My Christmas Mug Countdown (All 27 Mugs On Display)

My Christmas mug countdown journey on Facebook and LinkedIn started this year on November 29, 2021. For 27 days I posted a different Christmas mug every day.  I started the tradition of only drinking from a Christmas mug the day after Thanksgiving through Christmas day in 2006. A few people have asked me why I started this tradition and my general response has always been ‘why not!”.  I love the Christmas season! I love the music. I love all of the decorations. I love the colors. And we can get it here in Indiana, I love snow on Christmas Eve. And I particularly love my Christmas mugs and the coffee that fills them each morning.

This year was the first year where I decided to create an actual social media posting campaign with my Christmas mugs. I am not quite sure where the idea to make a daily post came from, but I thought it would be a creative and fun way to show off my mugs. I currently have over 40 Christmas mugs, so I knew I had enough Christmas mugs to pull off a daily posting.

My next step was to create a hashtag for my Christmas mug campaign. If you are not familiar with what a hastag is, here is a simple explanation.

Definition of a Hashtag

A hashtag is a metadata tag that is prefaced by the hash symbol, #. Hashtags are used on social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as a form of user-generated tagging that enables cross-referencing of content; that is, sharing a topic or theme. For example, a search within Instagram for the hashtag #christmas returns all posts that have been tagged with that hashtag. After the initial hash symbol, a hashtag may include letters, digits, and underscores.
For my Christmas mugs posts I used two hashtags:
  1. #coffee
  2. #gregschristmasmugcountdown

I posted exclusively to LinkedIn and Facebook. On Facebook, I posted to my personal newsfeed and I also posted to two Facebook Groups I am a member of https://www.facebook.com/groups/h7network and https://www.facebook.com/groups/Coffeerocks I wish I would have posted to Twitter and Instagram too, but maybe I will include those next year. Smile!
