December 2022 – Holidays and Observations

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, or so the old song goes. It’s December, the final month of the calendar year. You may or may not be celebrating some major holidays this month, but one thing is for certain, there are a plethora of food and drink related holidays this month for you to choose from in addition to or in place of any other celebrations and holidays that may be going on.

Below you’ll find some (mostly US based) month, week, and daylong celebrations/observations. We picked those we think fit the content of this site. Maybe we missed some, maybe we added some you don’t think belong. Let us know!

I will be filling these in as soon as possible so you can learn more about each observance or holiday, but for now just enjoy the list.

Check out our other side, deedni, for a list of Money/Tech/Business related holidays and observations in December.
