I can hardly believe this crazy year is finally ending in just two days. It’s been a tough one for most people, but here’s hoping 2021 runs a little more smoothly – fingers crossed. 

Business is likely to slow down over the next few weeks, although sales may still come in from people looking to use gift cards or spend cash they received as gifts. Plus, there’ll likely be returns and exchanges to process as well. 

But looking ahead to the new year, I’ve updated my big list of “weird” holidays, which I’ve shared with you a few times in the past.

You can use this list to give your sales a boost throughout the year by running promotions for unusual or lesser-known holidays. Alternatively, you can use it as a source of inspiration for new design ideas.

For example, January 19, 2021 is Popcorn Day. You could run a special promotion for this holiday and come up with popcorn-related design ideas.

This may sound a little silly, but check out a few of the results from a Google Image search for “popcorn mug”:
