Content Worthy Holidays Remaining in 2020 For Your Social Media Posts

Creating unique & relevant social media content should be one of your top priorities if you're looking to strategically grow your online presence. One of the best ways to be strategic with your content is by keeping an eye out for upcoming holidays that might appeal to your audience, which gives you the opportunity to plan content ahead of time. Be it a traditional day like "Fourth Of July", or a goofy day like "World Emoji Day", holidays are a great way to connect with your audience!


Which holidays should your business celebrate on social media?


Even though there are several holidays worth celebrating, not all of them are relevant to your brand. It's important for you to be selective and mindful about which holidays your audience already celebrates (or might be inclined to celebrate), so you can stay aligned with their interests. For example, if you are an outdoor lifestyle-oriented company, you might want to create a social media post celebrating "Ride Your Bike to Work Day" or "Love a Tree Day", whereas something like "Video Games Day" or "Hamburger Day" might not be an appropriate holiday for your brand to celebrate. Or let's say you're a beauty-oriented business, you might want to create content for "National Smile Day" or "Love Your Red Hair Day", whereas holidays like "Online Learning Day" or "World UFO Day" might not align with the values of your company. That being said, we want to help you prep your content ahead of time, so, here are some of the remaining holidays in 2020 that might be worth celebrating on social media:
