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.

THANKSGIVING!

Hi Guys,

I love the Thanksgiving season, because it helps me to look over my life and see that I am blessed a whole lot.  I know that if I have a house to live in and it’s got a bed and some food and I have clothes to wear and shoes to put on then I am blessed.  In the winter when it’s coldest, I have heat in my house and warm pajamas to put on, and a nice cup of hot chocolate to drink while I read my favorite story on my phone or tablet or I have a real book in my hands, then I am thankful. Very thankful.  

So, as this Thanksgiving season begins don’t forget to show thankfulness and thank God for all your blessings.  Also, pray that God will bless other families who don’t have what you have.  Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

Here’s a history of Thanksgiving:

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday in the United States, and Thanksgiving 2018 occurs on Thursday, November 22. In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.

VETERANS DAY

Hi Guys,

It’s me Bookman, and my friend Jenny asked me to tell you about Veterans Day, so here goes.

talking_bookWell, it’s November and we automatically think about the Thanksgiving Holiday. But do you know what? There is a holiday that happens before Thanksgiving. That holiday is called Veterans Day. Do you know what a veteran is? I sure hope so. But just in case you may not be familiar with that word, I’ll tell  you. A veteran is any man or woman who has served in the military armed forces of this country. So, a veteran can have been in the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Reserves, National Guard-any branch of military service for this great country of ours.

Veterans Day is celebrated on November 11, 2017. In fact November 11th is always the day where we honor and thank all those who have served in this country’s armed forces. Maybe your dad, mom, sister, brother, cousin, aunt, uncle or even grandparents were in the service. If so, be proud of them and thank them. And if your loved one is in the service now, thank them and thank God for them and always pray for them; because they miss you just like you miss them. We want them to come home soon, don’t we?  So, on November 11th say thank you to a veteran and then say a prayer for all of them.

Here’s a brief history about Veterans Day:

Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938.
