  1. Well, I always love Thanksgiving!

  2. hve to go with nov. 29..cause it's my B'day !!! lol..and also it have chocolate!!!!..loves ya..

  3. This is certainly a very busy month. For me the date I remember and celebrate is the birth of my youngest granddaughter. This is also a month that truly brings forth all the many things I am grateful for. Thank you Roni...

  4. Wow, a busy month! My favorite has to be Thanksgiving; generous helpings of food and family and a time of reflection on the many blessings that have bene bestowed upon us all.

  5. I have to love that Men Make Dinner Day and Sandwich Day is the same day, they have to be related you reckon.
    Nov 27 is my Mum's birthday but have to go with 29th anything to do with chocolate.

  6. Nov 10 is forget me not day and sesame street day. I am gonna celebrate those for sure! Thank you for doing these lists! And congrats on your anniversary!!

  7. I love Thanksgiving, but my favorite days in November are the 1st (today is Brynne's bday!) and the 29th (Corinne's bday!!!)

  8. Next to Thanksgiving, my favorite Nov. holiday is my husband's birthday, which is November 6th! Which reminds me that I'd better get to work on his birthday card and gift!

  9. Thanksgiving is my favorite! It is always such a busy month- a warm up to Christmas! Four years of Ink Stains- Yeah!!!!!!

  10. Hi! I'm glad you've posted the November info. I supervise a program at the Jr./Sr. High School that allows students to take certain classes online. I have started picking one of the daily observances to post on our white board just to entertain the kids. They are getting such a kick out of it. Yesterday, Seniors, as well as 7th graders, were asking where the celebration of the day was. Thanks for sharing!

  11. I love Nov. My birthday month! This year special one 11-11-11. My Favorite is Alzheimers as my Grandma died from that. And of course Sundaes. Gotta love ice cream.

  12. Veteran's Day & Thanksgiving. Also grandson's b-day, godson's b-day. and several friends b-days. Busy good month. We already have snow on the ground from last month. I am so Blessed.

  13. Nov 15th cause it's my birthday. Each one is special, especially as a nine year cancer survivor!

  14. hAlways thanksgiving and then buy nothing day, although thats been everyday for 2 years LOL

  15. My favorite is Thanksgiving spending time with family. I also love the day after, black friday great shopping day. Shari (cricutrookie)

  16. I work for the VA so my favorite holiday this month is Veteran's Day!!


  17. The entire Fall Season from the first cool crisp night in September all the way through New Years is my favorite time of the year! Thanksgiving is particularly nice getting together with family we dont get to see often. But when I was looking through the list, "Chaos Never Dies Day" on Nov 9th almost sounds like my life...lol.... or maybe it means the Chaos spy agency on the old Get Smart tv show. lol I'll just eat a cupcake on Vanilla cupcake day!!

  18. Definitely International Day for Tolerance!!!!


  19. My favorite day is Nov. 24th!! It's my wedding/anniversary day. This year it lands on Thanksgiving & is also our 20th Anniversary. This will be the best day for quite some time!!

    Thanks Roni for giving us four years of your wonderful talent!!I've been here for almost all of them!!!

  20. I love the Thanksgiving celebration you have in US. In my original country, Philippines, we don't celebrate that and also here in Sweden where I live now for a decade. Aside from Thanksgiving celebration, we actually celebrate Father's Day here so that I look forward to for my husband's sake hehhehehehe.

  21. My favourite day in November is the 30th: St Andrews Day (Scotland), my birthday and the birthdate of Winston Churchill. As I'm 1/2 English/ Scottish that's very fitting!

  22. Without a doubt my favorite November celebration is "All Saints" and "All Souls" day also known as "Dia de los Muertos" (Day of the Dead). What better way to honor and remember loved ones that passed then with brightly colored skeletons and sugar skulls...love it!

  23. I like Nov 13th World Kindness Day! Also happens to be my hubby's birthday and he turns 60!


Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
