NovemberThrow Out the Leftovers Day
- The American Thanksgiving was a couple of days ago and it only takes a few days for leftover food to go bad and make you feel ill or give you stomach problems. The thing is, bacteria can grow in any food that needs refrigerating when left at room temperature for longer than two hours. So the idea is after a couple of days of heating and cooling and heating and cooling your left over, it's best to throw them out on this day.

National Chocolates Day
- A day dedicated to one of the most wonderful culinary creations. Known to be the 'food of God', chocolates, are created from coca beans and was introduced by the Spanish explorers in the 16th century. At that time chocolate was used as food and also as currency.

Square Dance Day
- Are you ready to Dosey Do and swing your partner round and round?
This holiday is dedicated to square dancing! Let today be the day you learn to square dance and see for yourself just how fun it is.

Electronic Greetings Day
- Save a letter carrier, save a tree, save a stamp! Today’s the day to send your greetings the free, electronic way, via the Internet.

International Day of Solidarity With The Palestinian People
- At request of the Assembly in 1977, observance is organized by secretary-general in consultation with Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People. Recommendations include a plan for return of the Palestinians to their homes and the establishment of an “independent Palestinian entity.”

Newspaper Day
- By 2007 there were 6580 daily newspapers in the world selling 395 million copies a day. The worldwide recession of 2008, combined with the rapid growth of web-based alternatives, caused a serious decline in advertising and circulation, as many papers closed or sharply retrenched operations.

King Tut's Tomb Opened
- Though several of the foremost excavators over the past century had declared there was nothing left to find in the Valley of the Kings, Howard Carter and his sponsor, Lord Carnarvon, spent a number of years and a lot of money searching for a tomb they weren't sure existed. In November 1922, they found it. Carter had discovered not just an unknown ancient Egyptian tomb, but one that had lain nearly undisturbed for over 3,000 years. What lay within astounded the world.

Czechoslovakia Ends Communist Rule
- Czechoslovakia ended 41 years of one-party Communist rule in 1989, when the Czechoslovak parliament voted unanimously to repeal the constitutional clauses giving the Communist Party a guaranteed leading role in the country and promoting Marxism-Leninism as the state ideology.

First Army-Navy Game
- Army played Navy for the first time in football in 1890, and Navy won, 24–0. Red Emrich scored four touchdowns (worth four points each) and kicked two field goals (worth two points each), and Moulton Johnson added the other touchdown to account for all the scoring.

"Kukla, Fran and Ollie" TV Premiere
- This popular children’s show featured puppets created and handled by Burr Tillstrom and was equally popular with adults. Fran Allison was the only human on the show. Tillstrom’s lively and eclectic cast of characters, called the “Kuklapolitans,” included the bald, high-voiced Kukla, the big-toothed Oliver J. Dragon (Ollie), Fletcher Rabbit, Cecil Bill, Buelah the Witch, Colonel Crackie, Madame Ooglepuss and Dolores Dragon.
