Are there any other big social media holidays than Halloween in October? Yes, yes and yes! Towards the end of October everyone in the States might be focused on Halloween. And perhaps, rightfully so. But, when others are focusing on Halloween and competing with each other, you can offer your readers a much-needed break by bringing their attention to, say, Make A Difference Day (4th Saturday in October), the World Pasta Day or National Chocolate Day. So why don’t you focus on something lighter, while not forgetting about the carved pumpkins and sexy costumes? And if socializing isn’t you thing, why not observe #NationalHermitDay on October 29?
