Not a direct answer, but have you found the org-contacts package?


It supports the BIRTHDAY property. See the note at bottom of the link above about how it integrates with the agenda.

I am trying to use org-mode for birthdays. I have tried those two entries:

* Calendar
** Birthdays
*** Somebody
    SCHEDULED: <1970-05-20 Mo +1y>
*** Somebody1
 %%(org-anniversary 1970  5 20) Somebody1 is %d years old

The first entry is shown in the agenda for the current day as:

  Calendar:   Sched.358x:  Somebody

I find this a bit strange. I want a reminder a couple of days before the
event. But I don't want an everday reminder of how days have gone past the
last event.

The second entry doesn't appear at all in the agenda.

Any ideas what I am missing here?
