You probably already know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. But, did you know that back in the day, President Reagan decreed October also to be AIDS Awareness Month? Monthly holidays are essential to bring awareness and funding to special causes. In the last few years, it also generates a lot of publicity on social media. Even for events that are far less serious. For example, did you know that October is American Cheese Month, Learn to Bowl Month, and National Chili Month? They are, obviously, lesser-known celebrations, (and let's be honest, far less important) but can put a little pep in your step when it comes to planning your social media schedule for October.
