November Holidays

month banner

Here at National Today, we're celebrating Thanksgiving by giving thanks for all the amazing holidays in November! It's one of the most eventful months of the year—it's a time to shop on Black Friday, give back on Giving Tuesday, and eat lots of turkey on Thanksgiving. Every four years, we get the privilege of electing our new president. And, of course, there are those fun quirky holidays that make life worth celebrating, from National Sandwich Day to National Cake Day.

We've got all of these fun national days on our November calendar—so get ready to mark them down!

FOOD: Is a hot dog a sandwich? Find out the answer on National Sandwich Day (November 3). If you're dessert-inclined instead, there are days in November for both National Cake Day (November 26) and National Candy Day (November 4)! Did you know candy dates back all the way to 2000 BC?

CIVIC: Get ready for Thanksgiving (November 23) and the plethora of November shopping holidays that fall close to it—among them Black Friday (November 24) and Cyber Monday (November 25). Americans eat 46 million turkeys each Thanksgiving—will you contribute to this number?

RELATIONSHIPS: One of the most fun national days in November celebrates our most important relationship—the one with ourselves! We're looking forward to celebrating Singles Day (November 11) by treating ourselves to all the products and food we've always wanted.

CAREERS: A million books get published every year, and that's why there's a holiday in November to celebrate America's prolific authors—National Author's Day (November 1). We also celebrate the important men and women who work in STEM on National STEM/STEAM Day (November 8).

Find a complete list of November holidays below, and happy celebrating!
