If you are an article writer, you can really cash in writing articles on holidays. If you are not already doing this, then this is a practice you need to begin right away with the next upcoming holiday. There are many great benefits to holiday content. For example, people are always searching the Internet for this type of content, especially as the holiday approaches. Another benefit is that most holiday content can be evergreen in the since that it is good year after year, even if not all year round. This means you will get benefit from it being read for many years to come.
If you’re going to cash in writing articles on holidays, you have to be sure you are writing what people want to know about. Holiday decorating is hot, as well as lists (top 5, top 10, etc). How to’s related to the holiday are very big in popularity, too. It pays to know your SEO (search engine optimization) and how to use it properly so if you’re not comfortable with this, take some time to hone in on the basics before you start writing your holiday content.

I usually start writing my Halloween content in late August through September. This helps you get indexed early on for the keywords and there are people who search and plan early for their holidays, too.

I usually start Christmas content at Halloween or just after Halloween. I won’t completely flood the scene with it but I will start writing intros and early planning articles. I also write mid-year on “Christmas in July” articles. This is a great time to write about early gift-buying, planning ahead or buying decorations off-season. These are all tips your reader can appreciated.
You can write articles about any holiday, whether it is one you celebrate or not. Here are some more examples of how I have cashed in on holiday-related articles over the years:
