You could change your cover and profile photos to a festive theme, with a green or red theme. This way you are making it clear to your audience that you really are in the festive spirit.
Share A Festive Story
Everyone loves stories, but especially around the festive season! Has your business helped those in need around Christmas? Has a child been asking Father Christmas for one of your products all year round and their parent is finally getting it for them? Create a strong rapport with your audience by sharing a down to earth story everyone will like and relate to.
