It's November people! Yes, just two months before we close out 2021. Wild, right?

NOVEMBER MEANS THESE 10 THINGS IN MASSACHUSETTS

 

1. ELECTION DAY

2. THE CLOCKS CHANGE

So, do we gain or lose an hour of sleep? Can anyone remember? We GAIN an hour on Sunday, November 7 at 2:00 a.m. when we turn the clocks BACK one hour as Daylight Saving Time comes to an end.

3. VETERAN'S DAY

People often confuse Veteran's Day with Memorial Day. Veteran's Day is when we, as a nation, pay homage to anyone who has served in the U.S. military, not just the ones who gave the ultimate sacrifice (Memorial Day).
