-- 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.

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 Nov.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!!

What Do You Love About America Day
- Suppose the president came to your town and asked you to tell him what you love about America. What would you say?

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
