July 2011 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!
What imagery comes to mind when you think about July? Most would say picnics, pool parties, grilling outdoors, and celebrating Independence Day (not the Will Smith movie). July 4th may be the most popular holiday this month, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only noteworthy day on the calendar!
You may be surprised to find out that July 2011 is brimming with lesser-known observances like Parents’ Day, Embrace Your Geekness Day, and National Make a Difference to Children Month. Stray off the beaten holiday path and add some new summer events to your list! July has something for everyone, whether you love fuzzy bunnies or you love being naked.
Here’s what you have to look forward to in July 2011 (click to enlarge):
Now you have an excuse to kiss that special someone, hug a spotted cow, and even spend warm days in front of the grill! Thanks, July! And who would have imagined that National Nude Day and Bastille Day would fall on the same date? Sometimes holidays are funny like that.
