Another form of year-round greeting is the calendar, a New Year gift that stays with the recipient long after the other greetings have left the mantlepiece.
The greeting calendar came into general use in the 1870s and 80s, initially as an extension of the novelty almanac, much favoured as give-aways by early advertisers, and later as a hanging wall decoration.
