NovemberDaylight Savings Time Ends
- Did you remember to turn back your clocks on Saturday? The Energy Policy Act of 2005 extended the period of daylight saving time beginning in 2007. Many people use the popular rule “Spring forward, fall back” to remember which way to turn their clocks.

International Tongue Twister Day
- According to Guinness World Records the hardest tongue-twister in the English language is "The sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep's sick." Although others claim the tongue-twister "The seething sea ceaseth and thus the seething sea sufficeth us," is the hardest. What's your favourite tongue twister?

Zero Tasking Day
- Instead of filling that extra 60 minutes you gained (when we turned back the clocks) with more work and stress, use that hour to do nothing but take a breath, relax, re-energize, and refresh.

Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day
- Chocolate can provide natural health-promoting substances called flavonoids. Almonds help to improve your cholesterol levels. So, bittersweet chocolate with almonds is good for you, right!? On this special day, don't question this logic... just enjoy!

Hug a Bear Day
- A perfect time to pamper your teddy bear with a big, warm hug. Then you could give all your best friends a big bear hug!

Notary Public Day
- an American holiday honoring notary publics. A notary public is an officer who can administer oaths and statutory declarations, witness and authenticate documents, and perform certain other acts depending on the jurisdiction.

Little League Girls Day
- A ruling by Sylvia Pressler, hearing examiner for the New Jersey Civil Rights Division on Nov. 7, 1973, was later upheld in the Superior Court, leading to Little League Baseball’s admittance of girls into its programs. Until then, Little League regulations had prohibited girls from participating, and the change led to greater opportunities, such as those for the 10 girls who played on teams that have reached the Little League Baseball World Series.

Drum, Dance & Pray for Peace Day
- We pray PEACE, Peace in our families, Peace in our communities, Peace in our nations, Peace in our world, And peace in ourselves. Let us never speak lightly of Peace, but remind us that what divides us is far less important than what unites us.

"Face the Nation" TV Premiere
- Face the Nation is one of the longest-running news programs in the history of television, having premiered on CBS on November 7, 1954. Each Sunday the moderator interviews newsmakers on the latest issues and delivers a short topical commentary at the end of the broadcast.

First Black Governor Elected
- In 1989, L. Douglas Wilder was elected governor of Virginia, becoming the first elected black governor in US history. Wilder had previously served as lieutenant governor of Virginia, becoming the first black elected to statewide office in the South since Reconstruction.
