It's not just birthdays, anniversaries and weddings, but the everyday moments that give life meaning, too.

Hallmark is now celebrating those unsung moments--from mealtime to reading your kid a book at night -- with a new branding campaign that marks a bold departure for the 101-year old greeting card company.

Dubbed, "Life Is a Special Occasion," the campaign celebrates "imperfect, unplanned moments," as opposed to birthdays, milestones and holidays.

Hallmark's re-branding campaign -- which includes social media marketing -- marks a bid to stay relevant with today's consumer, and comes amid efforts to grow the business with new products such as recordable storybooks and personalized greeting cards.
