We’re not entirely sure where this year has gone, but the festive season is here!

Are you looking to up your social content game this winter?

Well… we’ve got you covered with the upcoming key dates you may want to jump on this month.

Aso soon as it hits December, I’m sure there’s one thing that springs to mind for us all… CHRISTMAS!

Depending on the nature of your business, there’s several key dates you can utilise to spruce up your socials.

3rd. Make a gift day

What screams Christmas more than gifts?

Why not create a post focusing on the best homemade gifts. Or if you want to have a bit of fun, video posts of gift making in the office – we all know Instagram loves a reel!

Here at Social Plus, we will be using this day to pack gifts in support of Norah’s North Pole charity. Not everyone is as fortunate on Christmas day and some children wake up to no gifts left by Santa.

Norah’s North Pole works in the North East providing a small sack of Christmas presents to those children who would go without.

Not only will we be packaging gifts, but we are also becoming a drop-off point.

Please feel free to drop off any gifts to our office: 126 Great Lime RD, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE12 6RU

Keep an eye out on our socials for Norah’s North Pole updates: Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn.

4th. National Cookie Day

What better day is there to surprise your colleagues with a sweet treat.

You could even pair this with your favourite seasonal beverage and feature this on your feed.

Our very own coffee addict enjoys an iced gingerbread latte during the festive season. But if this doesn’t take your fancy, there are plenty to choose from!

8th. Ugly Christmas Jumper Day

I’m sure we all own at least one ugly Christmas jumper. On this day it’s time to dig deep (very deep) into the back of our wardrobes and find it.

Why not jump on the ugly Christmas jumper bandwagon and host a Christmas jumper day in the office. If you want to have a bit of fun with it, you could even hold a TikTok fashion show. Encourage engagement from your audience by asking for them to vote their favourite Christmas jumper in the comments. Or better yet, do this in the form of an Instagram poll!

We’re saving our Christmas jumpers for our Candy and Cocktails networking event. If you’re a Newcastle business, why not come along?

23rd. “Happy Christmas Eve Eve”

Would it really be Christmas without our favourite festive Friends Quote.

Just like October 3rd (Mean Girls Day), today is your chance to have a bit of fun with your socials.

Why not dedicate a post to this iconic line, I know we will.

25th. Christmas Day

An exciting day for everyone! I’m sure most of us will be spending our day opening gifts and recovering from our Christmas dinner. However, a Christmas post won’t go amiss with your audience.

This is a great day for spreading the joy across your socials and wishing your followers a ‘Merry Christmas.’

26th. Boxing Day

“Get in loser, we’re going shopping”

The hustle and bustle of Christmas is over but what’s better than keeping the excitement going with boxing day sales.

If you’re a commerce business, it’s your time to shine as this is your opportunity to promote your business.

31st. New Year’s Eve

Get out the sparkly fits and let the celebrations begin!

Whether you’re spending this day at home with family or out with friends, it calls for a celebration.

You could use this day to post about the success of 2022 and your goals for the new year. Or go down the more interactive content route by asking your audience what they’d like to see more of on your socials in the coming year.
