It is also interesting to note that throughout the list, dates of events in Lord of the Rings are interspersed, Such as Gandalf visits Bilbo on 3/18. Funny stuff.

There's more calendars, too... get a whole list of them by typing cd /usr/share/calendar/ ls at the prompt. You can then "cat" the whole list that you get by typing cat , where is one of the files that you got from ls. By the way, these files are for use with the calendar program. I can't get it to work, but you can try. Type man calendar at the prompt for more information on the calendar program.
