Comparative religion filter: Seeking a calendar, chart or similar that takes a seasonal approach to listing/identifying religious events, festivals and important occasions for major world religions.

We are interested in beginning discussions about religions with our 7-year-old. Our goal is to take a comparative religion approach to this effort, not focusing on any one religion in particular, but talking about the "big stories" in general. We are NOT seeking specific religious texts! The twist is that we'd like to tie things in to the seasonal (calendar) year as much as possible. We do not, however, have more than a cursory knowledge of the religious calendars of the world. Can you help us find a visual / chart that compares the religious seasons and calendars of multiple major religions?
