Pagan Daybook is a calendar to keep track of the days of the week, the ancient and modern tides and the pagan festivals and observances that fall on each day of the year. Far more interesting than a conventional calendar, it's something unique to put in the Startup group of Windows, or use as your screen saver. Never miss another solstice... or, perhaps more importantly, another saturnalia.

Pagan Daybook features an extensive database of listings — with five or six thousand years of civilization to draw on, it has at least one observance for every day of the year — full color graphics, an integrated screen saver, animation, user-configurable entries, selectable themes and various bits of magick. It includes a searchable calendar to allow you to query the database of observances.

WARNING: This software contains references to pagan beliefs and details from classical paintings in which some of the subjects aren't wearing very much. If this sort of thing offends you, please do not download Pagan Daybook.

This software is available for electronic delivery and on CD-ROM.

Downloading and installation of this software: You can ensure yourself of a problem-free installation by reviewing our downloading and installation instructions. The downloadable installer can be used to install either an evaluation copy or a fully-functional registered copy of this application.

Important: You might see a warning during download or installation of these installers concerning possible "malicious code." These messages are generated by Windows if you attempt to download and install most non-Microsoft software. They can be safely ignored.

Norton Antivirus users: Norton security products may generate spurious warnings about downloaded software installers, including some of ours. They appear as WS.Reputation alerts. Norton may delete incoming downloads when it generates this warning. WS.Reputation is not a virus — it's apparently an internal reputation ranking maintained by Symantec, which gets confused from time to time. Please see our support blog for more about it. In the event that you encounter this warning, we recommend that you disable Norton Antivirus to complete your download. It does not indicate the presence of a virus or malware in our installer.

Pagan Daybook 4: Pagan Daybook 4 has reached the end of its development cycle, and we don't anticiapte any further updates to it. To continue to enjoy the periodic enhancements, improvements and new features of Pagan Daybook, we recommend that users of Pagan Daybook 4 upgrade to the current Pagan Daybook 5 software while the half-price upgrade is available.

Pagan Daybook 3: Pagan Daybook 3 has been superceded by the current version 5 release. Its installers have been removed from distribution. We recommend that users of Pagan Daybook 3 register Pagan Daybook 5. Due to its increasing inability to get along with all the current releases of Windows, we are no longer able to provide replacement legacy installers for Pagan Daybook 3 to registered users. Not to put too fine a point on it, Windows has devised more ways to crash it than proponents of global warming have math errors.

Pagan Daybook 2: Pagan Daybook 2 has reached its end of life and succumbed to the siren song of the ages — or possibly to an old bootleg Jethro Tull CD — and it has been removed from distribution. We recommend that users of Pagan Daybook 2 register Pagan Daybook 5. Downloadable installers for Pagan Daybook 2 are no longer available.
