How did I miss “Sock Monkey Day”? – #Tag Awareness days for March 2019


Have you ever spotted a hashtag trend on social media, and wondered how you missed out on the opportunity to use it in a promotion?

Have you seen all your friends posting up odd photos of their pets with #WhatIfCatsAndDogsHadOpposableThumbsDay and just been a little curious if there was a day or two each month that you could take advantage of?

Well, wait and wonder no more. 

I have trolled the interweb pages for a pretty long list of the normal and not so normal days that are #tagged every year.
