NovemberClean Out Your Refrigerator Day
- a reminder to us all to clean out that fridge at least once a year. Toss out the old food and wash down the shelves and walls of the fridge too. Front to back, top to bottom. What mysterious food did you find in the back of your refrigerator today?

National Guacamole Day
- today is a good day for making homemade Guacamole Dip and share it with your friends and family. We all love guacamole parties so start planning that chip n' dip party.

Educational Support Personnel Day
- to recognize and focus attention on the support of educational assistants, substitute teachers, clerical and technical employees, custodians and food service workers.

Loosen Up, Lighten Up Day
- A day to remind people of all the benefits of joy and laughter. Find something that will leave you in the calmest state of mind whether it is hanging out with the family for hot chocolate and game night or sitting in a corner by yourself somewhere.

National American Teddy Bear Day
- Today is Ted's 105th birthday. These cuddly, snuggly plush toys have long been favorite to children, and grownups everywhere. Celebrate by remembering your favorite teddy bear moments and sharing them with someone else, maybe with your child. This is a great time to give the kids and other loved ones in your life a teddy bear as a way of bonding and encouraging memorable times together.

Spirit of NSA Day
- The National Speakers Association (NSA) has designated today as a national day of advocacy encouraging professional speakers to support one another. NSA members are encouraged to focus on giving back, providing genuine support to speaking colleagues and taking time to connect, help, mentor or refer business to other members without any expectation of reciprocation.

World Diabetes Day
- explore new ways to raise awareness of the global burden of diabetes and develop sustainable health policies that generate value-based outcomes for people with diabetes.

National Young Reader's Day
- an annual reminder of the benefits and rewards of reading. To celebrate, schools across the country are hosting "celebrity" read-ins where local heroes - whether it be a fire fighter, policeman, someone in the armed forces or any former young reader - read a favorite children’s book to the students.

Blood Transfusion Birthday
- Samuel Pepys, writing in his famous diary, records the first description of a blood transfusion in 1666. His observations of the dog-to-dog transfusion were made barely four decades after English physician William Harvey declared that blood circulated through the body with the heart acting as the pump.

Operation Room Nurse Day
- honors those important nurses, who care for patients before, during and immediately after surgery. It's a very important role, during a period where a patients comfort and life is in another person's hands.

Moby Dick's Birthday
- On this day in 1851, Moby-Dick, a novel by Herman Melville about the voyage of the whaling ship Pequod, is published by Harper & Brothers in New York. Moby-Dick is now considered a great classic of American literature and contains one of the most famous opening lines in fiction: "Call me Ishmael." Initially, though, the book about Captain Ahab and his quest for a giant white whale was a flop.

Prince Charles' Birthday
- The Prince Charles, Prince of Wales (Charles Philip Arthur George - born 14 November 1948) is the eldest child of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Since 1952, he has been heir apparent to the thrones of the Commonwealth realms.

Streetcar Birthday 1832
- Some of the earliest streetcars appeared in New York City in 1832. These streetcars were an animal railway usually using horses and sometimes mules to haul the cars, usually two as a team. Rarely other animals were tried, including humans in emergency circumstances.
