February is full of hashtag holidays, and Social Static is here to break it all down for you!
As always, we’d like to remind you that although using hashtags is a fun way to connect with your audience, don’t forget to only use those that are relevant to your business and ideal customer. The following is a list of hashtags you can use this month to connect and engage with your audience!
Groundhog Day (#GroundhogDay)
Celebrating Groundhog Day could go two ways – we could be celebrating the arrival of spring or six more weeks of winter. Let’s hope the groundhog doesn’t see its shadow! A fun way to celebrate could be by having a poll to see which your audience would rather have.
World Cancer Day (#WorldCancerDay)
World Cancer Day was created by International Cancer Control (UICC) and is dedicated to raising awareness about cancer, its prevention, detection, and treatment.
New York Fashion Week (#NYFW, #NYFW2021)
This one is for all of the fashionistas, connect with others by sharing and discussing your favorite looks or fashion collections from the show!
Super Bowl (#SBLIV, #SB55)
National Send a Card to a Friend Day (#SendACardToAFriendDay)
The Super Bowl is held every year in early February. It’s the battle between two of football’s best teams, and also features brands who have ads throughout the game. Ask your audience which team they’re rooting for or if they just enjoy watching the commercials!
Take a break from text and email and send physical mail – a card or letter – to your friends or loved one. This holiday was introduced to increase the popularity of sending physical mail.
National Pizza Day (#NationalPizzaDay)
Safer Internet Day (#SID2021)

President’s Day was introduced on George Washington’s birthday to celebrate two founding fathers of the country – Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Now, the day celebrates the lives and accomplishments of all U.S. presidents.
Random Acts of Kindness Day (#KindnessDay)
As the name suggests, this day encourages random acts of kindness, it was created by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation to make kindness “the norm.” A fun and easy way to do this is by paying it forward in a drive-thru when you pick up your breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just a coffee!
Love Your Pet Day (#LoveYourPetDay)
World Day of Social Justice (#SocialJusticeDay)
Give some extra love and attention to your fur baby and share a photo to celebrate your love for them with this hashtag!

National Skip The Straw Day (#SkipTheStrawDay)
Save the turtles and skip the straw. Share a photo of you skipping the straw and encourage others to do the same. As a business, you could offer an incentive for sharing a photo with you.
We’ve given you plenty of hashtag holidays to choose from, make sure to pick those that are more relevant to your business and target audience. As always, have fun with it!
