Springtime is nearly here, alongside many other dates to shout about on your social media this March! Here are your key dates for social media in March 2020 to consider as part of your content strategy for the month.

Key Dates for Social Media in March

1 – World Compliment Day – Compliments are nice to give and receive all year long, but let today be a reminder to give one or two. You never know whose day you’re going to brighten!

2 – Dr. Seuss Day – Who else loved the Dr. Seuss classics growing up? Today is a day to celebrate all things Dr. Seuss and his brilliant stories.

5 – World Book Day – World Book Day is a celebration of the book, authors, and illustrators we all love. Which books did you love the most growing up? Which book has had the most impact on you and/or your career? Ask your audience!

6 – Employee Appreciation Day – Studies have shown that when employees feel appreciated, they’re more engaged and productive. Employee Appreciation Day is a day to remind business owners to take the time to show their team gratitude for all they do. Shout about your amazing team today and throughout the year!

8 – International Women’s Day – International Women’s Day is about recognizing the achievements of women around the globe and a reminder that women are still fighting for equality in certain places in the world. Each year has a theme, which for 2020 is #EachForEqual. International Women’s Day is also part of Women’s History Month this March.

17 – St. Patrick’s Day – May the luck of the Irish be with you on St. Patrick’s Day and every day! If you’re in retail, why not showcase some green items? Or invite your audience to your website to find the four-leaf clover for a chance to win a prize?

20 – International Day of Happiness – Since 2013, the United Nations has been celebrating the International Day of Happiness, a day created to recognize how important happiness really is to everyone’s lives. This year’s theme is Happier Together. What or who makes you happiest?

20 – First Day of Spring – Goodbye winter and hello spring! Friday, March 20th marks the start of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

21 – World Down Syndrome Day – World Down Syndrome Day is a global awareness day, which is often marked by wearing fun odd socks for the day and showing them off with the hashtag #LotsOfSocks, #WorldDownSyndromeDay and #WDSD2020. Learn more about the importance of World Down Syndrome Day here and get involved!

22 – Mother’s Day (UK) – Mother’s Day is celebrated in the UK on Sunday, March 22nd. Of course, it’s a day to honor mothers, stepmothers, those who are like a mother, and those special bonds that you have. (Don’t worry those in the US and other places in the world – You still have a couple more months to get your Mother’s Day gifts!)

26 – Make Up Your Own Holiday Day – Finally! Today is your chance to make up your own holiday! What would you choose? There already seems to be a day for everything, but we’re sure we can come up with something fun.

27 – International Whisky Day – Whisky lovers, rejoice! If you ever needed an excuse to enjoy a dram, today is it. But today isn’t just about indulging in the finest Scotch, but to raise money for charity too as you gather with friends to raise a glass, specifically for Cure Parkinson’s. Get involved with the hashtag #WhiskyDay and #WhiskyDaySelfie.
