There is nothing worse than forgetting your caregiver’s birthday. You can add birthdays to Google Calendar to make sure you see those important days. If you decide to hide them or remove them later, it’s just as easy.

Note: For Google, you can’t currently add birthdays from Facebook to Google Calendar.
