How to completely remove Birthdays from Google Calendar


When looking at appointments today I saw a birthday appointment for someone I barely knew. Strange. I’d already deactivated iCal and Facebook birthday calendars […] But today, there was a new calendar in my Gmail group called “Birthdays”.


Upon further investigation, I learned that the Birthday calendar displays birthdays of people in your Google+ circles and Google Contacts.


Lovely! A calendar that lists the birthdays of people I’ve emailed once or people I’m connected to on a social network that I wouldn’t use if Google didn’t force me to register for to do practically anything on Google.

Turns out it’s quite a maze to actually remove that calendar. Smells like a Roach Motel.
