June Holidays and Special Days

Things will be heating up soon as June marks the start of summer. In addition to this, June keeps us on our toes with a variety of celebrations and observances honouring dads, the environment and even our BFFs. This is the month we also look to celebrate some true staples of our diet; be aware of plenty of opportunities to align your brand or business with these celebrations if it's a natural fit. June has its fair share of month-long observances, too. Everything from Alzheimer's Awareness to Men's Health Month and Turkey Lover's Month. On a week-by-week basis, you'll find Cervical Screening Awareness Week and Loneliness Awareness Week. It's the one-off celebrations and observances that really set June apart from other months. You'll find plenty of bandwagons to jump on this month, so start planning early!
