Title: Measuring a Year

Snippet: The feverish hunt is on. It’s one taken every year at this time. Sometimes it’s a competition, and sometimes, it’s just plain silly. However, almost everyone partakes in the activity: the hunt to find the perfect calendar to mark the coming year.

Starting in November, calendars for the following year bombard stores. Various forms can be found. The twelve-page version with a different photograph for each month seems to be the most popular. Nowadays, you can buy them in just about any theme, including old time rock and roll, castles, goats and lighthouses.

Local businesses wanting customers to remember they are there to meet their needs often provide free calendars with their name and contact information. Charity organisations also take advantage of this public need by selling calendars to raise money for their cause.
