Social Sidekick December 2017: Social Holidays, Themes, and Noteworthy Events

Social Sidekick December 2017: Social Holidays, Themes, and Noteworthy Events

Michaela Morales
November 21, 2017

The temperatures are dropping quicker than holiday PR campaigns. Whichever tradition you ascribe to, whether that is decking the halls with holly, lighting candles for Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, putting up a Festivus pole, or merely feasting with friends; there are always social holidays ready to celebrate. And if that Eggnog doesn’t help you get through the frenetic pace of the season, we will. Your Social Sidekick is here, every month, at the ready to slide into your DMs. Much like a snowstorm that blankets an alpine village on a winter morn’, we’ve got you covered.
