-- Softball originated in Chicago on Thanksgiving Day. A group of about twenty young men had gathered in the gymnasium of the Farragut Boat Club in order to hear the outcome of the Harvard-Yale football game. After Yale's victory was announced (18-7) and bets were paid off, a man picked up a stray boxing glove and threw it at someone, who hit it with a pole. George Hancock, usually considered the inventor of softball, shouted, Let's play ball!

Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day
- We all have at least one extraordinary - and many times weird - ability. Now is the time to get out there and indulge in yours.

D.B. Cooper Day (1971)
- Late in the afternoon of November 24, 1971, an inconspicuous middle-aged man wearing a plain suit and dark glasses boarded Flight 305, home-based in Minnesota. D.B. Cooper gained sudden notoriety as the perpetrator of the FBI's only major unsolved skyjacking. He became the first and only successful parachuting skyjacker in American history, successful because he disappeared with $200,000 in ransom money.

Comedy Hall of Fame Birthday (1993)
- On November 24, 1993, there was the first annual Comedy Hall of Fame induction ceremony, as taped from NBC. Inducted were George Burns, Carol Burnett, Walter Matthau, Milton Berle, Red Skelton, and Jonathan Winters. Quite a line-up!!

Death Comes to Sesame Street (1983)
- In 1983, when the actor who played the kindly storekeeper Mr. Hooper on Sesame Street (Will Lee) died at age 74

On the Origin of Species Published
- Charles Darwin's monumental work, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life, was published on November 24, 1859, by London publisher John Murray. The print run of 1,250 (priced at 15 shillings) sold out the same day.
