With leap years springing up out of nowhere and groundhogs deciding whether or not to skip the month of March, keeping track of dates can be a challenge. Stay on top of time with today's Groupon: for $12, you get the 2012 wall calendar from The Economist (a $20.98 value, including shipping).

Inveterate cartoonist for The Economist Kevin Kallaugher packs the prized publication's 12"x20" wall calendar with detailed illustrations that thrill and awe eyes. Each month weaves together a unique collection of notable and obscure global holidays and traditions, the birth of cultural magnates, and political and cultural milestones into memorable work of arts. Example pieces include the month of April, which merges Joseph Stalin's rise to power, the discovery of Easter Island, and China's annual kite festival into a cartoonish pastiche that both stimulates and educates, like a scratch n' sniff chart of Canadian Prime Ministers.

The Economist

The Economist's globe-spanning scope, comprehensive analysis, and unflinching grasp on world issues make it required reading to stay up to date on world news, politics, and business. First published in 1843, the publication still casts itself as a newspaper despite its magazine-style layout; each issue covers the main events of the week, with analysis and opinion sprinkled across its pages for good measure. A conversational tone and anonymity remain calling cards of The Economist's writers, keeping with the belief that what is written is more important than who writes it.
