Everyone has a special season and a favorite month. Whether it is when the leaves change color, when the sun beings to come out, when you begin to fall asleep to the sound of the rain or when you’re home for summer vacation and the beach is calling your name, we all find ourselves appreciative of a specific season. But with these seasons come holidays that allow us to spend more time with family, friends, or appreciate the world around us. Below are beautiful photos that can help inspire you to create the most meaningful calendar for your family.
New Years (January)
The new year means a time for change. A new years resolution is a must, while you watch the fireworks surrounded by friends who make you the happiest.

St. Patrick’s Day (March)
The day every child likes to go around and pinch whoever is not wearing green has finally come back. This is also the day that anyone with even the smallest percentage of Irish DNA comes out and proudly celebrates their heritage.

Earth Day (April)
We live on the most magical place. The beaches, trees, sun, streets, and cobblestones continue to amaze us. Earth day reminds us that we live on such a fragile place, and we must work together to keep it clean. For those earthy humans, Earth Day is a favorite celebration of the beautiful world we are lucky to call home.

Mothers Day (May)
We all love our mother. She is probably one of your best friends. But we rarely tell our mothers how much we appreciate them and all they do for us. From listening to our boy troubles, to consistently looking out for us, mothers have a special place in our heart.

Fathers Day (June)
Much like mothers day, we do not appreciate our fathers enough. From little league games to helping you build the crib for your newborn, your father has always been around to help and is most likely your very own superman.

4th of July (July)
America! There is nothing Americans love more than to celebrate America! Burgers, beer and babes, 4th of July is all about the sun shining, the freedom we have gained, and the BBQ we are about to feast into.

Friendship Day (August)
Everyone has that one friend who is their rock, their second half, their soul sista! Tell your friend how much you appreciate him/her and how much they truly mean to you!

Grandparents Day (September)
Our grandparents are our heros. They have gone through so much that we will never understand, have looked out for us, been there for us, supported us constantly. Grandparents are the most precious and loveable people in your family, and it is often times that we never truly tell them how important and influential they are to us.

The scariest of holidays has arrived! Candy, costumes, jack-o-lanterns and mummies, oh my! You head to the pumpkin patch, carve your pumpkins, and roast the seeds. Halloween is a time to scare, yet we find it to be quite the fun, movie-marathon, candy eating, haunted house scaring, creative holiday we all secretly enjoy!

The one time of the year your whole family has gathered up to feast on the Turkey your father and uncles worked so hard on. From California to New York, you find your family gathered around at the table, exchanging jokes, eating stuffing, and pouring on the gravy. Saying what we are thankful for, and poking fun at each other, watching the football game and reuniting with old friends who are back in town for just the same reason, this holiday is many people’s favorite time of the year.
Christmas songs, holiday cups, trees, lights, candycanes, and decorations are what makes you know that December is finally here! This holiday full of jingle bells and Santa’s Ho Ho Ho call for a lovely night in with family, presents and grandmas peppermint hot cocoa.
