In the PR world, pitch cycles change like the seasons – only, with much higher frequency – and every year, holidays come and go like headlines. Each timely occasion presents a new creative wrapper to play with and an opportunity to tell a client’s unique story through an event shared (or at least recognized) by the masses. “Turkey Season” may not be over quite yet, but we PR pros are already turning the pages on our proactive calendars.
Here are a few upcoming holidays and timely celebrations to help fuel your social content campaign and pitching schedules through the end of the year.
