WHAT’S IN OUR NOVEMBER CALENDAR?

What’s in our November Content Calendar:

There are celebrations for every day in November. We’ve suggested two or more holidays ideas for you to convert into content.

  • Weird, wonderful and wacky holidays to make it fun. You’ll be amazed by how unique and unusual holiday get people talking.
  • A series of week-long holiday celebrations for November.
  • A list of month-long holiday celebrations for November.

Whether it’s World Toilet Day, Love Your Red Hair Day or World Vegan day, you’re sorted with our November calendar. And, of course, we’ve included the popular and well-known day of celebrations like Thanksgiving Day and the Melbourne Cup to remind your followers.

TIPS FOR USING OUR NOVEMBER CONTENT CALENDAR IDEAS

Here are our top tips and tricks for getting the most out of this November Content Calendar.

Firstly, choose celebrations and holidays that will resonate with your audience. Imagine content from your ideal customers viewpoint. What are they interested in, beside your core topics of conversation that you cover already? Do they like eating out? Do they like exercising? Do they have hobbies? They may have signed up for your business-related content, but it doesn’t mean they don’t want to talk about cats, films or children. Get creative with this using our more unusual and weird holidays. Posting about Cake Day makes you more human and relatable. Everyone likes cake, don’t they?

Secondly, remember that this isn’t a complete list. We have left out tons of celebrations for November. But these are the ones that we’ve cherry-picked to get you started. Please feel free to search for extra holidays to add to the list.

Thirdly, check first. Our team has double-checked all the entries, but we suggest that you check the dates for these holidays in your region and country too. You might discover some new regional holidays when you do. Also note that some holidays will be constant from year to year, while others won’t. For example, a holiday may fall on the 3rd Saturday of the month, so the actual date will change from year to year. So, check first before posting. Please let us know if you spot an error so we can fix it.

We haven’t included all countries and religious holidays. Many of the holidays are American holidays. And because Easil is based in Australia, you will find some with an Ozzie twist. Use this list as the starting block to get your mind racing with ideas. Hint, hint – you can use Easil’s images and templates to create images for the content you choose to post.

ADDING IMAGES TO YOUR NOVEMBER SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS

You can use our Easil November Content Calendar in many ways. Why not start with one of our Easil templates to edit and create your own design? Or, upload your own images and logos to create something unique and customized. Your creativity is your only limit when designing images for your audience.

HOT TIP: Post a quote that relates to the holiday. For example, you can extract a passage from one of your favorite books for National Author’s Day on November, the 1st.

MONTH OF NOVEMBER CONTENT CALENDAR IDEAS

Ready to start planning? Here’s our list of holidays for the month of November:

FIBONACCI DAY

It’s easy for a mathematician to see all things around them as a mathematical equation, and nature is no different, thanks to the Fibonacci Sequence. Fibonacci, or Leonardo Bonacci, was an Italian mathematician from Pisa, considered to be one of the most talented mathematicians of all time. The Fibonacci Sequence, relating to the Golden Ratio, is used to analyse the proportions of objects, initially in nature, such as snail shells, cyclones/hurricanes, the pistil of a flower or pinecones. Once the equation was discovered, artists and architects began to use it, in paintings like Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa or The Last Supper, or in designing architecture such as the Parthenon or Taj Mahal. Even DNA uses the Fibonacci numbers, furthermore, we have been able to use the golden ratio to rate human beauty. It’s everywhere!
