FUN FACTS ABOUT NOVEMBER!

Boy, Oh boy,

I have had such fun finding out about the month of November.  Read below what I found out.  Then you go online or go to your local library and see what more you can find out about November.

NOVEMBER

DID YOU KNOW THAT…

  1. November’s name comes from novem, Latin for “nine.”
  2. In the United States and Canada, November is also known as National Beard Month or No Shave Month (also known as “​No-Shave November“) as a way to raise cancer awareness. 
  3. All Saints Day is a Christian festival held on November 1 that celebrates the lives of all saints, known and unknown.
  4. Veteran’s Day, when we honor those who have served in the United States Armed Forces, falls annually on November 11. It also coincides with Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which mark the end of World War I.
  5. Thanksgiving, perhaps the most popular of all American holidays after Christmas, is celebrated each year on the third Thursday of November.
  6. We also get to enjoy a rare four-day weekend (with the Friday afterward, known as Black Friday, marking the traditional start of the Christmas shopping season).

That’s just a few fun facts.  Send me some more. Thanks.
