Add some style to your desktop with the above clock/calendar widget by ~jpope777.

The reversible widget displays a unique animated clock face on one side and calendar on the reverse. A LED ‘button’ allows you to toggle between the modes although the calendar view has an auto-timeout that will switch back to the clock after 10 seconds.
