Dates in April for your Social Media Calendar
April Fool’s Day – 1st April 2023
April Fool’s Day, also known as All Fools’ Day, is celebrated around the world with practical jokes and hoaxes. This is a great opportunity for brands to show off their sense of humour. You can engage with audiences and see who believes your joke. Past pranks have had brands create fake products that audiences wish were actually true.
Autism Awareness Day – 2nd April 2023
Autism Awareness Day is celebrated all over the world to raise awareness of developmental disorders and neurodiversity. You can show support by posting about autism or wearing blue.
Good Friday – 7th April 2023
Good Friday is a public holiday in the UK, and marks the day that Jesus was crucified. This is an important day for many Christians, and it’s a good time to reflect on the true meaning of Easter and what it means to each individual.
Easter Sunday – 9th April 2023
Easter Sunday is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Many people attend church services and spend time with their families on this day. It’s also a time for Easter egg hunts, Easter baskets, and plenty of chocolate! Especially if you have participated in Lent then you will be looking forward to indulging in whatever you gave up during the period of Lent.
National Pet Day – 11th April 2023
Pets can give us companionship, they are part of the family and to some people, they are their ‘children’. It is the perfect opportunity to post about your pet or ask audiences to engage by showing photos or sharing stories about their pets. Whether your pet is a cat, dog, reptile or gerbil, they bring us so much joy!
World Art Day – 15th April 2023
Are you creative with artistic flair? Maybe you just like to admire beautiful creations and visit Art galleries for a good day out. World Art Day is to celebrate the incredible world of Art. Everyone can have their own definition of Art so write a poem today or draw a picture to help relax and allow your creativity to flourish. Engage audiences by having them discuss favourite artists through time or to share their very own creations on Instagram, TikTok or Facebook.
