It’s good to be ahead of the game, especially when it comes to promotional products. It’s easy to look at the calendar, realize its December 10th and that you haven’t ordered corporate Christmas cards. Been there done that. Holidays, observances, and events can sneak up on you and before you know it it’s too late to order the promotional products you had in mind for your celebration. Hopefully, this holiday checklist will help you navigate the advertising specialty highways, and besides I think it’s just fun to know, don’t you?

How to Use this 2018 Holiday Checklist 

Use the list above as your 2018 holiday, observance, and event checklist. Copy and paste it, add it to a folder on your desktop or print a copy and tape it over your desk, either way, use this list to help you stay ahead of the game.

It’s fun too, for example, I didn’t know that February 14th is a two for one holiday with Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday, did you?

And although the day of the week isn’t listed; only the date, you’ll be glad to know that Easter falls on a Sunday and Thanksgiving is celebrated on a Thursday in 2018.
