Angry Calendar Widget - unwanted info!!!

Someone PLEASE help me! My calendar built into the phone, I have selected ONLY "My Calendar." In my actual calendar screen, only my work schedule shows, as I programmed it... on widgets (yes, plural) it is showing Facebook birthdays. I DO NOT need to know EVERYONE'S birthday. I want this information GONE. I just want my widget to tell me the next day that I work, nothing else.

I have even gone into the Facebook app and disabled birthday notifications. (And, to go even further in depth, I never synced my contacts to Facebook, either. Although, information traveled through my SD card from a Droid RAZR Maxx... Still can't figure out what the issue is, and frankly, I have OCD, and this is absolutely DRIVING ME INSANE!!!!)

Someone, anyone, please, PLEASE know how to fix this.

Open the calendar app. Select the Calendars tab at the top of the screen. Uncheck Facebook. Hit done.

Like I said, the only thing I have selected in this particular menu, is "My Calendar." I disabled Facebook, Gmail, and all of that mess, but it's still showing up on my widget. Not on the app, but on the widget.

You can always try a more aggressive approach. Delete the widget and reboot your phone. When your phone starts up, add the widget to your home screen again.

I'm having the same issue. And to top it off the same birthdays show up 4 times in the widget.



The only place I have contact info is locally on my phone in the contacts app. That is where it is getting the birthdays from. And the only calendar I have selected is "My Calendar". If I uncheck it the birthdays in the widget will disappear (along with all my other events). I don't have anything synched with any email or cloud system.




If I look at my calendar the birthdays are nowhere to be found.



However if I go back to the widget and click on the birthday I will be taken to its event screen.



From here I can delete them one by one. I guess after a year they will be all gone. But I'll probably have a new phone by then anyway.

OK I've figured out that the birthdays are coming from the "Contacts' birthdays" calendar at the bottom of the list here:



Even though it is unchecked the widget is still showing them. This is the only calendar for which it does this behavior. I have many other calenders that I can check and uncheck and the widget will show or hide them appropriately.

If you enable "Contacts' birthdays" in your main calendar app you can see all the events and delete them one by one. (In my case I have 4 events for each birthday as mentioned before). I'm guessing this is some sync issue from long ago.
