Daily Holidays - November 5

National Doughnut Day November 5 is one of two National Doughnut Days that are celebrated by doughnut lovers across the nation. The first Friday in June is the other day that doughnuts are the star of the show. http://nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/

Gunpowder Day Known as Guy Fawkes Night or Fireworks Night, Gunpowder Day focuses on the plot by Guy Fawkes and other conspirators to blow up Britain’s parliament in 1605. Rebelling against the persecution of Catholics by King James I, they planned to kill the monarch during his visit to parliament. But the scheme was foiled and the traitors executed. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/gunpowder-day/

Love Your Red Hair Day Many redheads have felt like outcasts for having red hair. National Love Your Red Hair Day is designed to empower redheads to feel confident, look amazing and rock their beauty. Red hair is more than a color, it’s a lifestyle. http://nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/

Men Make Dinner Day This day was created for the men who do not know their way around the kitchen and are not familiar with cooking appliances, as well as for the women in their lives who need a break. http://nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/


Daily Holidays - November 4

National Candy Day National Candy Day is observed annually on November 4th. Candies come in numerous colors, shapes, sizes and varieties and have a long history in popular culture.

It was in the late 13th century that the Middle English word candy began to be used, coming into English from the Old French cucre candi, derived in turn from Persian Qand and Qandi, cane sugar.

People use the term candy as a broad category that includes candy bars, chocolates, licorice, sour candies, salty candies, tart candies, hard candies, taffies, gumdrops, marshmallows and much more.

Way back in time, before sugar was readily available, candy was made from honey. The honey was used to coat fruits and flowers to preserve them or to create forms of candy. There is still candy that is served in this form today, but it is typically seen as a garnish. http://nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/

Stress Awareness Day Stress affects us all, and no more so than in the workplace. The chemicals, adrenaline and hormones which build up in our systems in response to the pressures of everyday life have no way to dissipate in our modern lives, and the effects of this can be serious enough to cause significant physical and psychological damage.

Stress Awareness Day aims to promote awareness of these particularly modern challenges, and to aid individuals and organisations in changing behaviours and lifestyles which may lead to excessive stress. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/stress-awareness-day/

Use Your Common Sense Day Thanks to Bud Bilanich for creating Use Your Common Sense Day on the birth date of Will Rogers, which encourages us to use applied common sense – because “common sense ain’t that common“. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/use-your-common-sense-day/


Election Day

A reminder to those with elections for local issues to be sure to get out to the polls today and make your voice heard.

Daily Holidays - November 3

Sandwich Day celebrates the ultimate convenience food. Why not try something a little different in your lunchbox today? https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/sandwich-day/

Jelly Fish Day Although Jellyfish Day may sound a bit odd to some, it only makes sense to celebrate an invertebrate that has been on this earth for million of years longer than humans. So, this event is meant to honour our slightly slimy counterparts that can sometimes cause a bit of consternation at the beach. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/jellyfish-day/

Housewife’s Day Celebrating this day will naturally revolve around the housewife or homemaker, and rightfully so. If you are a stay-at-home wife or husband, feel free to treat yourself to a day spa. You deserve it, for all of the floors you’ve washed, all of the diapers you’ve changed, and all of the dinners you’ve cooked! Go on, don’t feel guilty, everyone needs a break every now and then, and don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise! Find someone trustworthy to watch your children of you have any, and take the day off to enjoy yourself getting a massage, reading book, or just sipping some coffee or wine without having to worry about all of the things that need to be done and whether you’ll have time to do them before your spouse gets home. This day is about you, so make sure you relax fully and recharge your batteries so you can be fresh and ready to start again the next day. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/housewifes-day/

Cliche’ Day A cliché is a phrase used over and over and over and over, or an element of artistic work that occurs in films or music just as often. So is there a better candidate for a Day of the Year than ‘Cliché Day’? After all, it comes up over and over and over and over, just like its namesake! If you’re the kind of person who tries to avoid tired old clichés for fear of sounding stupid, this is the day to get them all out of your system in one bound and never have to think about them again till next year. Cliché Day is the day to advise your brother to ‘seize the day’ (or just exclaim ‘YOLO’ at random moments), accuse your spouse of being ‘drunk as a skunk’, tell your best friend she ‘means the world to you’. In a nutshell, it’s all fine and dandy on this particular day, so go with the flow.


Daily Holidays - November 2

National Deviled Egg Day There are many ways to prepare eggs, but one of the most delicious is to make them into deviled eggs. If you haven’t tried this method before, the perfect day to start is Deviled Egg Day. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/deviled-egg-day/

Job Action Day Finding the perfect job can be difficult; never mind trying to get back into work after a period of unemployment! Job Action Day aims not to help people take action to get into work and to find a job which challenges them and makes use of their skill set, but to encourage you to think about if you’re in the right job, and if not, what actions you might take to progress towards your perfect job or career. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/job-action-day/


Daily Holidays - November 1

National Deep Fried Clam Day In 1865 fried clams were found on the menu of the Parker House hotel restaurant in Boston, Massachusetts, so it is known that fried clams have been served and enjoyed for more than 140 years. Now, on November 1, we observe National Deep Fried Clams Day. http://nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/

National Vinegar Day A common household product that is mostly used for cooking and is found in most homes across America is observed each year on November 1 as it is National Vinegar Day. http://nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/

National Brush Day National Brush Day is observed annually on November 1st. Sometimes referred to as National Brush Your Teeth Day, National Brush Day is a reminder to all individuals to follow the American Dental Associations guidelines. http://nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/

Zero Tasking Day The extra hour we get when daylight savings times change is often heralded as an opportunity for extra productivity, activity and ‘doing’. However, given that we’re all already ‘owed’ an hour every other time it changes, it seems a little unfair to expect us to work through it – as such, Zero Tasking Day is designed to dedicate this hour to ‘me time’; encouraging rest, relaxation and a distinct lack of work. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/zero-tasking-day/

World Vegan Day Along with celebrating the start of the Vegan Society, Vegan Day is an opportunity to promote the benefits of a vegan diet and veganism in general. The term Vegan was coined by Donald Watson and derived from the word Vegetarian. At that time, the differentiation was that Vegans did not consume dairy products. Later this extended to eggs, and by 1951, veganism had become a movement of people who did not partake in the exploitation of animals.

Orphan Sunday Orphan Sunday is a time to stand up for the orphans of the world. In truth, there are likely no more vulnerable human beings in the entire world than those thousands upon thousands of children in this world who have no mother or father, due to all sorts of tragedies that have occurred in their lives, ranging from accidents, to sicknesses, to war. Whatever the reason, orphaned children need our help in any way we can offer it. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/orphan-sunday/

Author’s Day Celebrate literature in all its forms on Authors’ Day, and show your appreciation for the incredibly hard work put in by the authors behind your favourite writings. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/authors-day/
