Neat November Holidays

Nov 01, 2014

Oh, November. It’s one month that’s got a bit of a bad – or boring – rap. Falling smack-dab in-between Halloween and Christmas, it’s easy to forget that a lot of important holidays happen in the month of November. Here are some of our favorite days to celebrate this month – from important days set aside to remember heroic soldiers to yummy days like National Cake Day and everything in-between.

Before we get started, lets not forget about all the month-long and week-long observances in November: Aviation Month; Child Safety & Protection Month; Good Nutrition Month; International Drum Month; Latin American Month; National Adoption Month; National Epilepsy Month; National Model Railroad Month; Peanut Butter Lover’s Month; National Children’s Book Week (second week of November); and American Education Week (third week of November).
