Can you believe it’s nearly May? The end of April Showers and hopefully the start of gorgeous sunny days and events such as The RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Do you pay attention to National Days? There are plenty of sources online to find out which National Days are when. Do be aware that a lot of National Days move slightly each year so if something is on the first of the month this year; it may not necessarily be on the same date next year. Also be aware that lots of National Days are actually American, so may not be suitable.

Round-up of May 2018:

  • The season is Spring
  • There are 31 days in May
  • Staffordshire Day is 1st May
  • May Bank Holiday is 7th
  • Spring Bank Holiday is 28th

What is a National Day?

When first started, it was a designated date for celebrations for a particular nation or country. Nowadays you may already be aware that there are a lot of National Days out there, some serious with a lot of history behind them, and some more light-hearted and fun.

What’s the point of National Days?

Selecting a handful of National Days to use each month can be really beneficial to your business, which is why at Market Avenue Ltd, we use them. Whether you use them as a base to write a blog, as extra content across social media platforms or to promote services, offers or events, make sure you know the big ones on the calendar and pick some specific ones that tie in with the type of business you have.
