Drumroll, please… it’s Black Friday! Make sure you’ve cleared out some room in your trunk because the deals are endless.
Every year, on the Friday after Thanksgiving, businesses offer incredible deals on their merchandise and sometimes even open at midnight for those customers that just can’t wait.
Since 1952, Black Friday has been the start of Christmas shopping and the busiest shopping day of the year since at least 2005. So, make sure you give your customers all the information they need to shop until they drop this Black Friday.

This incredible Mexican tradition takes place every 1st and 2nd of November, where people spend time with family and friends to celebrate the lives of the loved ones they have lost. While certain roots of this tradition can be traced back to All Saints Day in Europe, the true origin is still up for debate. However, unlike other memorial days, Día De Los Muertos celebrates life, using colorful flowers and candy sugar skulls to honor the deceased.
Join the celebration by encouraging your audience to participate in this beautiful Mexican tradition of celebrating life and honoring the deceased.

Get ready for the festival of lights! Diwali is a major festival celebrated by Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, and Sikhs. Symbolizing the victory of light over darkness, the festival is celebrated with people’s finest clothing, lighting up the outside of their houses, fireworks, family feasts, and the sharing of sweets and gifts.
While the festival is associated with Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity, it’s always a great time to engage your audience by having them join in the celebration!

Are you ready for an extra hour of sleep? We can’t wait!
Every year, on the first Sunday of November, the US sets the clock back 1 hour to have darkness come at a later time. Originating in 1916 in the German Empire, Daylight Savings has been used in various countries. However, it is still only used by a minority of the world.
To all the countries who do not observe this tradition, I’m sorry that you won’t be getting an extra hour of sleep this November 7th!

Did somebody say turkey and gravy? One of everybody’s favorite holidays is finally here… Thanksgiving!
Every year, on the fourth Thursday of November, the US celebrates the wonderful holiday of Thanksgiving, aka Turkey Day. Originating as a day to give thanks and conduct a sacrifice for the blessing of the harvest has become one of America’s most famous days of the year.
Thanksgiving is known as one of the most joyous days of the year, with millions of people joining together with their families to eat turkey and give thanks for the blessing of their past year. Encourage your customers to make the most of this amazing holiday and watch your engagement grow (like our stretchy pants) as a result!

While we love our Black Friday deals at large national retailers, sometimes small businesses can be forgotten. Did you know that small businesses provide work for almost 50% of the entire workforce!?
It’s crazy to think that over 40% of small businesses were closed at some point throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving hundreds of thousands of people out of work. If that wasn’t enough, around 57% of small businesses rely on personal savings to start their company, meaning each of these businesses’ survival was in jeopardy over the last few years.
Encourage your customers to join the movement and celebrate Small Business Saturday by shopping local!

Who else is excited about jelly donuts and 8 nights of presents!? This Jewish holiday commemorates the incredible victory of the Maccabees over the Greek King, Antiochus, and the rededication of the second temple.

What started as a simple idea encouraging people to do good has become a global phenomenon that recurs each year. Giving Tuesday, originally founded in 2012, began as a day for people to do good deeds worldwide. Whether it is something as small as making someone smile, or as large as making a donation or spending the day volunteering, any act of kindness is appreciated on Giving Tuesday. Encourage your customers to do some good and join the movement on this wonderful day.
