Its November 2008 (and I feel fine)

Saturday, November 1st, 2008

Its November 1st and the Holidays are fast approaching. So fast in fact the malls and stores have been showing signs of the Holiday Season! And we only celebrated Halloween yesterday!

November begins with Los Dias De Los Muertos, or Days of the Dead (Nov. 01-02). This import from Mexico and South America celebrates family and friends who have passed. Unlike the sorrow and sadness of the US culture of death, Los Dias De Los Muertos is a happy and jubilant time to remember and honor your loved ones. And there’s lots of smiling skeletons too!

Of course the biggest holiday in November is Thanksgiving (US). Celebrated on the 27th , there’s really only 4 weeks to get everything ready! In need of Turkey and stuffing recipes anyone?

And who can forget Black Friday and the beginning of the Christmas season? So start saving up those pennies because it feels like its going to be a quick month!
