November's Observations and Celebrations

By VerityCU November 01, 2022 Community

Happy November! As we transition into the next month of 2022 we would like to acknowledge the celebrations and observances. 

Below is a list of celebrations and observances throughout November, as well as links to government or nonprofit websites that help provide more education on each topic.

Month-long Observances & Celebrations

Daily Observances & Celebrations

  • Wednesday, November 9th – World Freedom Day: A day acknowledging the fall of the Berlin Wall. As the “Iron Curtain” fell, so did communism in Eastern and Central Europe. This day is recognized every year on November 9th. There are not many resources about this day but here is one from the Federal Register, declaring the day.
  • Friday, November 11th - Veteran's Day: A day to recognize and remember our military veterans. You can learn more at the Department of Veterans Affairs History of Veterans Day site.  
  • Sunday, November 20th - Transgender Day of Remembrance: An annual day of observance to honor the memory of transgender people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence. Learn more at the GLAAD and PFLAG websites. 
  • Thursday, November 24th - Thanksgiving Day: A day to celebrate and feast with family and friends and give thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Lots of resources out there to learn more, but here's one from the Smithsonian.
  • Friday, November 25th - Native American Heritage Day: A day to acknowledge and celebrate our Indigenous friends and family. We celebrate the strength and resiliency of Native Americans today and everyday. Learn more about this day at the Nativehope and Native American Heritage Month websites.
