National Holidays with Promotions and Mentions

Make sure your annual planning starts with a marketing calendar filled with traditional and wacky holidays, major sporting events, awards shows, and cause movements. As you’ll see, there are so many special days, weeks, and months to remember.

Along with the fun of celebrating “national beer day” and “bring your dog to work day”, you’ll want to also be sure to recognize the obvious, serious holidays like “Armed Forces Day”, and so on. Staying up-to-date with relative, seasonal topics like holidays will help your marketing stay fresh and engaging.
