    Is there a way to reinstall Calendar, from the App Store or something (didn't see it there). It's acting weird, each day has two dates at the top, on the right is the correct date, and on the left is some other date. (It seems like it's reading two months at once or something).

    I haven't been able to find out how to reinstall. thanks!

    No... the Calendar app is part of the OS X install.

    That's what i was afraid of. Anybody know what to do when an app that's part of the OS X install gets screwed up/corrupted etc?

    Usually it would not be the app itself that is corrupted, but more like the file (plist) that saves the settings than can become corrupted.

    First quit Calendar. Then triple click the line below to select the path then right click and in the services menu select reveal in Finder. Then in that preferences folder scroll down to com.apple.iCal.plist and delete that file. Now restart the computer then open Calendar. That will put the Calendar preferences back to default and may help.

    Code:
    ~/Library/Preferences
