November 22nd - Go for a ride Day Not just a day for cars, buses and motorbikes. Maybe take a horse ride or a steam train, a pre-Christmas sleigh or a bicycle. November 23rd - National Espresso Day For hose who like their coffee a little stronger, than the milky cappuccino celebrated on 8th, this day is for you. November 24th - National Sardines Day Does what it says on the tin. November 25th - Blasé Day Today is a day to be blasé about all those things your not really interested in. (Except bills, those still have to be paid, sorry.) November 26th - National Cake Day ‘Qu’ils mangent de la brioche!’ or, (Let them eat cake!) Probably the most well known quote about cake next to Mr Kipling’s ‘exceedingly good cakes’. It didn’t win Marie Antionette any friends, but it’s still the worlds favourite desert.

November 27th - Black Friday – Day After Thanksgiving The day after thanksgiving is one of the two most lucrative shopping days of the year. (The other being Boxing Day) hence the name ‘black’, which in this context refers to profitable in accountant speak. November 28th - French Toast Day Probably dating back to at least ancient Roman times, or even before, French toast is also known as Spanishtoast, American toast and German toast. It originated in medieval Europe, where eggs and milk were often used to soften stale bread. November 29th - Square Dance Day Grab your partner, dosey doe, swing them ‘round and don’t let go! November 30th - Personal Space Day A day that observes personal boundaries and advocates keeping your distance, this is rather apt in the current climate.

# Monthly observances include: National Novel Writing Month, National Peanut Butter Lovers Month, November (No shave month) National Gratitude Month, Native American Heritage Month and Family Literacy Month.

Poppy Flynn was born in Buckinghamshire, UK and moved to Wales at eight years old with parents who wanted to live the 'self-sufficiency' lifestyle. Today she still lives in rural Wales and is married with six children. Poppy's love of reading and writing stemmed from her parents' encouragement and the fact that they didn't have a television in the house. "When you're surrounded by fields, cows and sheep, no neighbors, no TV and the closest tiny village is four miles away, there's a certain limit to your options, but with books your adventures and your horizons are endless."
