Does anyone know how to change the color of the Birthdays calendar that is generated in iCal from Contacts?  Its default color is a large organizational annoyance for me because it is the same color I have used for years and years for another category of calendar event.


I cannot change it from the "Get Info" box within iCal, as I can with other calendars, because there is no color choice pull down menu available in the Get Info box. 


I cannot change it from within iCloud Calendars (accessed through Safari), because when I click the Edit/Color dot to a new color, it immediately reverts back to the previous color.  I tried clicking it over 15 times...always reverts.


I searched through the forums, but could not locate any answer that was recent enough to apply to Mountain Lion.  Thanks for any help you can give me.
