7/1 – Canada Day & International Joke Day
July first celebrates Canada Day, the day three territories came together back in 1867 to officially form the nation of Canada. As a historical holiday, using Live TV streaming to display historical channels and educational programming can entertain viewers while teaching them interesting information. Other fun facts and playlist items can further build out your digital celebrations.
For those who do not celebrate, digital signage offers a great way to share some laughs on International Joke Day! Displaying funny jokes through social media channels is an easy way to leverage user-generated content while still celebrating the holiday.
7/4 – Independence Day
Keeping with the theme of independence, the 4th of July is the day Americans will celebrate their independence as a nation. Streaming live fireworks displays can help people celebrate the spectacle of the holiday from the comfort of their screens. Promotional playlists can also inform viewers about limited-time sales that are going on during the celebration. In addition, the calendar application can inform visitors about events related to the holiday. Red, white, and blue color schemes will help any display stand out and evoke a festive mood. Content can also be geared around historical contexts and lessons that educate viewers of their nation.
7/8 – 7/9 – Day of Arafah
Also known as the ninth day of Dhul-Hijjah, this marks the day Allah perfected the religion of Islam. Occurring on the 2nd day of the Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah, this day is considered the holiest day in Islam. When handling any religious holiday, it is important to be sensitive to everyone’s different cultures and beliefs. Educational and factual content is the safest and most respectable way to celebrate these holidays. Always be sure to do your research and even check with a staff who celebrates these holidays for clarification.
7/9 – 7/10 – Eid Al-Adha
Another significant Islamic holiday, Eid Al-Adha celebrates Abraham’s devotion to Allah by being willing to sacrifice his son. Instead, an angel offered him a goat to sacrifice instead, so this day is celebrated through grand feasts and prayer. Similar to the example above, religious celebrations need to be approached with a degree of understanding and respect. Highlighting employees and their traditions during the holidays is another respectful way to observe the holiday through digital signage. Using the calendar app can also help highlight events and celebrations happening within the community surrounding the holiday.
7/13 – Guru Purnima
Guru Purnima honors all spiritual and academic gurus and is celebrated across India, Nepal, and Bhutan. Gurus are considered enlightened humans who can impart their knowledge to others. There is a lot to learn on this holiday, so displaying inspirational and motivational quotes from gurus can help get people into the spirit of the holiday. Streaming sermons can also help people get involved in the festivities without being there physically. It is worth repeating, always be sure you are well-informed and being respectful before posting any religious signage.
7/14 – Bastille Day
Bastille Day celebrates the pivotal moment the French revolutionaries stormed Bastille during the French Revolution. Celebrating the unification of the French people, many festivals, parades, and feasts are put on during this holiday. Detailing some french cuisine through digital menu boards is a great way to get those taste buds watering. Live TV streaming can display historical programming detailing the importance of the holiday. Lastly, motivational quotes from French leaders can help further people’s understanding of the celebration. Regardless of location, digital signage makes it possible for anyone, anywhere to celebrate this holiday!
7/17 – World Emoji Day & National Ice Cream Day
This day marks a pairing of holidays that can be used in tandem for great digital signage content. World Emoji Day is a day to flex your favorite emojis! From smiley faces to fruit to…ice cream? That’s right! It’s also National Ice Cream day! Leverage your social media and encourage viewers and staff to post selfies of their favorite frozen treats with the appropriate emojis. This type of engagement is a great way to get a short-term boost to your digital footprint. Involving employees in silly promotions such as talking about their favorite emoji or what ice cream they would get from an ice cream truck can also help put a face to your brand. This is a day to be silly with your signage, so get creative!
7/18 – International Nelson Mandela Day
This day honors Nelson Mandela, a political leader who was strongly opposed to apartheid. As the first President elected in a fully-representative democratic election in South Africa, Mandela spent his presidency battling institutionalized racism and prejudice. Many inspirational quotes can be pulled and displayed via digital displays. Replaying historical videos can also educate those on the importance of Mandela’s work within the region. Demonstrating an interest in important social and historical problems demonstrates authenticity for your brand.
7/30 – International Friendship Day
To close out the note, we are ending with a holiday meant to inspire friendship and positivity. International Friendship day is a great day to post your friends on digital signage! Whether in or outside the office, encouraging viewers and staff to post favorite memories, pictures, and moments with some of their closest friends is a great way to boost morale around the office. This in turn will result in higher productivity that simultaneously encourages teambuilding. Any light-hearted messaging will go a long way for this day and conveys the idea that your business is a friendly, welcoming organization.
