The 2021 Daily Deathiversaries Calendar
... because 2020 can't end soon enough.


The 2021 Daily Deathiversaries calendar will help you remember and honor your favorite celebrities and well-known names from entertainment history on the anniversary of their passing. For each and every day of the year, we identify a celebrity who died on that day, the year they died, and the cause of death. And, for each month, we feature an original gravesite photo for one of the celebrities for that month. And, as always, the calendar includes all new names for 2021!

The 2021 Daily Deathiversaries calendar features iconic names from years gone by -- James Cagney, Jean Harlow, Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Joan Crawford, Shirley Temple, Loretta Young, Harpo Marx, William Powell, Peter Lorre, Ava Gardner, Mae West, and all three Andrews Sisters -- and more recent departures from 2020 -- Buck Henry, Kirk Douglas, Jerry Stiller, Fred Willard, Little Richard, Carl Reiner, Kelly Preston, Naya Rivera, Chadwick Boseman and Diana Rigg -- and hundreds more film and TV performers, directors, singers, writers, comedians and other legends (or near-legends) of entertainment. And probably a few people who will make you think, "Gosh, I didn't even know they were dead." It's a great conversation piece, and an attractive, artistic addition to any home, work cubicle, place of business, rec room or personal mausoleum. And it makes a great gift!

The 2021 Daily Deathiversaries calendar, featuring celebrity deathiversaries for all 365 days of the year, is still only $15, which includes all postage, handling, fees, taxes, tariffs, etc., for all U.S. orders.

RAQs (Rarely Asked Questions)

Q. Why did you pick Person X for a particular date, when Person Y also died on that date? Person Y is much more famous / important / popular / beloved / interesting / etc.?

A. No offense intended to Person Y, but sometimes it's a difficult choice between a bunch of people. We generally focus primarily on movie and TV people, and we usually don't include someone who was on last year's calendar. If Person Y isn't on the calendar this year, they might have been on it last year. Or maybe next year.

Q. Who's that person? I've never heard of them! Why are they on my calendar?!

A. Calm down, Skippy. Sadly, we can't honor the passing of a universally acclaimed entertainment superstar on every day of the year. And sometimes, that's intentional. If you don't know who someone is, look them up. You might be glad you did, and you'll learn something. And everyone is important to someone.

Q. Who took the grave pictures?

A. We did.

Q. They're quite lovely.

A. Thank you very much. Do you have any other questions?

Q. Why is the cause of death sometimes listed as "unknown"? Surely, there must be a reason they died. Is there a mystery surrounding their passing? Should there be an investigation? Should someone call the police?

A. It's a calendar. It's not a legal document. In almost all cases, there is a legitimate and scientific reason why someone died. But, even for a celebrity, that reason isn't always announced. Perhaps the family wants to retain a little privacy, or they might think it's none of your business. And we respect that.

Q. Isn't this a little intrusive? Do we really need to know the exact cause of death for a beloved celebrity?

A. Do you need to know? Probably not. But we're including the cause of death, if we know it. Why? Believe it or not, even beloved celebrities are people, too. They have the same strengths, weaknesses and human frailties we all do. And, like all of us eventually will, they die. In fact, for some people dealing with physical or mental difficulties, it might actually be comforting to know that a famous person had the same struggles, and they're not alone.

Q. Would people at work get creeped out if I hung this calendar in my cubicle at work?

A. Probably not. It's not scary or weird. (Well, it's not scary, anyway.) In fact, it might even start some interesting conversations. Whenever people see the calendar for the first time, they always, always check and see who died on their birthday. And if it's someone they don't know, you can tell them their story, since you've already looked them up (see Question 2). Who knows? Maybe you'll find a kindred spirit and make some new friends.

Q. Do you think anyone is still reading down this far on the page?

A. Probably not.
