Social Media Holiday Calendar

Do you have your social media holiday calendar planned?

As a business, you wouldnโ€™t want to miss out on the enormous number of leads or engagements you can get on different holidays.

Now, multiple holidays are scattered over the calendar, giving you multiple chances to create stellar content, run contests, giveaways, and whatnot to interact with your audience.

Some holidays are officially recognized holidays by the government, while some are cooked up by savvy marketers and the whacky world of social media looking to create a buzz.

But which one is important for you? Obviously, not every holiday will work for you. You must find and leverage the holidays relevant to your niche audience and brand.

Thatโ€™s why we have curated a social media holiday calendar that lists all the holidays scattered across every month of 2023.

Scroll down to see a month-wise list of each holiday and determine which holidays work best for you.

4 Next Steps to Effectively Use Your Social Media Holiday Calendar

Now that you’re well-versed with all the holidays, observances, and awareness days, what’s the next step?

Seize the opportunity to engage with your audience by crafting impeccable posts tailored to these special occasions.

Itโ€™s not that easy, though.

When it comes to holiday posting, everyone will be doing it, even your competitors. Thatโ€™s why you must take several steps to ensure your content aligns with the holidays and resonates with your audience.

Here are the next steps you should consider:

1. Chart Out a Content Plan

After choosing the relevant holidays, start planning your content around them. Decide which type of content you will be creating. Is your post going to be an image, video, or text?

You also need to figure out how you are going to connect your brand with that certain holiday and determine the specific message you aim to convey for each occasion.

2. Know the Right Social Media Specs

Itโ€™s a no-brainer that you need to create visually appealing graphics, images, or videos tailored to each holiday if you want to stand out from the crowd.

But something marketers forget in a hurry is that every platform has different sizes and specs for images and videos. Thatโ€™s why knowing the right specification is important.

You canโ€™t risk publishing images and videos that appear stretched and cropped. You can use our social media image sizes guide and social media video sizes guide to always post right-sized posts.

3. Craft Compelling Captions and Relevant Hashtags

Creating amazing visuals is not enough; you need to write compelling captions as well. Your caption plays a major role in driving users to take action.

The role of caption becomes more important when posting on awareness days. A killer caption can turn your post into something that really speaks to your followers, showing them you care about the cause.

So, take a second to ensure your caption chimes with that holiday vibe and hits just the right note.

On the other hand, hashtags play a vital part in increasing the visibility of your post. You need to strategically plan your holiday hashtag marketing.

Adding relevant hashtags lets your posts pop up when someone searches for that specific holiday or theme.

From general tags like #Thanksgiving to more specific and quirky ones like #UglySweaterDay, you need to thoughtfully add the hashtags, ensuring your posts get the attention they deserve.

4. Use a Social Media Scheduling Tool

You have probably found many holidays that align with your brand. Thatโ€™s a good thing!

But the blessings come with their own challenges. It will be a herculean task to maintain a consistent posting schedule across multiple holidays.

Of course, our social media holiday calendar helps you pre-plan things, but executing these plans in advance is only possible through a social media scheduling tool.

You can use a social media scheduling tool like SocialPilot to schedule your posts in advance. This ensures that your content is posted at optimal times and you don’t miss out on any holiday.

SocialPilotโ€™s scheduling calendar enables you to create and schedule days, weeks, and even a yearโ€™s social media holiday posts in one go.

Ready With Your Social Media Holiday Planning?

Holidays present an excellent opportunity to connect with your audience on social media.

Even audiences wait for their favorite brands to come up with discounts, giveaways, contests, or use the platforms to speak up on awareness days that resonate deeply with them.

Thatโ€™s why having a social media holiday calendar for 2023 is like having a secret weapon. From official holidays, observances, and awareness days to those fun, out-of-the-box celebrations, we have packed every occasion in our calendar.

Itโ€™s time to add these holidays to your social media calendar and start making some content.

Happy posting!
