What are you thankful for this month? Let it guide your social media strategy.

Whether November means turkey and trimmings, Black Friday planning or Iron Bowl shenanigans to you, this month is jam-packed with possibilities for your social media and blog content. Food, football and family and friends are a given in November, and there’s no reason your posts can’t share your gratitude. Shout out your clients and vendors, spread praise among your staff, and use our calendar to inspire you.

Our calendar download provides access to fun local events and a few silly holidays to keep your content strategy fresh this month.

If you’re looking for local happenings, look no further. The Moss Rock and Day of the Dead festivals are planned for the first week of November, and Market Noel is calling all shoppers November 15 through 18. Need a boost to your business? Meet up with like-minded entrepreneurs at The Big Pitch on November 18.

Thinking broader? Celebrate World Kindness Day on November 13. If you’re looking for ways to spread kindness, our Random Acts of Kindness generator is a perfect place to start.

Did you know Birmingham is the home of the Veteran’s Day Parade? Fun fact: Birmingham native Raymond Weeks urged President Dwight Eisenhower to honor all veterans. A full range of events is planned November 10-11. The parade marches through downtown Birmingham on November 11. If Halloween didn’t spook you enough, celebrate the Day of the Dead Festival with Bare Hands Gallery in Pepper Place on November 2. Foodies should be excited about the St. Nicholas Slavic/Russian Food Festival on November 4-5; our mouths are watering just reading the menu! The Moss Rock Festival is also on November 4-5. The eco-creative festival will include a tiny house exhibit as well as a beer garden and “sweetery.”

Are you ready to liven up your Instagram feed? Or maybe just inspire your office culture? Then round everyone up for Take a Hike Day on November 17 — or just send them an email explaining why you appreciate them on November 29 (Electronic Greetings Day). Show your favorite local retailer love on Small Business Saturday (November 26). And we’d be remiss if we didn’t encourage you to change your passwords on Computer Security Day (November 30).

She might be a self-described “grammar nerd,” but she promises she isn’t judging your texts, emails or emoji usage. When she isn’t at the keyboard, Alexis loves shopping, napping and obsessing over Alabama football.
