the Office 365 personal calendar, you can create events
to remember your important days. As the name implies it
is a personal so no one have access on it. Only you can
see what you have created.
As opposite a team calendar allows access for selected users,
so you can share event information and read what other team
members are sharing.
In this tutorial in the SharePoint Online from Scratch
series, Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of

team calendar and add it to a SharePoint page.
This calendar will be shared by all users who have access
to the page and can be used to show holidays, leaves, delivery
dates and other information that is interesting for the
whole group. Peter also shows how to enable versioning,
so that you can track every change in the calendar.
