What is this?

The Holy Pastafarian Colander is what is known to landlubbers as a calendar (referred to by pastafarian dads everywhere as the "New Year Sieve" 😉). It contains all the Pastafarian holidays for your piratic enjoyment 😊 (Note: one each and every day of the year!)

You can find PDF versions in A4 and Letter format and editions with either Sunday or Monday as the first day of the week.

There is also a link so you can import The Holy Pastafarian Colander into your digital calendar, so you can see what holiday you might want to be celebrating.

Who made this?


The Holy Pastafarian Colander is the brainchild of Ned "Bruce" Gallagher, an Australian pirate and pastafarian who has been roaming the interwebs for years in the service of Our Noodly Creator. Every year this semi-mad adherent of the holy pasta assembles ideas via the official Church of the FSM Facebook page for the coming year's apocalypses and holy days.


The artist for the cover image of the 2024 edition of the colander is Rev. Mac Michael of Philippine Pastafarian Church (also known as Mac Adornado) who has created the image "He's got the whole world in his noodly embrace".
