A Full List of November Holidays and Observances in 2022

November is full of more special days than just the big Thanksgiving holiday and Black Friday shopping extravaganza. That’s why we’ve taken the liberty of rounding up all the other holidays and observances that you can also find time to acknowledge this month. In addition to the regularly recognized federal holidays, this month you and your family and friends can also observe lesser known events, such as World Vegan Day and National Pickle Day. You can also spread awareness through holidays like National Cancer Awareness Day and National Family Literacy Day. Or you can even try something new by taking part in Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day or Odd Socks Day.

November also marks the observance of Native American Heritage month, also known as American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month.
