How Do I Search My iPhone 5 Calendar

I like to use my calendar because it doesn’t force me to remember all of my upcoming plans, which can easily be forgotten. But it also puts you in a kind of “set it and forget it’ frame of mind, where you enter an event then almost immediately forget about it. So if you schedule a short out of town trip and someone asks you about it, it can be difficult to remember when it was scheduled. But you can quickly find out by using the calendar search function.
