June 2011 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!
So many positive things are associated with the month of June: the first day of summer, sunny days, Father’s Day, a certain blogger’s birthday…you know, all of the events that truly matter! Celebrate and honor all that June 2011 has to offer by taking a look at our convenient promotional calendar.
June doesn’t have a holiday list as extensive as other months, but there’s no shortage of special occasions or awareness days. Are you searching for a reason to celebrate or for a cause to support? Consider Flag Day, Pentecost, or even Women’s Golf Month. Do you relish those obscure holidays that no one else seems to know about? Try National Candy Month, National Bubba Day (a day celebrating guys named “Bubba”), or Zoo and Aquarium Month. Since the beloved QLP mascot is named Bubba, we can’t wait to celebrate National Bubba Day in his honor! Anyway, don’t let me stand in the way of you and your special events – hop to it! Here’s what you have to work with (click to enlarge chart):
No matter what your pre-summertime agenda, June has your holiday needs covered. Think about it: when you’re informed in advance like this, you’ll no longer lose sleep wondering if you’ll be unprepared for the next popular awareness day, like World Blood Donor Day or National Flip Flop Day. Plus, if you’re the outdoorsy type, you won’t be able to resist promoting observances like National Sun Safety Week or National Camping Month. Bring on the tents and sunscreen!
This list isn’t the final word in event calendars, but it will give you a nice push in the right direction. If we missed any big days or occasions, then be sure to add them in the comments section! What’s your favorite occasion from this June 2011 calendar? How do you intend to celebrate said holidays? Get creative and share your special-event savvy with the world!
