How to Create a Yearly Calendar in Apple (MAC) Pages
Did you know that the experts of British archeology believe that the first calendar was made in the year 8,000 BC? To add, calendars have come a long way, and people have altered and improved them in time. When you look around, calendars are everywhere—at home, at work, and even in our phones. On the same note, making your own calendar instead of buying is sometimes better. So, if you want to make one, here are some tips for you:
1. Plan the Layout
Before you start your calendar, you have to identify what kind of layout you might want. Do you want to fill the entire page with 12 months or use 12 different pages for each month as a monthly calendar?
2. Check the Exact Days of the Year
The next thing you can do is to check the exact days of the year. You have to note that a simple calendar has to be accurate. Remember, 2019 is not the same as in the year 2020 and for other years, as well. For this, you have to get the right calendar as your copy.
3. Create the Outline
Now, you can start making your calendar's outline. Start with making seven columns. Next, you can add the days of the week to each column. After that, carefully plot a specific number on each box.
4. Plot Essential Events
On your calendar, you can now add your upcoming events and schedules. You can add holidays, birthdays, project deadlines, and more details on the days of your calendar.
5. Enhance the Look of the Calendar
It's time to be creative. You don't need to be like Picasso to turn your calendar into a masterpiece. You can make your sample calendar look beautiful just by adding colors, artistic typographies, or pasting pictures.
What Do You Mean by Yearly?
The word 'yearly' means occurring or happening once a year.
How Often Do Years Repeat?
A calendar (non-leap year) repeats twice every 11 years. Then, again it repeats after six years. For leap year calendars, they repeat every 28 years.
How Many Calendars Sell Every Year?
According to Henry Davis's blog, 16 million calendars are sold every year. This goes to show that people are still interested in using calendars.
How Many Weeks Are in a Year?
In a year, there are about 52 weeks. There are 365 days in a year, and there are seven days in a week. So, you will only have to divide these numbers: 365 divided by seven is equal to 52.14.
Why Is February So Short?
According to history, if you go back in time in Rome, they only had ten months in their calendar. This started from March to December. However, that time, the year was short of 61.25 days. So, King Numa Pompilius removed one day from all the even numbers in the calendar (they believed even numbers were bad luck). So, the king put the remaining days to January and February. January got 29, and February got 28. However, Julis Caesar added a day(s) to each month except February.
