  • 11 Nov 1821 - Fyodor Dostoyevsky, author of Crime and Punishment
  • 13 Nov 1850 - Robert Louis Stevenson, author of Treasure Island

November Facts:

  • Most, if not all, of the leaves have fallen off the trees in the Northern Hemisphere by the end of November.
  • Throughout much of history, November has often been thought of as a somber month because it signaled the start of winter. People would spend the month storing up their harvest and preparing their food and homes in order to survive the winter.
  • Folklore: If there’s ice in November that will bear a duck, there’ll be nothing after but sludge and muck.


See you next month!
