7 Cool Things You Didn't Know About November

Here's to the month that gets skipped every year.


When we think November, we think Thanksgiving, fall, cuffing season, etc. Well, there is actually a lot more to this month than what meets the eye. Although the 11th month, November was originally the 9th month on the Roman calendar. The roots can be traced back to the original roman name for the month: "novem", meaning nine. I know, crazy. Although the line between fall and winter is sometimes blurry, November is also officially the last complete month of autumn. The month of scorpio and sagittarius has much more to it than just the birth stone of topaz. November is an awesome month that deserves more recognition, as it is often skipped over due to the anticipation of Christmas. Let's spread the love and give November some attention.
