December National Days

December National Days

Using National Days in your social media content plan is an easy way to tap into topics that will be trending on the day of the post.  You can use national days to have fun, or the opposite to tap into serious issues and show your support for various causes and issues.

I often refer to the website NATIONAL DAY CALENDAR to research what national days might suit my audience, and to use for my clients.

Remember to use the corresponding hashtags as they are often trending on Instagram and Twitter.

National Day posts tend to get more reach and engagement and are a great "social" style of post where you are authentically trying to connect with your audience.

DECEMBER NATIONAL DAYS you might be interested in posting about include (but are not limited to)

  • Dec 4 - National Cookie Day
  • Dec 7 - Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day
  • Dec 12 - Gingerbread House Day
  • Dec 17 - National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day
  • Dec 21 - Winter Solstice
  • Dec 24 - Christmas Eve
  • Dec 25 - Christmas Day
  • Dec 26 - Boxing Day
  • Dec 31 - New Years Eve

There is a LOT going on in December when it comes to social media, both from a holiday sales & shopping perspective and for the holidays, and by participating in these conversations you will increase your reach and engagement and connect on a deeper level with your audience.
