Your 2023 Social Media Holiday Calendar for July


July is nearly here! And while we had a fantastic June in terms of ☀️, let’s hope it can continue, as we enter ‘the hottest month of the year’ in the UK. So what are the national holidays coming up that we can look forward to? Use your social media platforms to inspire your followers, with the following key dates…

Did you know – July was named by the Roman Senate in honour of Roman general Julius Caesar? With it being the month of his birth. Well now you do!

Get your dad jokes and your cheesy puns at the ready, as July kicks off with International Joke Day   (1st). If you need a bit of inspiration – we recommend you give this instagram handle a follow which will promise to keep you giggling into August: @dadsaysjokes 

We’re hoping the weather behaves itself in time for Bikini Day (5th), but at least if it’s a wash out, then we have Fried Chicken Day (6th) and World Chocolate Day  (7th) to look forward to …

Week two highlights include Simplicity Day (12th), French Fries Day (14th) and with week three kicking off one of our favourite days of the year; World Emoji Day! (17th). Don’t forget to grab yourself an Ice Cream for Ice Cream Day (16th) and enjoy all of the tasty national holidays in July, but also take note of the fantastic work done by Samaritans on 24th as we club together for Samaritans Awareness Day.

The last week of July highlights include International Friendship Day (30th) and National Avocado Day (31st).

Like every month, July gives us plenty of opportunities to have fun with our socials. So whatever day you wish to celebrate, have a great month and enjoy getting creative!
