We might soon be surrounded by Christmas music and shopping sales, but there is plenty more in the month of December to inspire our social media content calendars! Put these special days in your diary: Pretend to Be a Time Traveler Day, Chocolate Covered Anything Day, the new Star Wars film released and of course International Dalek Remembrance Day.

Have a happy and safe holiday break!
