October is behind us and soon Daylight Savings Day will be too. Don’t forget to set those clocks back! Now most of us are digging around in our dresser drawers for hoodies and in our closets searching for sweaters. Here in Florida, we are enjoying that first autumn breeze and cooler air as we prepare for our Thanksgiving Day festivities. More joggers are out and about. And all the stale air is being swept away as opened windows invite fresh air and new hope. Mickey and Minnie will be celebrating their birthdays; while the snowbirds fly here for the winter. And I have happy thoughts of some super good chili and oyster crackers…yummy!

Although synonymous with Thanksgiving Day and Veterans Day. November has 267 special days of awareness and observances to celebrate, but we will only name a few. And out of those 267, there are 35 monthly observations. Such as Family Stories Month, Manatee Awareness Month, Military Family Month, PTA Healthy Lifestyles Month, National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, National Diabetes Month, National Novel Writing Month, and National Peanut Butter Lovers Month. You will find the complete list with our pilgrim turkey Cranberry.

… World Kindness Week is one that really needs to be remembered.

For all, you writers or readers out there today is National Author’s Day. For the believers today All Saints Day is celebrated and tomorrow so is All Souls Day. Let us not forget Hanukkah. With all that’s happening in the world today, World Kindness Week is one that really needs to be remembered. A lot of children are blessed to have parents and live in a home, but many aren’t. As we start that early shopping let’s not forget World Orphans Day.

On a historical note, as we in America celebrate the Marine Corps Birthday and remember Veteran’s Day. Canada marks Remembrance Day. When we are all rallying around that dinner table and are blessed to still be alive and in a place of so many freedoms, let us not forget those who made those freedoms possible.

A Little November Trivia. The name November originally translates into the “ninth month” in Latin and was the ninth out of ten months of the original Roman Calendar back in 45 BC. Years later when the Julian calendar was adopted two extra months were added and November was pushed back to be the eleventh month of the calendar year.

May the Lord bless you as He did last month. May there be happy memories around your dinner table. May your table be filled with plenty. May your family be healthy and prosperous and there be warmth and peace in your homes. In the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
