MySQL WHILE ... DO syntax error

I am getting the following error message:
ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'Declare i INT Default 0; While i < 36500 DO Insert Into Calendar (_Date, _Day, _' at line 1

I have set my delimiter:
Delimiter $$

And my code's below.

Can anyone spot my syntax error?  I'm trying to follow the example at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/while-statement.html


{edited to adjust formatting of code}
Declare i INT Default 0; 
While i < 36500 DO 
Insert Into Calendar (_Date, _Day, _Month, _Year) Values ('2009-01-01' + i, Day('2009-01-01'+i), Month('2009-01-01'+i), Year('2009-01-01' +i)); 
set i = i +1; 
End while;
