  1. Wow! I would have never thought about all these fun events for blog posts! My son will be so happy to find out about the Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day! 🙂 Visiting from Flaunt It Friday, pinning, and following you on FB and Pinterest.

    1. Hi Kristin, thanks for stopping by! Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day is certainly a popular one, myself included! Thanks for the follow and if you leave your links, I’ll follow back. 🙂

  2. Your list is awesome! I typically have 4 posts a week that are pre-scheduled, topics I know I want to talk about in advance. But I still have 1 or two posts that I like to write based on the happenings of the world each week. Sometimes I have zero ideas and my draft folder is bleak. Now I can reference this! #GlobalBlogging

    1. Thank you for stopping by, Lisa! It can be a little overwhelming for sure! Will you be adding any of these dates to your social media content calendar?

  3. Fab round up Rosie. Some great inspiration here for new blog posts. Eat ice cream for breakfast day sounds kind of strange, but I like it! There should be more days like this to celebrate! 😉

    Thanks for sharing with #MMBC x

    1. Right, who doesn’t love ice cream?! Keep posted, as each month I will share monthly holidays and awareness days. 🙂

  4. Hi Rosie, some of the celebrations (?) in yoir post did make me smile. World Nutella Day? Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day?… Saying that though the latter seems a good thing to celebrate and could probably be a good subject for a post (as would Nutella!)…. To be honest you’ve got me thinking!

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.


    1. haha that’s awesome! Let me know if you end up writing those posts! I would love to share them with my community. 🙂

    1. Hi Sarah, I tried to add the links for most of the holidays. Hopefully, you’re able to use a few of them. Or perhaps, you have holidays that we don’t? In that case, I would love to hear what they are!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Adam! Will you be using any of these dates to add them to your social media content mix?
