April Holidays and Observances

Don't let all those April showers bring you down! Despite the notoriously wet weather, there's still plenty to celebrate and observe in April! For one, this is a time of year when many of us shake out the frost from winter and head out on our first holidays of the year. It may be a bit of slow month in terms of sales or revenue for your business, so staying in touch with your customers through special days and observances could totally make sense for you. While most of the focus in April is on religious holidays, we all can find something to celebrate regardless of our religious preference! Month-long observances in April include celebrating nature and awareness of ailments. On a week-by-week basis, our attention returns to nature again and the month is filled with days dedicated to taking care of and protecting the Earth. So don't let the weather get you down!

This is a great way to join the conversation and naturally build brand awareness.
