If you are an October lover like me, you are probably feeling a little blue right about now.

I get so excited about Halloween every single year. I celebrate all day, everyday throughout the month. Scary movies are on every channel. Candy is in every store, office and building you walk in to. You never know what spooky sight you will see when you walk out your front door. It's exciting and fun and there isn't any other month like it.

When November rolls around, I get a little bit sad because I know it will be a long time until I can celebrate Halloween again BUT I decided I wanted to look on the bright side this time around.

November is a great month, after all. It's the time where we can eat to our heart's desire and don't have to freeze our butts off just yet (usually).

What else makes November awesome? Here are five reasons.

Until next time, October. You've been fun.

    Thanksgiving

    I am already dreaming of Thanksgiving food. What is better than turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and sweet potatoes, all on one plate? Enough said.

    Black Friday

    It seems ironic that we get so excited about shopping the day after we celebrate Thanksgiving but here we are. Black Friday is the best time of the year to buy electronics and score special deals on just about everything else. Our movie collection is about to get a whole lot better.

    It's Still Fall (Technically)

    The Holiday Spirit

    Prior to Halloween, I believe it is unacceptable to put out Christmas decorations or listen to holiday music. While November may be a tad too soon as well, it's much more acceptable. Go play 'Let It Snow' to your heart's desire. We won't judge.
