Seems like every year at about this time we start to talk about November: One of my favorite months of the year. Or...Top 12 at least. Obviously, this month is all about the greatest holiday of all time: Thanksgiving!!! But there are plenty of other fun ways to fill your time in November. Click READ MORE to find out all about them!


November is Mustache Month, AKA "NoShavember" or "Movember"! Believe it or not, this isn't a holiday devoted to 70's porn, making it so girls don't want to kiss you, or looking like a pedophile, but actually to raise awareness for men's health issues, like prostate cancer and testicular cancer. So I guess you celebrate by growing a mustache and then getting someone to stick their finger up your "hole" and palpate your "balls". Did I mention this wasn't about 70's porn?

November 2nd: Plan Your Epitaph Day!
Never hurts to be prepared. Death is kind of inevitable, so spend today preparing your last, eternal message to the world. If you don't, you may find yourself with an epitaph written by one of your wiseacre friends. Case in point: I know if I wrote someone else's epitaph it would definitely have a fart joke in it.

November 3rd: Sadie Hawkins Day!
Ladies! Are you tired of waiting around for the men to come-a-courtin'? Then Carpe Diem, my friend! That's the latin version of YOLO, for all you youngsters. This is the day where the roles are reversed and the ladies get to ask the men out! This may not seem like a big deal nowadays, but in 1937 when this holiday was first conceived (in a 'Lil Abner strip), believe me it was QUITE a scandal!

November 5th: Guy Fawkes Day!
If you are British, then you know about Guy Fawkes Day from actual life. If you are American, then you know about Guy Fawkes Day from V for Vendetta. Don't deny it. Also: Hackers.

November 6th: Election Day!
If you watch TV, or read the newspaper, or exist, then you know all about this. Time to vote, people!

November 10th: Sesame Street Day!
This marks the anniversary of the first broadcast of Sesame Street in 1969. This is obviously one of the greatest shows ever made, and without it I probably wouldn't even know how to count or rhyme. And as a rapper, I find rhymes to be important.

November 17th: Homemade Bread Day!
If you haven't gotten on the homemade bread bandwagon, then you really should. The bread is the key to everything. Nothing makes me sadder than seeing someone eating a sandwich on inferior, store-bought bread that was baked ten years ago (except seeing an old man eating ice cream all by himself, obviously). Baking bread is so easy, and takes less effort than going to the store to buy bread. If you need some tips 'n tricks, we have many bread books here to get you started. Today is the day!

November 22nd: Thanksgiving!
This is it. The big one. The holiday I look forward to all year long. Thanksgiving. Or, as I like to call it, Gorge Myself to a Disgusting Point on Food and Wine and Immediately Fall Asleep on the Floor Day! If I hear anyone call it "Turkey Day" I am going ballistic on them. Cooking is one of "our things," so if this is your year to be the founder of the feast, come in and check out our cookbook selection!

November 25th: Doctor Who Day! AKA TARDIS Day!
Today marks the anniversary of the first episode of Doctor Who, the longest-running science fiction TV show in history. Some would also say the greatest, but i don't really want to start a flame war here. Whatever your opinion of this show is, you have to give it big-ups for being on TV since 1963, and having a huge influence on every sci-fi show since.

November 24th: Small Business Saturday!
Black Friday is for chumps. This is like Black Friday, but for small businesses (The Alliance). As opposed to stupid, soulless big-box retailers (The Empire). We already have about 1 billion products set up for holiday shopping, so stop in today and I guarantee you will find something great!
