278 social media holidays for your 2021 content calendar. [+Template]

Do you celebrate International Cat Day, Pizza Day, or talk like Pirate Day?

There are many days of celebration around the world during which marketers can share content related to their industries, join a movement, or simply create more awareness. But there are problems, you probably won’t recognize these days unless you see your favorite brand posting about it.

This social media “vacation” is a fun way to connect with new and existing followers who belong to a particular diet, fictional character, or pet.

Although we do not recommend sharing content on social media and then adding unrelated holiday hashtags, these holidays can be an opportunity to promote your brand in a relevant way. Failure to do so may result in you missing out on valuable opportunities where your brand may be involved in a conversation between your target audience.

To help you plan a trending vacation, we’ve created a list that you can bookmark, as well as a downloadable calendar so you can get automatic reminders.

To help you keep track of all these unique holidays, here is a social media Google Calendar of Holidays.

Aside from the 2021 holidays, we’ve also set annual recurrence dates on the calendar – either on the exact date they occur or on Saturdays in the month.

But it’s a great starting point for social media marketers who want to know more about what’s trending and how they can plan their content that will be fun and interesting on social platforms.
