NovemberMen Make Dinner Day
- There are many households in the United States where the man of the house never cooks for his family. This holiday is an attempt to get those men to take one day out of the year and cook dinner for the family. One guaranteed meal cooked by the man of the house one day of the year!

Give up Your Shoulds Day
- For one day, you are invited to give up a certain "should" that leads to stress, guilt, misery, or any sort of sadness. A "should" is any rigid thought you carry about yourself, the people around you, and the world.

Day of the Dead
- a holiday celebrated mainly in Mexico and by people of Mexican heritage (and others) living in the United States and Canada. Focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and relatives who have died.

All Saints Day
- Roman Catholic Holy Day of Obligation. In honour of all the saints, known and unknown. Commemorates the blessed, especially those who have no special feast days.

National Authors Day
- "By celebrating an Authors’ Day as a nation, we would not only show patriotism, loyalty, and appreciation of the men and women who have made American literature possible, but would also encourage and inspire others to give of themselves in making a better America."

National Family Literacy Day
- Family literacy programs bring parents and children together in the classroom to learn and support each other in efforts to further their education and improve their life skills.

National Cook for Your Pets Day
- With all the pet food recalls and contamination concerns, this day focuses on pet nutrition and encourages people to make sure their pets are properly fed. Treat your pet to a nutritious home-cooked meal today!

National French Fried Clam Day
- In 1916 Chubby invented the fried clam and presented his new delicacy—clams from the shell coated with cornmeal and deep fried in a kettle—during the 4th of July parade in Essex, MA. It has been said that deep fried clams are to New England what barbecue is to the South.

World AIDS Day
- dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. AIDS has killed more than 25 million people, with an estimated 38.6 million people living with HIV, making it one of the most destructive epidemics in recorded history.
