175+ random holidays to celebrate with your toddler in 2022

Happy {almost} 2022! What a ride 2021 was. Not like a fun one, though. But one that you go on because everyone else is and you don’t want to seem lame and then you hate most of it and then puke when you get off of it. You feel me?

One of my goals for 2022 is to celebrate more. Days can sort of melt together and feel like repeating the same day over and over again – especially as a stay at home mom to a toddler and a baby. Why not spunk things up a bit with some silly little things to celebrate?

On my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days, one of the items is to celebrate 10 random holidays. I want to do more than just 10. I want to FIND reasons to celebrate, and so I started looking for random holidays! I was starting to compile quite a little list of dates I thought would be fun to celebrate with a 2-year-old and thought I’d share it here on my blog. While I definitely will not be celebrating all of them (nor did I want to create an exhaustive list of EVERY random holiday), here is a list of some fun random holidays to celebrate with your toddler!

A LOT of them have to do with food, which is a super easy thing.. add it to your meal plan and voila! You’ve celebrated something! 😉
