Correct spelling, explanation: calendar derives from kalendae and kalendarium, which are words of Latin origin and had the meaning of account book. Later the word entered Old French too and it looked as calendier. Calendar entered English in the times of Middle English and it hasn’t changed its form until today.
Definition of calendar:
1. noun – refers to a table or book with all the days, weeks, and months of the year, which is helpful in planning everyday arrangements,
There is an old calendar on the wall, which is constantly mixing me up.
Collocations with calendar:
A few common collocations with calendar include: busy calendar, full calendar, and social calendar.

I wanted to make an appointment at doctor Robin’s office, but he has a full calendar this week.

Incorrect spelling, explanation: the word calendar causes a spelling problem as the pronunciation of the word suggests that there is an -e letter at the end of the word instead of an -a letter. As a result, it is often misspelled as
calender. It is wrong, though, and the only correct spelling is calendar.
