Welcome to the ultimate selection of free printable calendars for November 2016! It is pretty quiet month, if we compare it with October or December, but this doesn't mean we can't find interesting facts from the history.
Did you know Anglo Saxons called it 'a wind month' (because of the cold winds which start blowing in November) and 'a blood month' (because of cattle being slaughtered in this time of year)?
November 2016 Calendar
November can still offer many sunny days (of course they are getting shorter, so we should size them as best as we can), but it is already cold, so we can enjoy the beautiful view on colorful scenery as presented on our monthly calendars above and below with a hot cup of tea.
You probably already know that, but just for the record November got its name after Roman number nine (novem). It was ninth month in calendar before January and February were added to the beginning of the year.
How about a premium calendar for your best friend who also happens to be a golden retriever lover? The one above is fully customizable, what means you can buy it as it already is or upload your photos and add your inscriptions. Despite all the fanciful apps for mobile devices a good old plain wall calendar on quality paper with lots of space for writing down appoointments and other obligations still plays important role in life planing.
By the way... Did you ever wonder why leaves change colors in autumn? The main reason is chlorophyll (it gives them green color) which is used to make food for plants (glucose) in the process called photosynthesis. When days are becoming shorter, there is no need for photosynthesis anymore, so chlorophyll slowly decompose and other pigments (of yellow and orange tones) become visible.
Some plants have also some glucose (it is colorless) in their leaves and this disintegrate into lively red colors (the process is similar to making a caramel). So these cute printable calendars for November 2015 will remind you of some chemistry too:)
Thanksgiving is one of the most celebrated holidays in USA. It falls on the fourth Thursday in November, which this year comes on 24th. It's an opportunity to share the thankfulness and together with Christmas it's the most family oriented holiday. The Thanksgiving themed place cards like the one, presented above, are one of the best ways to ignite the holiday spirit right from the beginning.
Monthly Calendars With Flowers And Nature Themes for November 2016
November is a colorful month and after the harvesting season we have plenty (hopefully) of food. If we didn't use all the pumpkins for Halloween, we can use them for many other things. They are edible and useful in cosmetics. Being packed with vitamins and minerals they have important health benefits too.
We are already familiar with apples, without doubt the major fruit of the fall, but what can we say about grapes? There is actually at least one important holiday related with them: St. Martin's Day, the day when juice made of grapes symbolically turns into wine.
St. Martin's Day is officially celebrated on November 11th, but most people take time to try young wine on the Sunday, nearest to 11th. When this date comes in he middle of the week, most of wine lovers celebrate it on the Sunday before and the Sunday after!
Thanksgiving's meal is one of the major events of the year for millions of families in USA. Now you can add a little extra to initial mood setting with custom plates with appropriate autumn motifs. They are made of high quality paper, but won't work for soups. On the other hand, if you are looking for a special touch with a food basket with dried fruits or just want to serve an appetizer on the porch, you may do it with a message of your choice.
November can also be great time to explore the world. Famous cities, impressive buildings, amazing monuments... You name it, we got it!
We are approaching the end of the year and if you are thinking about a practical gift with personal touch, don't hesitate to check a lovely customizable mouse pad (see above). It's design is made of two layers - a lovely photo and a handy yearly calendar for 2017. You can customize it with your very own photography (and change calendar as well, if you wish), what instantly transforms an useful item into a precious keepsake. There are also many other possibilities to express your creativity with just few clicks on the mouse and make something trully memorable for your friend or family member.
Calendar For Kids
If you need a free kids calendar (free for personal use), you can choose from several ready made versions, with different animals in corners and in different colors: pink and blue.
We actually liked the teddy bear so much, we made additional three calendars for children with the same theme, but this time in much bigger 'role'.
