When you set up a birthday for a contact, you can see it in your Google Calendar by showing the birthday calendar.

To enable the birthday calendar, do the following:

  1. Settings > Calendar Settings
  2. Choose the Calendars tab
  3. Browse interesting calendars >>
  4. Choose the More tab
  5. Select Subscribe on the Contacts' birthdays and events calendar.

Now whenever you add a birthday to a contact, you should see it in your calendar.

thank you, working nicely .. buuuut. What I do about birthday event is that I setup email reminder for about 1 or 2 weeks prior the actual birthday. Can I do that now? I am happy to have for every single birthday like that. – Radek Sep 29 '10 at 4:01
