I’ve included the following in this post with the Social Media Content Calendar:

Why use Social Media Holidays?

Creating and curating content can be hard. It’s relentless and sometimes you need a little lighthearted content to boost engagement. Let’s face it, we all love quotes, images and videos around special days throughout the year. It’s content that wins, again and again.

So make sure you include some social media holidays in your content and use our content calendar “infographic” to help remind you, then click through any time to see the full list on this Social Media Content Calendar.

2019 Social Media Holidays Calendar – Infographic

The following infographic covers social media holidays from January – June, 2019.  It’s not too long to be overwhelming and it’s not too short that you’ll run out of ideas.

There’s loads more holidays than we’ve listed on the infographic for January to June.  They’re all listed  below the infographic, including hashtags.

How to use the Social Media Holidays Content Calendar:

Here are a few ways you can use the ideas on the infographic or in the list below:

  1. Create images based around the holiday – it could be a quote, meme, saying, tip or image with text overlay. Use my favourite social media graphic tool, Easil, to help you.
  2. Create a short video around the social media holiday. Is it Pizza Day? Maybe make a short video with some pizza fun facts. Use my favourite video tool, Wave to help you. 
  3. Create a fun GIF to celebrate the holiday you are sharing. Use my favourite GIF creation tools, Easil or Giphy to create a GIF.
  4. Create an email based around a social media holiday theme – ie St Patrick’s Day or Mother’s Day. Send your subscribers a special deal for those holidays.
  5. Create an offer on social media that you can share with your audience.

You are only really limited to your imagination when you use the Social Media Content Calendar!
