month (default), prior/current/next 3-month spread, or full year
all with current day highlighted.

As long as the general population is passive, apathetic, diverted to
consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable, then the powerful can do as they
please, and those who survive will be left to contemplate the outcome.
