Everygirl’s 2022 Holiday Calendar

At The Everygirl, we take the holidays very seriously, but each of us has a different idea of ​​the perfect holiday season. Some of us are celebrating family vacations, others are planning to binge on Hallmark movies until January, some are traveling for the first time in what seems like forever, and others are channeling Kevin McCallister and enjoying the comfort solo nights.

No matter what the season looks like for you this year, we’ve put together a holiday calendar to give you something to look forward to every day from now until New Year’s Eve, because we could all use a little more of festive joy in our lives. Check out these 61 holiday activities, add them to your calendar or personal planner, and get ready to soak up all the holiday spirit this season has to offer.
