November by escume November by escume
Welcome November, the eleventh month of the year! Originally positioned as the ninth month of the year, it retained the name “novem” meaning nine.

Many end-of-harvest festivals associated with death and fertility were celebrated this month across Eurasia. Traditional events include All Souls Day, Mischief Night, Bonfire Night and Remembrance Day. The Anglo-Saxons called November “wind monath” because the cold winds began to blow. It was also, pleasantly enough, referred to as blood month since the cows were slaughtered for winter food.

One of November’s birthstones, the yellow topaz, is thought to promote happiness and ward against depression. It symbolizes youth, hope, health and friendship. Romans believed wearing it would help eyesight and increase strength and intellect. The chrysanthemum, November’s birth flower, symbolizes secret love, compassion and friendship (particularly in Japan). They were also used to decorate graves on all Souls Day hence the name “flowers of the dead.”

Some important monthly celebrations: international drum month, sweet potato awareness month, movember, and peanut butter lovers month. There seems to be lots of birthdays around this time of year - happy bday to anyone celebrating soon :dance: You guys are supposed to be sharp thinking, dynamic, inquisitive, patient, hard to anger and high-spirited!

I bought a sword at a festival in early November, and I remember looking up at the end of this longer and unique day and seeing that the bronze sunset sky was the same color as its hilt. Since then, I've named it "November Sun." These paintings for the 12 months are singular and inspiring!

I've seen your whole gallery and totally adore your style, though I'm a little disappointed, that in all calendars i've bumped into, November looks a bit... less loved than the majority of the months. I was born at the end of the month and love rainy, snowy and severe weathers, so December and January look totally perfect and detailed. November however, is always some kind of neglected and doesn't have any distinguishable features...

Hovewer, the winter seasons are my new desktop now, they're amazing

November is one of those in between months, and though I don't experience true seasons, I still feel like it'd be a beautiful month! I like rainy and snowy weather as well :)
