As we navigate through the year, it is essential to stay informed about upcoming holidays to plan events, vacations, product launches, and marketing strategies effectively. The third quarter of 2024 is fast approaching. Let us look at the major holidays and observances anticipated for the months of July, August, and September across several countries including the United States (US), Canada (CAN), the United Kingdom (UK), Australia (AUS), New Zealand (NZ), and France (FR).

NOTE: If you sell worldwide, watch for holidays in other countries and not just your home country. Sometimes, the same holiday is celebrated in multiple countries but on different dates, meaning that one design can be used multiple times during a year.

Remember to be mindful of copyrights and trademarks when creating merchandise for holidays, observances, and special events. In the United States, these can be researched online on the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)’s site.
