278 Social Media Holidays for Your 2021 Content Calendar Do you celebrate International Cat Day, Pizza Day, or Talk Like a Pirate Day? There are a plethora of observance days worldwide during which marketers can share content relevant to their industries, get involved in a movement, or simply generate more awareness. But odds are, you probably don't acknowledge these days until you see your favorite brand posting about it. These social media "holidays" are a fun way to connect with new and existing followers who share an affinity for a specific food, fictional character, or pet.

Downloadable Holiday Calendar To help you keep track of all these unique holidays, here's a Social Media Holiday Google Calendar.
