Welcome, December! There is so much to celebrate and get excited about in December! 2020 is almost over, and hope feels like it is lurking right around the corner. Although COVID doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, we can be thankful for the end of the year that ushered it in. Here are some things you can celebrate with your social media family this month!

December: Cat Lovers Month
December is Cat Lovers Month! Remind your faithful cat lovers that this month is for them by sprinkling in some funny cat memes, celebrating #Caturday by featuring feline clients on Saturday, and asking clients for photos of their beloved feline friends.
Post Example: Happy Cat Lovers Month! A special shout out to our feline-loving family. Tell us what makes your cat special in the comments below!
December: Holiday Safety
Candles, a strange tree inside (also known as ‘indoor plumbing’ for our canine friends!), wires with very interesting lights attached to them, tempting foods—the holidays are full of chances for accidents to happen. Share this holiday safety information to help remind your followers to be vigilant for hidden holiday horrors!

December: Holiday Posts
Think about your clientele and be sure to cover all the December holiday bases. Hanukkah begins on December 11th, Christmas is on the 25th, and Kwanzaa on the 26th!
December 9: International Day of Veterinary Medicine
Some fun ideas for this special holiday could include a short quote from the Veterinarian(s) on why they decided on pursuing veterinary medicine or a simple post saying thank you to the veterinarians and technicians at your practice—your clients will want to thank them too!
Post Example: Ask any Veterinarian or Vet Tech why they chose veterinary medicine, and most likely, the short answer is because they have a passion for helping animals in need. Today is the International Day of Veterinary Medicine and a great time to send some appreciation to those Doctors and Techs that take care of our non-human family members. Thank you, Vets and Techs!
December 21: First Day of Winter (Holiday Hour Reminders)
Wish your followers a Happy Winter, and don’t forget to include your holiday hours—and be sure to include New Year too!
Post Example: Happy Winter Solstice and welcome Winter! With the holidays fast approaching, here are our updated holiday hours!
December 31/January 1: New Year's Eve/New Year's
So long, 2020! This year was hard—and it taught us a lot! Give a heartfelt farewell to 2020 and let your clients know that if we work together, 2021 has the potential to be great!
Post Example: Happy New Year—and farewell 2020! Thank you for sticking with us through clinic closures, curbside services, and at that time, we were only allowed to provide emergency care (remember that?!). 2020 has been tough on everyone, and we suspect this new way of life will continue a little longer. What we can look forward to is hope for the future. We are thankful for all of you, our amazing clients, for your understanding and support. We hope this year is brighter than the last!
