Reflection

It would seem that habitual calendar widget that is generally based on an elementary rigid grid that time to time is supplemented by optional stripe horizontal layout can’t amaze us by its appearance. Fortunately, we were wrong; the modern designers easily transform any regular unremarkable date-oriented program into something exquisite and stylish.
