Try the "Hebcal Interactive Jewish Calendar" at www.hebcal.com/hebcal

Just type in the "Year", "Entire Year" and then check "Gregorian", and "All default
Holidays".

You will get a list like this.

...
Sun 23-Dec-1894 Chanukah: 2 Candles
Mon 24-Dec-1894 Chanukah: 3 Candles
Tue 25-Dec-1894 Chanukah: 4 Candles
...

If you want it to look like a modern day calendar then also click on "Display
visual calendar grid"

The Hebrew date extends >from sunset to sunset, so strictly there are two secular
dates for every Hebrew date and if the Hebrew date of death is given, for instance,
the corresponding secular date of death will depend on the time of day at which
the person died.

Anybody whose family member died near nightfall will have been questioned as to the
exact time of death in order to determine the precise Hebrew date of death.

The only problem with this approach, is that currently the JOS Calendar only lists
the first day of some of the Holidays, and assumes the user knows that the first
candle for Chanukah is actualy lit on the prior night. Whereas the other calenders
like the "Hebcal Interactive Jewish Calendar" lists which candles are lit on each
night.

However, the JOS calender is easy to use and I personaly use is for all Gregorian
to Jewish date conversions.
