Holidays in the Month of November | South Central PA Moms

National Holidays


Each month we share National Holidays and Awareness Days that are celebrated during that month.

November 3rd – National Stress Awareness Day

Everyone has stress and some stress is good. Stress is our body’s way of protecting itself from harm. But too much stress can harm our mental and physical health. National Stress Awareness Day is meant to bring attention to and reduce stress factors in your life. 

November 5th – National Love Your Red Hair Day 

Did you know that less than 2% of the world’s population has red hair? Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett and yours truly celebrate this day! Over the years my hair color has changed quite a bit but I was born with red hair! 






November 7th – Daylight Saving Time Ends

Daylight saving time ends on Sunday, November 7th at 2 am which means it is time to set our clocks back one hour. Don’t forget to #fallback! 



November 8th – National STEM/STEAM Day

This day is meant to inspire kids to explore their interests in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Nearly all of the 10 predicted fastest growing careers (US Labor Department) are STEM/STEAM related.
