There’s Much to be Thankful For in November

November 01, 2011

It’s kind of funny that November happens to be National Peanut Butter Lover’s Month, considering Chicago Real Estate Forum just wrote about the rising price of peanut butter coming this month.

Hopefully, you stocked up on the staple and will have plenty on hand to honor it over the next 30 days. If not, don’t fret, this month has other observances upon which to place your focus.

November is:

*Adopt a Senior Pet Month

*Good Nutrition Month

*Hunger Awareness Month

Had to use this photo entitled, "Elderly Retired Border Collie Dog Thinking About Writing a Novel." November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month and National Novel Writing Month!

*Lung Cancer Awareness Month

*National Adoption Month

*National AIDS Awareness Month

*National American Indian Heritage Month

*National Diabetes Awareness Month

*National Epilepsy Month

*National Georgia Pecan Month

*National Home Care & Hospice Month

*National Homeless Youth Awareness Month

*National Long Term Care Awareness Month

*National Novel Writing Month

*National Pepper Month

*National Raisin Bread Month

*National Stamp Collecting Month

*Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month

*Vegan Awareness Month

Not too much related to Chicago real estate, huh? Don’t worry, there are weekly observances as well:

*November 1-7 is World Communication Week

*November 4-10 is National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week

*November 11-17 is National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week

*November 12-18 is World Kindness Week

*November 18-24 is National Family Week

It's been on your to-do list for months. Might as well bite the bullet and clean it Nov. 15.

*November 19-25 is Better Conversation Week

And, don’t forget the daily observances:

*Nov. 1: National Go Cook For Your Pets Day

Looks like I’ll be busy on the 15th and not busy on the 30th.

On a literal note, November includes:

*6: The end of Daylight Savings Time

*11: Veterans Day

*22: Thanksgiving Day

*22: Turkey-free Thanksgiving Day

*23: Black Friday

Look for information on our site throughout November on some of these observances, and have a fabulous month!
