Whether it’s an anniversary, birthday or the Fourth of July, people love getting festive with one another online. If you’re stumped about what to post on social media, chances are that there is a little-known holiday just begging to be celebrated.

While we aren’t suggesting that you hire a party planner to pull together a last-minute Mad Hatter Day tea party, there really is something to the “merry unbirthday” mindset. After all, offbeat holidays offer a break from the routine and give people a reminder that every day is worth celebrating.

Although there are well over 100 official holidays in the month of October, the list below shows off our favorites for each day. Pick a few that you feel resonate with your company’s brand, and figure out fun ways to tie them into your social media schedule.

  1. World Vegetarian Day
  2. Poetry Day
  3. Boyfriends Day
  4. Improve Your Office Day, Vodka Day and Taco Day (We find it hard to believe this is a coincidence.)
  5. World Teachers Day
  6. Mad Hatter Day
  7. Bathtub Day
  8. Bring Your Teddy Bear to Work & School Day
  9. Curious Events Day

With so many ideas to choose from, take the opportunity to tie in some fun information about your company. Whether a member of your team is a Navy veteran (October 27), you have a meat-free recipe that you swear by (October 1), or you found some blackmail-worthy pictures of your coworkers with their teddy bears (October 8), these peeks into your company’s world create an even tighter bond with your customers.
