January just seems like the longest month, doesn’t it? Now that we’re finally nearing the end of it, it’s time to get excited over all the fun dates to come. February is full of them! We tend to associate February with Valentine’s Day, but there is a lot more to look forward to, especially when it comes to planning your social media. Here are just some of the popular key dates for social media in February for 2019 and how to implement them into your strategy.
February Social Media Dates
Groundhog Day on February 2nd marks a popular tradition in both the United States and Canada. Stemming from an old superstition, it is believed that if a groundhog sees his shadow on this day, then it’s six more weeks of winter. Will the famous Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow this year? Social media will be talking about it for sure.
World Cancer Day is on February 4th and is meant to help raise awareness and spread the word about prevention and detection. The aim is to encourage people to attend regular screenings as necessary and know the signs to look for, especially since early detection can make all the difference.
Pizza Day on the 9th doesn’t need any explanation! Why not get friends or family around to indulge on your favourite pizzas? What are your favourite toppings?
Radio Day is on the 13th – Do you still listen to the radio or is streaming your thing?
Of course, Valentine’s Day is on February 14th. The day that’s all about love deserves a mention for sure.
Random acts of kindness should be done all year long, but the 17th marks the day to celebrate it. Spread the word to your followers about the day to make the world a little happier on the day.
If you needed an excuse to enjoy a margarita, the 22nd is the day for you. It’ll be even better enjoyed on a beach, but if you’re stuck in a cold, wintery climate, enjoy a margarita anyways!
Finally, Fairtrade Fortnight starts on the 25th and runs until March 10th.
