For people who need to celebrate anything but Christmas
By Brittney MacDonald, Life & Style Editor
Does Christmas just rub you the wrong way? Are you sick of all the carols and fruit cakes, despite the fact that it’s not even December yet? Well, I hear you! Christmas has never really been my favourite holiday, and it seems people are getting into it earlier and earlier every year. Luckily, you can delay the Feliz Navidad festivities a little longer, because November is actually packed with little known holidays and dedicated days!
November 15 is clean out your refrigerator day! Not everyone’s favourite, but it needs to be done.
November 16 is have a party with your bear day, but you better break out the burgers because it’s also global fast food day!
November 17 is particularly exciting and drama filled, as it is world unfriend day. Better login to facebook and see who’s ripe for the culling on your friendslist.
November 18 is occult day—get your fortune read, break out the ouija board, and summon Beelzebub from the fiery depths of Hell.
November 19 is international men’s day, when we celebrate men and focus on issues affecting them.
November 20 is name your PC day—mine’s named “Her Royal Highness” because I think it’s important to make inanimate objects feels good about themselves.
November 21 is world television day, but who watches TV anymore, anyway?
November 22 is go for a ride day, which is actually really exciting now that Vancouver has Mobi bike rental stations at so many stops along the seawall.
November 23 is Fibonacci day, and if you don’t know who Leonardo Fibonacci is you probably aren’t a math major.
November 24 is celebrate your unique talent day. Whether you can play the piano or eat seven full-sized tacos, get out there and show the world what you can do!
November 25 is a yummy one—not only is it parfait day, but it’s also maize day! Coincidently, it also happens to be world flossing day.
November 26 is cake day—simple, to the point, and delicious!
November 27 is pins and needles day. No, not a day to celebrate that weird feeling you get when a body part falls asleep, but actual pins and needles. If you’re a seamstress, this is one of the most exciting days of the year.
November 28 is French toast day, which seems like the perfect excuse to have a really awesome breakfast that morning.
November 29 is a double feature! It’s both electronic greetings day and square dancing day! So text your best friend that morning winky face emoji, and get your cowboy boots on!
And finally, November 30 is stay home because you’re well day. Lie and call in sick—you deserve it!
