Panel applets looks customizations (calendar)

Hi, new o XFCE (manjaro). I have 2 questions regarding calendar applet in the panel:

1. is there a way to customize the calendar view in the panel (the pop-up window that appears when clicking the time) - standard is very small and not looking great honestly saying. Is there a way to make it bigger (eg stretch similar like whisker menu) and additionally show eg icons with events?. Or is there a calendar applet that I can install similar to for example to kde or gnome to use?

2. there is a strange thing with the calendar's language - the entire desktop environment is set up with english as primary language, but the calendar pop-up is showing in a different language (language I use from time to time to write some documents). And there is no option to change it in the settings of the calendar window.

Not directly. It uses the GtkCalendar widget. You can theme this widget, using config values like:

calendar { font-size: 12pt; color: red; padding: 20px; }

...in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css (edit to suit), but this change will affect all GtkCalendar widgets that your system maybe using (not sure if there are any though).

There are 2 official calendar-like applets for Xfce (clock plugin, datetime plugin) that use GtkCalendar, but the usage and look and feel are similar. I'm not aware of getting other calendar applets there - other than maybe using the genmon plugin and yad. But that still uses the same GtkCalendar widget.

2. there is a strange thing with the calendar's language - the entire desktop environment is set up with english as primary language, but the calendar pop-up is showing in a different language (language I use from time to time to write some documents).

It should just your system language/locale. Are you switching languages on the fly?
