mkdir doesn't create a file, it creates a directory (hence the name, make-directory = mkdir)

Code:
cal > file
would do it without pipes

Also, if you want a full year calendar

cal 2013 > file

For more cal options type man cal

Command mkdir is not a file creation command but it creates a new empty directory. See:
Code:
~$ man mkdir
In order to get calander in a file with file creation, as already said above, just do:
Code:
~$ cal [option] > filename
OR
~$ cat filename; cal [option] > filename
