The air is getting chillier, the leaves have all fallen off the trees and the jingling of sleigh bells have slowly started to be heard in the distance. November is here.
November is the 11th month of the year. I don’t know about you, but for me, November is full of transitions. First of all, we should consider the fact that November falls between the two biggest holidays which are Halloween and Christmas and in turn, transforms our television sets into a whirlwind of horror movies meet Christmas classics.
Also, we must consider the idea that November is also a transitional month concerning the weather. As the autumn season passes, the trees are left bare and in many parts of the world, the winter chill starts to creep up as snowflakes gently start to pile up.
Big events happen during November as well. One of these events is the American holiday of Thanksgiving. Another important event during November is Veterans Day. As well, November is also comically referred to as Movember to many men who grow out their whiskers in stylish moustaches in support of men's health.
Besides this, November is loved by people of Hispanic heritage worldwide as Dias De Los Muertos, known in English by Day of the Dead, is practiced by visiting loved ones graves in skull related food and costumes accompanied by vibrant music and dancing. Yes, although November is a tricky month to define, there is always a reason to have a soft spot for this unique month. One way in which you can cozy up to November is with a beautiful, themed, November garden flag. Here are a few ideas to help you get along.
Although snow is not loved by everyone, this element of the upcoming winter season is beautiful to at least look at none the less. That being said, snow begins to show up in many communities during November as it slowly starts to cover up the autumn leaves but only somewhat. Again, as November is a transition month, both snow and leaves can be a beautiful addition to many November flags.
Even though November isn’t tied down to any big holiday in particular, such as October is connected to Halloween or December is connected to Christmas, November does have its special days dotted here and there that keeps people around the world in a warm mood.
One of these festive events happens at the begging of November which is Dias de Los Muertos. Dias de los Muertos translates to Day of the Dead. Day of the Dead is a holiday celebrated in Mexico and the Latin American countries around the world as a day to honour their ancestors. People of Hispanic descent celebrate Dias de Los Muertos by making a shrine for their deceased relatives and stocking it with offerings as well as going to a cemetery dressed as colourful skeletons. Music and dance also play a huge role in Day of the Dead celebrations. Therefore, skull related images and pictures of musical instruments can be a wonderful addition to November themed garden flags.
A yummy holiday that is also celebrated in November is the American Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is celebrated by people residing in the United States to remember the early European settlers who first came to America overseas and were assisted by the Native Americans who taught them how to live off of the land by farming and hunting. Common foods that are eaten during thanksgiving include turkey, corn, apples, pumpkins, pies, stuffing, squashes, cranberries and more which all make beautiful additions to any November themed garden flag. Images of native Americans and pilgrims can also be added to November themed garden flags.
To add on, Veterans Day is another special day that occurs during the jam-packed month of November. Veterans Day is a day that honours soldiers, both who fought and are still fighting, in the many wars that have happened during the history of civilization. As a result image of war-related items, from soldiers to machinery to guns and more, can make a striking addition to any November themed garden flag. If you are looking for a more delicate touch to your November themed garden flag but still, want to honour Veterans Day, then poppies and cross can do just that.
