Month of November

November is the eleventh month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars, the fourth and last of four months to have a length of 30 days and the fifth and last of five months to have a length of fewer than 31 days.

Every November, it’s time to begin preparation for the winter months, whether that means pulling out your winter coat, adding another blanket to your bed, or searching for the perfect pumpkin pie recipe.

November derives from the Latin root novem- meaning “nine,” because in the Roman calendar there were only 10 months in the year, and November was indeed the ninth month. The word November was first recorded before the year 1000.

Holidays in November

When you think of November it’s easy to write it off as the holding month between Halloween and Christmas when very little happens.

But don’t wish the 11th month of the year away so quickly – there’s plenty to enjoy and feel happy about.

There’s the autumn weather, the pre-Christmas planning and – of course – the epic spectacle that is Bonfire Night.

The word holiday has differing connotations in different regions. It can exclusively be refer to the nationally, religiously or culturally observed day(s) of rest or celebration, or the events themselves. While the word may refer to the period of time where leave from one’s duties has been agreed.

The concept of holidays is also often originated in connection with religious observances. The intention of a holiday was typically to allow individuals to tend to religious duties associated with important dates on the calendar. In most modern societies, however, holidays serve as much of a recreational function as any other weekend days or activities.

Meanwhile few of holidays in November are: Use Your Common Sense Day, Mischief Night, National Candy Day, National Chicken Lady Day, Random Acts of Kindness Day, Gunpowder Day, Guy Fawkes Day, etc.
