Help with Google Calendar

I have been through the Google Calendar docs but am having a tough time figuring out how to utilize it. I have a calendar setup and working in home assistant, I just can’t find out how to set automations using it.

I want to use this to set a condition for my Christmas Lights. I have a calendar entry named “Christmaslights” in the calendar from November 20th to January 20th, repeating annually. I’d like to add a condition to my Christmas lights automation that only turns them on if it is between those dates, during the calendar entry. So far, I’ve only been able to get an automation working if there is ANY calendar entry. How can I set the condition to just use specific entries like my “Christmaslights” entry?

Like I just posted on this topic

Have a look at my post from last July of how I used calendars for lights.

Thank you for the help! I was able to get this to work using your guide.

Glad it helped.
