Why Holidays Make Great Social Media Posts
Back in my corporate marketing days, when I managed the social media channels for a $150 million business, I rejoiced when a holiday came around.
It gave me a built-in reason to create content, which made my job a lot easier.
People are already in party mode and looking for things to do. Why not help them out by giving them ideas for celebrating?
Including holidays in your social media content is an easy way to increase engagement and reach. People are already talking about the holiday, so you just need to join the conversation.
You can use holiday-related hashtags, post photos celebrating the holiday, run contests, or offer discounts related to the holiday.
Not sure how to get started? Here are some ideas:
- Share recipes for favorite dishes served on the holiday
- Give tips on how to decorate for the holiday
- Offer advice on entertaining during the holiday season
- Share photos of employees or customers celebrating the holiday
- Run a contest related to the holiday
- Offer a discount on products or services related to the holiday
With this list of November holidays, you will be able to easily come up with social media content ideas for November that will resonate with your audience and help you increase engagement and reach on your social channels.
Holiday posts are easy to create, and they always receive more “likes” than any other post.
Not many people will engage with a post about a company news release or an industry article, but many who see a post wishing everyone a Happy World Kindness Day will give it a “like.”
For a business owner or marketer, holiday posts not only increase your social media engagement, but they’re also easy posts to create that fill your followers with positive emotions.
When sharing a holiday post, always include an image or video with your status update, no matter what platform you’re using.
That’s because posts with an image get 2.3 times more engagement than posts without an image. (source) Also, tack on a holiday-themed hashtag to make it easy for people to find your content, and use location tagging if you have a physical storefront.
Including an image with your post is the easiest way to DOUBLE engagement and it’s why the Social Media Content Club, our industry-leading social media software, is FULL of eye-catching images.

Holiday Hashtags for Social Media
When celebrating holidays on social media, it’s important to include the relevant hashtag(s) for that holiday in your post.
Hashtags will increase the reach of your post, exposing your business to a larger audience.
To learn why and how to use hashtags on social media, read: 210 Daily Hashtags for Social Media.
Hashtags are such an essential piece to your success on social media that I’ve done the research for you.
Most of the holidays listed below include a hashtag for social media.
However, for best results, you’ll want to use 3 – 5 hashtags relevant to that holiday in your post.
If you’re pressed for time, the Social Media Content Club does the hashtag research for you and provides 3 popular and relevant hashtags for all major holidays.
Now that you know those helpful tips, let’s jump into the list of Holidays.
