November is known, of course, for Thanksgiving - one of the best holidays of the year. Everyone looks forward to this late-fall celebration with food, family and friends. What if there were some other days in November worth celebrating? After looking through the calendar, I found some interesting "holidays" to look forward to each November. Here's what I found:

November 2nd: National Plan Your Epitaph Day

Planning your epitaph could be an interesting activity for the beginning of November. Might as well take advantage of this holiday and decide what legacy you want written on your gravestone.

November 6th: National Saxophone Day

One of the best instruments to celebrate - brass on the outside and woodwind on the inside. Take this day to listen to some jazz or maybe learn to play the instrument!

November 7th: International Tongue Twister Day

Whether you’re in unique New York or selling seashells by the seashore, show off your impressive command of diction today. Maybe check out some new tongue twisters and challenge your friends!

November 13th: World Kindness Day

This awesome holiday forces everyone to look at themselves and try to be better. It's a great day to do something kind for one another and do your part to make the world a better place!

November 15th: Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day

Searching through your refrigerator and finding some gross discoveries is always an adventure. Might as well spend the 15th looking for expired foods and old leftovers!

November 18th: Use Less Stuff Day

We always feel like we never have enough stuff, and the advertising industry plays a huge part in this. We most definitely use more stuff than we need. Take the day to figure out what you actually need and how you can reduce your usage of extra things!

November 22nd: National Start Your Own Country Day

The world is a big place, but why not make it even bigger? The holiday celebrates everyone who thinks they will someday create their own nation.

November 23rd: National Day of Listening

Listening is a super important skill that some people do not always utilize! This day was made to especially thank teachers and leaders who offer their time to talk to groups about important issues.

November 29th: National Square Dance Day

The United States has made square dancing a popular dance at some parties. This is a great day to learn some new dance moves and brush up on your square dancing skills!

Happy holidays!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
