I love the holidays. Growing up my parents made a big deal of Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was a time when we celebrated with family and made incredible memories that I remember to this day.
I grew up with a big family. Well, a big extended family. My dad came from a house that had seven children. Yes, seven!! My mom came from a house that had four children. Thanksgiving and Christmas meant that we were shuffled around to different houses each year to celebrate with one another but I wouldn’t give those memories up for the world!
That is the one thing that I miss about living so far away from my family. The big holiday get-togethers. I try to keep the momentum going by creating different traditions for my family to celebrate over the holidays and to create these memories for my children.
However, this blog post isn’t about that. This blog post is going to help you with some festive content ideas for the holiday season.
WHY USE FESTIVE CONTENT IN THE FIRST PLACE?
Well for one, it is fun. Who doesn’t love to create content that is specific to different times of the year? You don’t need to be serious all of the time when creating content and the holidays give you the perfect excuse to lighten up and have fun with all of your creative content.
And another reason, using holiday content is a great way for you to connect with your audience. Not everyone is going to celebrate the same holiday and that is okay. It is a great way to include everyone and see what we all celebrate.
No matter if you have Black Friday sales, or celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas, it is a great time to connect and learn about your audience and get them to learn more about you. Just the other day, I wrote a blog post on how you can prepare your content for the holidays.
So it is time to dive in and have fun with this list of festive content that you can use for all of your creative content.
