2022 Social Media Calendar

Find 250+ socially relevant national and international hashtags to help your brand get more engagement in 2022 with our social media calendar. Tap into #hashtagholidays and days of observance throughout the year that might be meaningful to your audience.

As a content marketer on social media, it’s imperative that you effectively communicate a brand mission, voice, and tone through social media content. Beyond content creation, it’s also essential to integrate content with relevant conversations that are already happening on social media.

Of course, there are trending topics that can assist you in staying aligned with the things that matter to your audience. However, that content is often real-time, keeping you reactive to content creation and constantly chasing the trends.

As you dabble in the fun of trending topics, also consider researching, planning, and implementing content that aligns with the things that matter most to your ideal audience. You can do this with socially relevant holidays and days of observance that connect your brand to conversations on social media that amplify your profile’s visibility.

Social media management consists of two critical components: strategy and execution. Participating in trending topics falls under execution while preparing and scheduling content for socially relevant holidays incorporates strategy in your proactive outreach.

How to use monthly and weekly themes in your 2022 social media calendar

Before diving into the 2022 daily days of observance, we’re also including monthly and weekly themes that can assist you in creating focused campaigns around timeframes that matter for your brand and audience.

Monthly themes build a hyper-focused approach to your days of observance in your messaging while joining in on a relevant topic on social media. While batch-planning your content, incorporate the monthly theme into your messaging and add the official hashtag to your list of hashtags for the month.

While monthly themes provide an opportunity for full integration into your content writing calendar, the weekly observances can help you formulate a more real-time, engaging approach that gives you more than a day of proactive community management and outreach.

We've curated a list of socially relevant Holidays and days of Observances that will assist you throughout the year. Check it out and bookmark this article for later! #SocialMedia | via @Altimesenichole Click To Tweet

April 2022 social media hashtags and holidays

Known in the U.S. for shifting weather trends and temperatures as well as the first blooms in gardens, April is also a month heavy with symbolism. For both Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic/Protestant denominations, Good Friday and Easter typically occur during this month. (Note that the Muslim commemoration of Ramadan, a month-long period of prayer and fasting, occurs during April for 2022; however, Ramadan is actually based on the Islamic calendar and as such the beginning date varies widely in the Western calendar. If you’re planning any related content, be sure to check with authoritative Islamic sources before finalizing your content calendar.)

November 2022 social media hashtags and holidays

Formerly the ninth month of the old calendar of Romulus, November gets its name from the Latin root word novem, for “nine.” It’s a month that historically sees quite a bit of meteor activity, including the Andromedids, the Leonids, and the Southern Taurids, among other recurring meteor showers. On occasion, the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah may begin during the last days of November. And in 2022, it’s the month in which an undoubtedly contentious midterm election campaign culminates on Election Day, November 8th.
