 november is special!!!  —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.197.91.151 (talk) 19:32, 26 February 2009 (UTC) 

Discussion[edit]

Tuesday after the first Monday != first Tuesday. US general elections are held on the former day, not on the latter. See http://usinfo.state.gov/dhr/democracy/elections/elections_faq.html (maybe this link should be in the article?) eritain 17:03, 8 August 2005 (UTC)

Thomas Hood poem[edit]

Last night (November 24), I added a reference to the poem by Thomas Hood on November, but it seems to have gone now. Does any one know why? ACEOREVIVED (talk) 20:18, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Many, many apologies, I had a look at I saw the section was still there - I must have missed it when I looked over the weekend! I have now given it its own sub-section, to make it more visible, so that careless readers (such as me) do not miss it again. ACEOREVIVED (talk) 17:03, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

I made a better link for it... —Preceding unsigned comment added by Smarkflea (talkcontribs) 13:18, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Hm. I'm pretty sure that January and February are not the months that were added to the Roman calendar, changing November from the ninth to eleventh month. July and August, named after Julius and Augustus Caesar, were added after the creation of the Empire. Can anyone verify this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 205.170.15.246 (talk) 23:09, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

You are more than right! There's no need to verify anything but if you need a verification of any kind you will find it under GREGORIAN CALENDAR. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.24.185.130 (talk) 21:37, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Events!![edit]

I know it's impossible to include all the important dates in the 'events' section but some kind of consistency is vital. For example you say:

'1 November – Day of the leaders of the Bulgarian national revival (IN BOLD)'

but you omit as important date:

11 November - Independence Day in Poland!!

I'm more than sure there are other national events not mentioned in the article and I feel it might seem unfair to some (me for the start). I hope someone will finally do some thorough research. Good luck. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.24.185.130 (talk) 21:44, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

no shave november[edit]

Why is there no "No Shave November" article?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mlanier131 (talkcontribs) 21:05, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Huh?[edit]

This article states: "November is associated with the month of Spring in the Southern Hemisphere and Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. Therefore November in the Southern Hemisphere is the seasonal equivalent of May in the Northern Hemisphere and vice versa." What the heck does "the month of Spring" mean? Last time I checked Spring was a season, not a month - you might argue that in the southern hemisphere it's like "a month in Spring" but that's a different construction. It does raise a mildly interesting point, is Autumn defined as being that period from late September to late December everywhere or do our friends below the equator have the seasonal names turned around to match the local climate of the seasons? Is Christmas a holiday in Winter in the southern hemisphere or is it a Summer holiday down there? Is down there even appropriate - over there, around there....Jmdeur (talk) 14:00, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

Rain[edit]

I think it might be worth noting the month long observance of the November Rain —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.63.2.71 (talk) 16:12, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

hidden text[edit]

! The origin of the name may also be attributed to Vedic culture. In Sanskrit, "Nov" refers to "nine" and Ambar means "sky"."Nov-Ambar" referred to the ninth sky or month in the Vedic culture." – I am not sure about that, as other Roman months were named with Latin numeral names in mind (SEPTEMber=seventh, OCTOber=eighth, DECEMber=tenth) and have nothing to do with Vedic culture. This sounds more like it is merely a correlation of the fact that Sanskrit and Latin are Indo-European languages (that occasionally have similar words), rather than an influence/origin.

Pronunciation[edit]

noh-VIM-bər? Really? My assessment of my ideolect is that it’s pronounced noh-VEM-bər—or is that just a spelling-influenced misperception? Looking at the history now I see it’s been a bit of a point of contention—personally I view noh-VIM-bər as nonstandard and dialectical, and all the dictionaries I can find seem to bear this out, although there is, of course, the Received Pronunciation /noʊˈvɛmbɚ/ which it seems like the IPAc-en template is respelling? Anyway… Until we can find a prescriptive text showing it as noh-VIM-bər I think it should be left as is. —Wiki Wikardo 23:35, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
