Why September Holidays Make Great Social Media Posts

Back in my corporate marketing days, when I managed the social media channels for a $150 million business, I rejoiced when a holiday came around.

Holiday posts were easy to create, and they always received more “likes” than any other post.

Not many people will engage with a post about a company news release or an industry article, but many who see a post wishing everyone a Happy Labor Day will give it a “like.”

Including holidays in your social media content is an easy way to increase engagement and reach. People are already talking about the holiday, so you need to join the conversation.

You can use holiday-related hashtags, post photos celebrating the holiday, run contests, or offer discounts or special promotions related to the holiday.

Not sure how to get started? Here are some ideas:

  • Share recipes for favorite dishes served on the holiday
  • Give tips on how to decorate for the holiday
  • Offer advice on entertaining during the holiday season
  • Share photos of employees or customers celebrating the holiday
  • Run a contest related to the holiday
  • Offer a discount on products or services related to the holiday

With this list of September holidays, you will be able to easily come up with social media content ideas for September that will resonate with your audience and help you increase engagement and reach on your social channels.

For a business owner or marketer, holiday posts not only increase social media engagement but are also easy to create and fill followers with positive emotions.

When sharing a holiday post, always include an image or video with your status update, regardless of the platform you’re using. 

That’s because posts with an image get 2.3 times more engagement than posts without an image. (source)

Including an image with your post is the easiest way to DOUBLE engagement and it’s why the Social Media Content Club, our industry-leading social media software, is FULL of eye-catching images.

Also, tack on a holiday-themed hashtag to make it easy for people to find your content, and use location tagging if you have a physical storefront.

Practical Tips for September Social Media Posts

September offers a wealth of opportunities for private businesses, federal employees, and local governments to create engaging and visually appealing social media content.

Here are some practical tips to make the most of these special days and observances:

Use Vibrant Colors

Incorporating vibrant colors in your social media posts can significantly boost engagement.

Whether you’re celebrating Labor Day weekend, the start of fall, or other local holidays, using bold and eye-catching hues can make your content stand out.

Vibrant colors are particularly effective for highlighting festive occasions and events, such as the first Monday of September, helping to capture your audience’s attention and encourage interaction.

Share Local Events

Promoting local events is a great way to increase your visibility and foster community engagement.

Highlight events like local cultural festivals or the autumn equinox celebrations.

Sharing information about local government-sponsored events and activities, such as a special event at a grocery store or a local book club meeting discussing new books, can position your brand as a community-focused entity, enhancing your reputation and reach.

Promote Mindful Practices

September is an ideal time to focus on mental health and mindful practices.

Sharing tips and activities that promote well-being can resonate deeply with your audience.

For example, encourage followers to engage in meditative exercises like coloring or highlight the benefits of adopting a healthy food regimen during Self-Improvement Month.

Engage with Themed Campaigns

Running themed campaigns around national days and special days can drive engagement and visibility.

Consider creating content for National IT Professionals Day, sharing tips and products to manage seamless technology.

Similarly, celebrate American Chess Day by offering promotions on chess-related products or hosting virtual chess tournaments.

Additionally, campaigns focused on themes like intimate connection or the journey of self-discovery can also be tied to National Read a Book Day, providing rich content that appeals to a wide audience.

Highlight Seasonal Observances

Leveraging seasonal observances can keep your content timely and relevant.

The autumn equinox is a perfect opportunity to share stunning images and videos, engaging your audience with nature’s beauty.

Encourage followers to share their own equinox experiences, creating a sense of community and shared wonder.

Sharing content related to the unofficial end of summer can also resonate well with your audience.

Incorporate National and International Days

Recognizing both national and international holidays can broaden your audience.

Celebrating days like World Car-Free Day or National Hispanic Heritage Month with themed posts, contests, or discounts can attract a diverse group of followers.

Highlighting important observances such as cancer research awareness on World Cancer Research Day can also raise awareness and show your brand’s commitment to social causes.

Additionally, celebrating National Step Family Day and National Emma M. Nutt Day can provide unique content opportunities.

By incorporating these practical tips and focusing on a diverse range of topics, you can create a robust and engaging social media strategy for September.

This approach not only boosts your SEO but also ensures your content resonates with and is shared by a wide audience.


The month of September is packed with holidays and local observances that can be used as social media content.

From Labor Day to Self Improvement Month, there are plenty of hashtags and ideas to help you get your social media posts seen by more people.

And don’t forget about using monthly, weekly, and daily observances to keep your social media calendar full!

We hope this post has been helpful and gives you some great ideas for content. If you found it useful, please share it with others!
