There are plenty of national holidays and important events that fill your calendar up, but then again some months are busier than others and we can go through long stretches of time without much to celebrate. We are finished with all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, as well as some much needed time off, and now I’m already feeling like I need something to look forward to. A vacation or another holiday, anyone?
One fun solution is to celebrate micro holidays, so you’ll never run out of reasons to celebrate! You’ve probably heard of some of these before. These aren’t exactly real holidays, not even the fake Hallmark holidays everyone loves to hate (I’m looking at you Sweetest Day), and you won’t find them on the calendar. Nevertheless, micro holidays occur every day of the year, multiple per day, and have gained momentous traction on social media. And they’re just fun and wacky with endless creative opportunities!
If you’re looking to expand your content on social media, utilizing select micro holidays that are relevant to your brand and coordinates with your overall tone tone offers new ways to engage with your audience too.
So I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite micro holidays that I’m especially jazzed about! I don’t know about you, but it feels pretty exciting to add a few extra reasons to celebrate in 2018 to the calendar! P.S. A ton of these have legitimate reasons of existence or at least timing like napping day is after daylight savings and wear your pajamas to work is after tax day … just in case you were wondering. P.S.S. Anyone now inspired to develop their own micro holiday, or just me?
