March already?! How did that happen? No complaints here though as there is certainly quite a bit happening this month to keep us busy, including fun celebrations and historically trending topics to jump into.
Get ready for some of these March just-for-fun and awareness popular social media days that your business may be able to get involved with.

1st – National Barista Day – Can’t go a day without stopping into a local coffee shop before work? Thank a barista!
1st – World Compliment Day – Hey, you there! Yes, you! You’re doing great! (A simple compliment can really make someone’s day, so try to spread the love today with a genuine compliment that puts a smile on someone’s face. And yes, we really do think you’re doing great!)

14th – Pi Day – Yes, there is even a celebration for a mathematical constant, so appropriately on March 14th (3-14). Although, many do mark the day with a delicious pie too!
15th – World Speech Day – World Speech Day aims to promote public speaking, great speeches and those who deliver them.

20th – International Day of Happiness – I think we can all agree that we could use a little bit more happiness in the world right now. What or who makes you happy? How can you spread a bit of happiness and cheer as a business?
20th - Spring starts - One reason many people may be happy is that we finally head into spring on the 20th! Happy spring! What sort of activities and events have you got planned now that the weather is a bit warmer, the days are a bit longer and the sun is shining more?

23rd – National Puppy Day – We cannot wait to see our timelines full of cute puppy pictures, gifs, videos and more! It may not be the most productive day, but at least we’ll have a smile on our face looking at them all. Please share a picture of your puppy or dog when he/she was little and bring a little “Awww!” back to social media timelines.
27th – International Whisk(e)y Day – Are you a whisky lover? Today is for you, and of course, there is only one proper way to celebrate. Which would you reach for first?
30th – National Doctors Day – Especially after the last two years, we should be celebrating and praising our hard-working doctors! Here’s to those incredible doctors around the world who have been so dedicated to helping others.
31st – World Backup Day – Ever lose a piece of work you spent hours typing up because your computer froze? Or worse – the whole thing went down and you were unable to recover files? Performing regular backups from hitting that save button to full-scale file backups to the cloud can be a real lifesaver! You will be entirely glad you did if disaster were to strike, so let today be a reminder that if you haven’t a backup plan in place, it’s time to get one.
