General Election Day
- Many US state and local government elections are held on this day (1st Tuesday of November), as well as US presidential and congressional elections in the appropriate years.

National Nachos Day/I love Nachos Day
- Nachos originate from the city of Piedras Negras, Mexico. One night in 1943, the wives of ten U.S. soldiers stationed at Fort Duncan arrived at a restaurant called Victory Club after it had already closed for the evening. Restaurant employee Ignacio Nacho Anaya quickly put together whatever he had left in the kitchen for the women, calling them Nachos Especiales.

Basketball Day
- James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, was born in Ontario, Canada on November 6, 1861.

Saxophone Day
- A day to recognize the birth anniversary of Adolphe Sax, Belgian musician, and inventor of the saxophone and the saxotromba. Born at Dinant, Belgium, in 1814, Antoine Joseph Sax, later known as Adolphe, was the eldest of 11 children of a musical instrument builder. Sax contributed an entire family of brass wind instruments for band and orchestra use.

Marooned Without a Compass Day
- How is your sense of direction? Do you often find yourself going around in circles? Do you feel hopelessly lost? Do you know where you are? If any of these questions describe your current state of being, then you are in tune with this special day.

International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict
- the damage to the environment in times of armed conflict impairs ecosystems and natural resources long after the period of conflict, often extending beyond the limits of national territories and the present generation.

The Phil Donahue Show TV Premiere
The first talk show with audience participation went on the air on this date in 1967 at Dayton, OH. The first guest interviewed by host Phil Donahue was atheist Madalyn Murray O'Hair.
