2023 Social Media Holiday Calendar

january 2023 social media holiday calendar

Start planning your social media content for the whole year with our 2023 Social Media Holiday Calendar. This calendar lists a wide range of holidays your business can plan all kinds of content around, including video!  Download it, bookmark it or print it to help you and your team share timely content relevant to your brand. 

 

As is our tradition, our calendar features stunning photos of our native New Zealand (Fun Fact: EditMate was launched there in 2016) so it can be not only informative but also decorative!

This year, we’ve included individual holidays and their hashtags, special week-long holidays (like Teacher Appreciation Week) and each month has its own theme to help you plan around too, like May’s Mental Health Awareness Month.
