Your Month In Weird Holidays: November 2013

Welcome to November, the month where fall has a hissy fit and strips the trees of all their leaves. The month The Postal Service prophesied we'll be able to swim in. The month we gain an hour, the month of mustaches, and of course, the little 'ol American tradition called Black Friday.
Now, everyone knows about Thanksgiving — the holiday of fat pants and stuffing more than just the turkey. (Hanukkah is even poking its head out this month.) November is so much more than all the aforementioned, though; there are plenty of holidays to celebrate before and after the big feast. Get your iCals out, because these dates are worth remembering.
