September 2011 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!
Summer is almost officially over. The kids have gone back to school, it’s getting darker earlier, and the weather is cooling off – but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to celebrate! September brings brightly colored leaves, pumpkin flavored coffee and hot chocolate, and…pirates? Yes. “Talk Like a Pirate Day” takes place this month!
There’s still time to give your grill one last “hurrah!” with Labor Day falling on the 5 – hopefully your guests won’t also be celebrating “Be Late for Something Day,” and they will show up to your party on time! Your company can show its support for our country, troops, and firemen during the National Day of Service and Remembrance on September 11 – you could try organizing a charity event, give away patriotic promo products, or just have a moment of silence.
Curious about what else is going on this month? Take a look below! (click to enlarge):
Geeks, nerds, weirdos, and book worms unite! You have Wonderful Weirdos Day, Video Games Day, and Comic Book Day, all falling within Library Card Sign-Up Month. If your brand is hoping to appeal to these delightfully eclectic folks, you could try a nerdy promotional product. Or, maybe your gym, grocery store, or clinic would like to promote National Fruit and Veggies Month and Whole Grains Month with some fruit and veggie stress balls. No matter which holiday tickles your fancy, there is plenty to celebrate and honor this month!
Also, this isn’t mentioned on our promotional calendar, but September 2011 is Military Month here at QLP. We’ll be running a special promotion for members of the military that provides huge discounts above and beyond our regular prices! More details will follow very soon, so keep checking our blog for the latest updates.
