Address Book lets you store all kinds of information about the people in your life, including birthdays. Keeping track of those birthdays, however, can be a pain - unless you let iCal display them for you.

Address Book can share birthday information with iCal, so each birthday you've added to Address Book appears in your schedule. The feature is off by default, but it's easy to activate. Here's how:

iCal's Birthdays calendar from Address Book.
