For me, mon ami, getting a new calendar means that I’m fully aware that the year is coming to an end in a matter of a few months. Around this time, calendars for the next year will be now available. Depending on the store, new calendars may already be around as early as July.
I give a lot of thought to getting a new calendar because it’ll be nailed to my wall for the whole year and I don’t want it to become an eyesore. I know that a calendar has basic functions—to tell the date, day of the week and the occasion( if so stated) on the date box. But I still believe that a calendar’s appearance also has to blend with the decor in your home or workspace.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder so if I find a new calendar to be appealing to me, then so be it.
Getting one shouldn’t be expensive either. My blood freezes when I see calendars being sold especially at the big-box chain bookstores for $20++++!!! Sacre bleu!
Ever the perennial bargain hunter, I have found and stuck to a particular crafts store(Michaels) that sells calendars for as low as $1.50 up to $3.00 each. With a store coupon, you’ll get it even at a lower price and the calendars are big and pretty too. I’m quite partial to calendars with 12 different picture pages than just 1 picture with 12 white standard calendar pages(like a notebook).
Just my 2 cents’ worth on this subject.
