February Content Prompts

February is here, with a leap year. February also returns with the second half of National Storytelling Week running 27/01/204 to 04/02/2024. Customers and clients buy from businesses they can relate to, so this week is a good time to tell your business story – here’s how.

Historical names for February include Kale-monath in Old English. Imbolc returns on 01/02/2024, as does the West Yorkshire village of Marsden’s Imbolc Fire Festival. This day marks the halfway point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox, which is another way of saying let’s celebrate the brighter times coming.

Aside from the Leap Year/Bachelor’s Day on 29/02/2024, February is a month for love but remember customers and clients are interested in all of your offerings rather than just one ‘heart-shaped box’ day’s worth. Showing off your love for that thing you do over on your socials, consistently all year round is where the real magic happens. 

Month long observances in the UK and across the world include LGBT+ History Month, Raynaud’s Awareness Month, and Season for Nonviolence (International).
