November 2011 Calendar shot

November is here.

Few fascinating facts of November:
*Am from this wonderful place called Karnataka and today we celbrate Kannada Rajyotsava - which literally translates as the "Birth of State Karnataka". For more about this visit Kannada Rajyotsava

* India celebrates children's day on 14th of November - Chacha Nehru's birthday.

* It is the Native American Heritage Month

* Some Men in Australia, (especially in the city of Melbourne) New Zealand, and New Orleans to sport a moustache during the month of November. The custom is known as Movember (Movember being a portmanteau of the words 'Moustache' and 'November'), a fundraising event for men's health issues. [I did not know this :). A friend of mine who returned from Melbourne revealed this piece of information]

*Thanksgiving in US - 4th thursday of November. Well the day after that is the "BLACK FRIDAY" - Shopping day:)

*Birth flower for NOvember is the chrysanthemum.

*2008 Mumbai attacks - 26/11 . Mumbai cannot forget this nor can we.
