Your 2023 Social Media Holiday Calendar for October


Summer may be slowly fading, with the days getting shorter and the weather getting crisper, but fear not! October is still a month full of celebration to keep you warm and fuzzy inside, culminating in one of our favourite days of the year; HALLOWEEN (31st)!

So dig out your knitwear, practice your tricks and stock up on treats while taking note of the following national holidays…

October begins with a whole month dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness. With this being an incredibly important time of year for many, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved and support these wonderful charities and show your support. ❤️

Another highly important date for the diary is World Mental Health Day (10th). Offer some wellbeing tips or why not even share about your own experiences with mental health in business? This day is all about getting involved and ensuring no one feels alone.

There are plenty of national holidays to get our tastebuds tingling…

National Curry Week begins on the 2nd , with Chocolate Week following from the 15th. (as if we need another excuse), not forgetting International Gin & Tonic Day on 19th and World Pasta Day (25th)

Whether you’re a cat or a dog person, there’s something for everyone this month as National Dog Adoption Day (25th) and National Black Cat Day (27th) are also two of our favourites.

Finally, who can forget Halloween (31st)?! A day of carving pumpkins and putting on a scary mask to scare the neighbours. Get those halloween themed posts ready!…
