Well November is here and the year seems to be speeding by, already we have seen,
10 Months 303 days 7,272 hours 436,320 minutes.
And most worrying there is only 54 days to Christmas (sigh!)
According to the Georgian calendar, November is the eleventh month of the year. But November comes from the Latin word root “novem”, which means nine. It was originally the ninth month in the Roman calendar. The Anglo-Saxons referred to November as the 'wind month' and the 'blood month' - probably because this is the month they killed their animals for food.
Lots of activities come to a halt in November. The crops have been harvested and either put in storage, or sent to processing plants or mills. Farmers already know if their year has been successful or not. Football is the main sport of the month.
The topaz is the birthstone for November.
The chrysanthemum is the flower for the month of November.
Scorpio and Sagittarius are the astrological signs for November.
