What to post on Social Media in December 2019

social media posts ideas december 2019

Quick poll.

  1. Who is feeling smug about their Christmas planning skills and ability to hide presents in the house so no one will find them before 25th December?
  2. Who has organised the avalanche of Black Friday and Cyber Monday emails into content appropriate folders and has a clear inbox?
  3. And who knows exactly what they are going to post on their social media accounts through December?

3 out of 3? 

OK, you win. Consider yourself the star on top of the Christmas tree.

Less than 3? If it is one of the first two questions that has let you down, we suggest writing a list and start ticking some things off (and don’t forget to add batteries and sellotape to the list. Always forget the sellotape).

If it is the last question that left you facepalming and thinking if only there was a simple list I could use to give me ideas of what to post on your social media in December, guess what?

Say hello to your handy list of awareness days for December 2019.

Go ahead, consider it our gift to you.
