5 Christmas hashtags to get your business noticed this season

Posted by Nicole Kow on Dec 18, 2015

Twitter is a great tool to get more bookings this Christmas, as is Instagram. With #Winter and #Christmas2016 around the corner, it’s the perfect time to inject some #ChristmasSpirit into your #SocialMedia. Don’t be a #GrumpyGrinch this season. 

Here are 5 #ChristmasHashtags to get your company noticed on Twitter and Instagram this #Christmas.


1. #Christmas2016

Probably the most obvious hashtag of all. Just make sure it’s 2016, not any other year. You could end up looking careless on social media otherwise.


2. #MerryChristmas

Everyone loves a good ol’ Christmas greeting. Why not use this hashtag to join in on the festivity happening this season? Just remember to spell out Christmas rather than abbreviate it to Xmas.

A simple analysis based on last year’s Christmas tweets showed that “Christmas” was more frequently used and viewed compared to “Xmas”.



3. #Naughty or #Nice?

The same analysis also looked at the difference between tweets using #Naughty and #Nice. #Naughty was the winning hashtag last year and that doesn’t seem like it’ll change this year.


4. #Santa

Who doesn’t love this jolly old man who breaks into your house to give you free gifts, eat all your cookies and drink all your milk? If you’d like to thank him for all the Christmas joy he’s brought, #Santa is your best bet. #SantaClaus can also be used, but it does take up more characters and sends the same message anyway.



5. Take a leap of faith and hashtag anything Christmassy happening in your area

You could take a picture of your #ChristmasTree or #ChristmasLights. If you attended a Christmassy event, why not tweet about it and include #CarolsByCandlelight or #ChristmasSale?

This year, I hope to make #ChristmasWithCheese and #ChristmasInInterlaken trend on Twitter. Even though I’ll be celebrating Christmas a thousand miles away, it’s a beautiful place so why not give it a little shout out whenever you can?
