Last week we gave you some ideas of awesome Christmas posts but, since we know they were not enough… Why don’t you keep reading this post to find out what are THE OTHER top Christmas post ideas to monetize the season? Yep. Part II is here to help you fill in the gaps of your content calendar. Ready?
Why do we celebrate Christmas?
Let’s talk about Christmas itself. Why not? Why do we celebrate it? And how? Christmas traditions around the world?
We talk about this holiday as if it was all the same thing everywhere, but there are many different traditions, variations, songs, recipes… across the world. So, why don’t you add some context and some substance to your seasonal posts?
Also, if you have a blog, you can give it a personal touch and talk about your own tradition and how you celebrate Christmas at home.
Christmas wishes and toast ideas
You can get as creative as you want. Think about the fact that most of us don’t know what to write or say, so you can compensate for us!
There will be many occasions that will require nice, inspiring words these days. So, why don’t you sit in front of your computer and start working on some really beautiful sentences?
Pro tip: if you want to get the most out of your effort, call your friend. Yes, that super graphic designer, painter or artist. And ask them to come up with a couple of postcard templates where you can add your best holiday wishes. That would be the perfect giveaway for everyone: downloadable Christmas postcards.
Pro tip No. 2: And if your friend is busy… there are tools like Canva that will make your job very, very easy.
