Crack out the pumpkin spiced lattes and pull on your cosiest jumper – September is here, ushering in the beginning of spooky season and a need for some extra spooky September content ideas!
Now it has to be said, September isn’t the most exciting month of the year when it comes to important dates or big events. But that doesn’t mean you can’t tap into what is going on, and it’s the perfect opportunity to start to look ahead to your (dare we say it) Christmas and holiday season content.
We’ve pulled together some of the biggest dates to watch out for in September, and added a few additional September content ideas that you could include in your digital or social media content this month.
5th September – International Day of Charity
If you’re looking to give a little back, there’s no better day to do it than International Charity Day.
Okay, this one is a quiet week.
So why not start to pull together some ideas for the rest of the year. Are there any competitions you want to run around Christmas time? Anything coming up that you want to get people signing up for?
NOW is the time to start to think about posting teasers or little snippets of info about the event. Get people interested before a bigger push later in the year!
6th September – Read a Book Day
Who doesn’t love a good book with a cosy cuppa on a rainy afternoon?
12th September – National Day of Encouragement
Who doesn’t love a bit of encouragement? Well, there’s an entire day dedicated to it in September! Why not try:
September 15-16th – Yom Kippur
