How is gremind different from tkremind? tkremind is a tk frontend to
'remind'. 'remind' can do all sorts of reminders, holiday skips ect.

be iconified.

Being a Tk application tkremind is naturally ugly. When I tried out tkremind I didn't really like it. On the other hand, gremind rather uses the gnomeish approach with a rather slick and intuitive interface. Its simple interface and the fact that it's built upon GTK+ instead of Tk might get some people to prefer it over tkremind.
