This Automator Action creates a birthday calendar in iCal from the contacts in Address Book. Unlike the built-in birthday calendar in iCal, this action allows you to set an alarm for each birthday.
If you want to customize your event or reminder text you can use the following placeholders:
%lastname% %firstname% %yearofbirth% %age% %birthday%
