Wacky Holidays of 2022

As I was creating the new 2022 Wall Calendars I realized that I didn't want to list federal holidays on it. I generally like to decorate my calendar with stickers or doodles for big events like those and having that text there always gets in my way.

While I love how simple and clean the calendar pages are, it did feel like something was missing without them.

Enter: wacky holidays. I love to see those fun and silly holidays shared online and I have a few special favorites of my own (ahem, Mean Girls Day!) so naturally I did a deep dive into them. Here are a few funky little semi-relevant holidays you can celebrate and add to your own calendar.

I will be adding wacky holidays to all emails every month in 2022 if you'd rather have this list in bite sized chunks, enter your info here. There are waaaay more holidays to celebrate!
