The weather is starting to cool down after a blistering summer, kids are going back to school (if they haven’t already!), and things seem a bit more back to normal…it can only mean that September is here!
This is the start of a busy yet exciting part of the year. Although no major holidays to speak of, there are still several events to consider when planning social media in September.
Key Days for Social Media in September
September kicks off with the just-for-fun World Beard Day. Today’s the day to celebrate all the awesome beards out there! No doubt #WorldBeardDay will be an epic hashtag on this day.
The 5th is the International Day of Charity. This United Nations adopted day is meant to bring awareness to poverty within in the world and how various organizations around the world are coming together to help.
You’ll see quite a bit about American Football from around the 9th. The National Football League starts again after a long break.
Also on the 9th is Teddy Bear Day! It’s another just-for-fun day to remember our cuddly friends we had growing up. Use #NationalTeddyBearDay to show pictures of any special Teddy Bears you may still have or to show off some of your own creations if you’re the creative, crafty sort!
Arrrr you ready for the 19th? It be Talk Like a Pirate Day! Never underestimate the power of this day on social media. Expect an abundance of pirate jokes, puns, and of course posts that arrrrr in pirate-talk (We love this day, if you can’t tell!)
Finally, the end of September ushers in the Autumn on the 23rd. There will be a lot of chatter around the #FirstDayofAutumn (or #FirstDayofFall). Also use #HelloAutumn or #HelloFall.
#HelloSeptember and #BackToSchool will also be popular towards the beginning of the month.
Social media in September is bound to be full of fun and happy posts! Will your business be part of it?
