This is a continuum from previous articles. If you want to see the November holidays for week 1and week 2, visit here and here (respectively).
15. Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day: It’s time to rid your refrigerator of the all the mold-growing foods and alien-like substances! I’m sorry, though, because that’s not all that is required for a full-out celebration. You also have to clean the actual fridge. I know, I know – not a favorite chore for most people.
National Philanthropy Day: This year (2010) is the 25th anniversary of this observance, which is a special day to recognize the contributions that philanthropy (the effort to increase human well-being) has made in our lives.
16. Have a Party with Your Bear Day: For all those people who have been waiting for a day to celebrate their bear relationships, here’s your chance! Sadly, I can’t promise I’ll be in line to celebrate.
17. Homemade Bread Day: I’m no baker, but I can be a designated taste tester! Back in the day, the only way to eat bread was to make it yourself. Now, you can quickly run to the store and pick up a loaf. Today is the day to bring back the tastiness and wholesomeness of homemade bread.
Take a Hike Day: This day isn’t for telling people off, but instead to encourage others to walk or hike. Walking and hiking are two of the best ways to get outside exercise.
18. Great American Smokeout: Thanks to the American Cancer Society, this year will be 35th Great American Smokeout. This day encourages people to quit smoking – you can plan to start the process by this day, or have this day as a goal date.
19. Have a Bad Day Day: This day was created to for salespeople (who normally have to grudgingly say “Have a good day” on a daily basis) to have a chance to say “Have a bad day”. Other ways of “celebrating” is to insult your co-workers and bosses. Who’d have thought.
20. Absurdity Day: Forget about logic on this day. I suppose the best way to honor absurdity is to do something flat-out weird.
National Adoption Day: November is actually “Adoption Month”, but there is also a specific day for adoption as well. Thousands of adoptions are finalized on this day, giving many children the chance for a new life.
21. World Hello Day: This day is observed in 180 countries and is successfully celebrated when you say “Hello” to ten people. It started in 1973, when World Peace activists responded to the Egypt/Israel conflict by stating that communication is better than fighting.
