By now, whichever way you wave, Social Media has surely become part of your daily life. Different generations, backgrounds and cultures, all surfing through different platforms with one ultimate goal, to stay connected.

On the other hand, if Social Media is your bread and butter, now is the time when your life will start to get a little bit more hectic. This is the time to start jam packing your social media calendars with campaign launches, National Holidays to celebrate online and at the office, important events, key dates, milestones and the list goes on!

Of course, some months are busier than others depending on the nature of the business you are in. I currently work in iGaming and must admit that social media was a lot easier to handle when I was in the fashion industry! In my current role, although mostly very busy, I tend to find more days when I am in need of social content to share, which is why Social Media Holidays are a thing!

Below is a list of fun “Social Media Holidays” with a universal appeal and potential to create posts or campaigns. This should make your life a lot easier as I am hoping it will mine. My current role is “Employer Brand Manager” which involves a lot of internal activities. These events will entice my colleagues to share their own posts, which in return will create more brand awareness for the company

Our people are the best influencers when it comes to talent acquisition. It is always nice to hear about how good a company is to work for, directly from its employees. Followers can see that there is a sense of community at our work place through their online activity and such micro holidays will break routines.

Enjoy the list and remember to make it relevant to your business when creating your “Social Media Calendar“!
