April Holidays, Events, and Awareness Dates to Keep on Your Radar

April is almost here! We’re excited here in New York. Magnolias, daffodils, and hyacinths have returned to grace our city streets, and the weather’s getting steadily more pleasant each week. As we advance into April, there are several great opportunities to keep your business top of mind with clients and business partners. Here are some of the upcoming holidays, events, and awareness dates coming up that you might want to have on your radar for promotional campaigns and giveaways—from lighthearted humorous occasions to thoughtful remembrances.


Holidays and Awareness Days

April 1 – April Fool’s Day

Kicking off the month is April Fool’s Day. Now if you have a rather witty and irreverent brand image, you might want to make use of this day by playing a good-natured trick of some kind.

April 1 – National Walk to Work Day

Celebrated on the first Friday of April each year, National Walk to Work Day is an event focusing on fitness and environmental awareness. Why not take a pleasant spring stroll to the office on this day?

April 15 – Tax Day

As many folks in the U.S. know, Tax Day is upon us: April 15. If your business is involved in accounting or financial planning, that’s certainly a major date worth marking.

April 18 – Patriot’s Day

Celebrated as a state holiday in Massachusetts and Maine, this holiday commemorates the battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775, which signaled the start of the American War of Independence against Britain.

April 22 – Passover

Beginning at sundown on April 22 and lasting for eight days, Passover celebrates the deliverance of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt.

April 24 – Earth Day

Earth Day arrives on April 24. You may want to honor this occasion by giving out eco-friendly promotional gifts such as eco-friendly tote bags, eco-friendly water bottles, and eco-friendly pens. You can even give out seeds for flowers, herbs, and plants that will produce warm reminders of nature’s beauty long after the date has passed.

April 29 – Arbor Day

National Arbor Day, celebrated on the final Friday of April, is a holiday in which people and community groups plant and care for trees. Now celebrated nationwide, Arbor Day began in Nebraska in 1872.

Awareness Weeks April 2016

April 24 – April 30: Administrative Professionals Week

This is a perfect occasion to honor the administrative professionals at your firm and recognize their many contributions to the company’s success with something sweet like a chocolate gift set, perhaps, or a classy option like an elegant desk set. If you want to focus your efforts on a single day, Administrative Professionals Day (formerly known as “Secretaries Day”) is that Wednesday, April 27.

Awareness Months April 2016

– Procrastination Awareness Month

Could it be a coincidence that with Tax Day on the 15th, April is also Procrastination Awareness Month? With so many of us feverishly crunching numbers right up until the tax deadline, you have to wonder if there’s a connection there. But on a more serious note, procrastination is often linked to stress and anxiety, two difficult conditions with which many people struggle, and so Procrastination Awareness Month is also a good occasion to promote genuine well-being and a balanced, happy life. Stress relievers and stress toys are popular, but wellness trackers and journals also make fine gifts.

– National Humor Month

Want to brighten someone’s day with a laugh? April is National Humor Month—a perfect opportunity to celebrate the lighter side of life.
