SSI snippet, display holidays and events with dates

For some reason I can't post to the tips & tricks board, so here it goes instead.

SSI-type snippet to show events and "Holidays" (which I use as important dates) for use on a frontpage or the like. Get rid of the first two lines and you can use it in your template instead if you don't like how SMF displays the upcoming calendar. The main advantage of it is that it displays holidays with dates.

I use this code as a "custom tag" for hxxp:www.cmsmadesimple.org [nonactive], which appears on the frontpage of my CMSMS site. Thought someone might


require("./smf/SSI.php");

global $modSettings, $scripturl;


if (isset($modSettings['cal_today_event'])) {

echo "<div class=\"calendareventsarea\">";
echo "<div class=\"calendarheader\">Upcoming Events:</div>\n";


$events = unserialize($modSettings['cal_today_event']);

foreach ($events as $date=>$events_day_array) {
foreach ($events_day_array as $event) {
if ($event['topic'] > 0) {
echo '<div class="calendareventtitle"><a href="' . $scripturl . '?topic=' . $event['topic'] . '.0' . '">' . $event['title'] . "</a><br>\n";
}
else {
echo '<div class="calendareventtitle">' . $event['title'] . "<br>\n";
}

echo '<span class="calendardate">' . date("l M jS", strtotime($date)) . "</span></div>\n";
}
}

echo "</div>\n";
}
else {
echo "<div class=\"calendarheader\">Upcoming Events:</div>\n";
echo "<div class=\"calendarempty\">No events</div>\n";
}


if (isset($modSettings['cal_today_holiday'])) {

echo "<div class=\"calendardatearea\">";
echo "<div class=\"calendarheader\">Important Dates:</div>\n";

$holidays = unserialize($modSettings['cal_today_holiday']);

foreach ($holidays as $date=>$holiday_day_array) {

foreach ($holiday_day_array as $holiday) {
echo '<div class="calendardatetitle">';
echo '<span class="calendardate">' . date("D M jS", strtotime($date)) . ": </span>\n";
echo $holiday;
echo "</div>\n";
}
}

echo "</div>\n";
}
else {
echo "<div class=\"calendarheader\">Important Dates:</div>\n";
echo "<div class=\"calendarempty\">No Dates</div>\n";
}


Here's a stylesheet to use to get you started..


<style>
.calendardate {
color: #808080;
font-size: x-small;
font-weight: normal;
}

.calendarheader {
padding: 4px;
font-size: small;
font-weight: bold;
background-color: #336699;
color: white;
}

.calendardatetitle {
font-size: small;
font-weight: normal;
}

.calendareventtitle {
padding-top: 10px;
padding-bottom: 10px;
font-size: large;
font-weight: bold;

}

.calendarempty {
margin-left: 20px;
color: #808080;
font-size: small;
}

.calendareventsarea {
border: 5px solid #339966;
padding: 5px;
margin-bottom: 5px;
}

.calendardatearea {
padding: 5px;
}
</style>

this is almost exactly what I have been looking for, but it is not displaying my events as they are too far away in the future.

Does anyone know if there is a way to call ALL (x number of ) upcoming events regardless of date like the ssi_recentEvents command and still have it display the date like this?
