5 Thanksgiving hashtags and when to use them
The holiday season is upon us, and for many brands it's a crucial time of year for connecting with customers and driving sales.
For your content to stand out from the crowd this Thanksgiving and beyond, it's important to use appropriate and seasonally relevant language — including hashtags.
We recommend using seasonal hashtags (one to two hashtags per Tweet is the sweet spot) two to three weeks before the holiday period to build anticipation and share in your follower's excitement.
With that in mind, here are five popular Thanksgiving hashtags for you to include in your Tweets this year:
Use the hashtag #Thanksgiving to share gratitude and create a feeling of anticipation around the holiday season.
Pair it with anything that's seasonally relevant, whether it's announcing products perfect for a Thanksgiving feast, discounts, giving thanks for your customer’s and client’s loyalty, or a simple countdown to join in on the excitement.
