What are hashtag holidays?

You’ve seen a hashtag holiday before, the fun social media trend that brings people together over their shared love of doughnuts with the simple use of a #. But have you ever wondered why they are so popular? Is there really an international cat day, and should your brand jump on the hashtag wagon?

These “holidays” are great ways to generate fun and engaging content to reach not only your intended audience, but also those who might not normally see your content. However, there is a fine line that you need to pay attention to if you do decide to add this trend to your social media strategy.

Hashtag Holiday Calendar

We created a hashtag holiday calendar for 2021 so that you can get a heads up on content creation. There is nothing worse than seeing the perfect hashtag trending at the end of the day, and being unable to jump on that wagon. Always be on top of your content creation with Adrimedia’s Hashtag Calendar for 2021 :

Obviously you don’t want to use all of these. There are way too many of them, and honestly, some are super niche. However, if you pick and choose your favorite, the ones that resonate with your brand, you now have a lot of new content.

Don’t forget to factor in your existing audience. What do they like? Are there any of these holidays that would resonate with them? The simple act of listening to your audience on what they like can take you a long way!

Remember, it’s called social media. You are creating your content for others, not the other way around. Your audience always knows when you are not being sincere, so make sure that you do a little bit of research on which hashtags to use.
