Social Media Days, Holidays & Themes for January 2022

With each passing day, we’re getting closer to 2022. Can you believe it? Keeping up with your social media calendar can feel like a full-time job in this era of constant content creation. Right?!

That’s why having an arsenal of social media holidays and themes comes in handy. It’s always good to stay ahead of the curb, and knowing what relevant days occur on what date makes it easier for you to plan thoughtful, timely posts that will increase engagement.

The tricky part is choosing the appropriate themes, days, and holidays to observe. Here’s my advice: pick a handful relevant to your business and brand, and focus on them first. Then build using a program like Canva to size, save and modify your designs. You should edit, revise, and build upon your Content Calendar each year. By focusing on the most important days, first, you will avoid the stress that comes when you try to do too much early on.

If coming up with social media content is a struggle or if using some new ideas would be helpful, check out my list for January 2022.
