What is Google Calender?

Google Calender is an online service, sponsored by Google, that functions very similarly to a real calender. This program allows you to post important events on your own calender as long as you have a Google account. If you don't have an Google account, you can sign up for one for free on their website. Once you've signed up for a free account, you will be directed to your new Google Calender. .
