How to Fill-in and Use this Planning Overview:

You can print out the color-coded version and simply refer to it throughout the year as a reference point of what date are coming up to help you plan out your weeks. It’s filled in with the approximate dates, some holidays shift dates so they are best approximations.

The second sheet option is you can fill in the blank second sheet with your own dates. You can either fill in all your dates or get started with the dates you want to include, and then print and fill in the rest as you have confirmed dates!

Week-by-Week Holiday Planning Guide

I’ll include a quick overview of all the dates I’ve added in on the first page of my printable. These are of course just a guide that can help you in planning your own actual dates and plans in the blank spreadsheet.

I’ve also included a guide to help you know what days each of the holidays fall on to make it easier to fill in the spots. The 5th Sundays may slightly throw off the months, but it overall works out to be roughly the months as listed.
