You can use the functions of the Python module calendar to print the calendar of an entire year.

Approach 1: TextCalendar(n), 'n' can be used to set the first day of the calendar. 0 - Mon, 1 - Tue, 2 - Wed, 3 - Thu, 4 - Fri, 5 - Sat, 6 - Sun.

>>> import calendar
>>> calendar.TextCalendar(0).pryear(2020)

Approach 2

>>> import calendar
>>> calendar.setfirstweekday(calendar.MONDAY)
>>> calendar.prcal(2020)

The output will look like this:

                                 2020

      January                   February                   March
