According to the National Retail Federation (NRP) St. Patrick’s Day and Easter are the major events that drive consumer spending during the month. While we are still in the midst of a global pandemic, we’ve learned that enthusiasm for keeping our traditions and connections strong has only grown.

Regarding the Holidays and Occasions We Have Chosen

Our goal in creation of these calendars is to make marketing planning easier. So, in order to keep things simple we have chosen to focus on the top 12 consumer spending events as identified by the National Retail Federation; U.S. Federal Holidays; significant religious, ethnic, and cultural holidays that represent the diversity of the U.S. population as identified by ADL; and popular hashtag holidays that provide an opportunity for a natural business tie-in.

If you are interested in finding more occasions to commemorate here are a few resources:

Note that Bahá’í, Jewish, and Islamic holidays begin at sundown the previous day and end at sundown on the date listed.

Plans spread across a hodgepodge of printed calendars and spreadsheets?

Struggling to get a clear view of everything in market? We've been there and we believe that plans siloed by channel, project, and campaign, are holding marketers back from delivering cohesive and compelling omnichannel customer experiences that drive more revenue.

That's why we founded Annum.
