It’s that time of year again!

Time to start thinking about what you’ll be sharing on social media in 2023.

The holidays are here, and they’re full of cute pets, funny characters, and delicious food. So we thought we’d help by creating a list of trending holidays that you can use to plan your social media campaigns for the first five months of 2023.

The holiday season is a busy time of year for social media, especially those that work in the food space. When you’re trying to get your social media on point, it’s easy to feel like you’re out of ideas—and that’s where we come in.

We’ve compiled a list of the most popular “holidates”, so you can plan ahead and start creating content that will engage your audience this season. The list isn’t exhaustive (there are a lot of “holidates” out there), and these dates may still be subject to change. But this is a great starting point for those in social media who want to learn more about what’s trending and how they can plan their content in a way that will be fun and engaging on social platforms.
