1. No Shave November!

Beards, mustaches, 5 o’clock shadows — we just can’t get enough. Even though some won’t admit it, we ladies love some scruff on our men! And this is the month we can expect to see more of it. That’s because November is Prostate Awareness Month!

Every year, around the world, No-Shave November is observed. It’s an awareness-raising campaign that encourages everyone to embrace their hair, which many cancer patients lose. Throughout the month, men allow their hair to grow wild and free. Many people also donate the money they typically spend on shaving, grooming, and maintenance of their hair and beard.

The funds collected under the initiative are used to educate people about cancer prevention, saving lives, and aiding those fighting the battle. The month-long campaign aims to evoke conversation and raise awareness about cancer.

2. Remembrance Day On The 11th

Every year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we gather in memorial parks, community halls, workplaces, schools, and homes to stand in honour of all who have fallen. Together, we observe a moment of silence to mark the sacrifice of the many who have served their country and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve.

3. Christmas Music and Decorations!

It begins. The holiday season is in the air. Christmas trees go up, houses are covered from top to bottom in lights, classic holiday movies are on TV, Christmas music is playing everywhere you go, and people in the happy holiday spirit are everywhere!

4. Noella Festival

The Noella Festival Runs November 19th to December 31st!

Christmas in Downtown Barrie is a feeling you just have to experience. The Noella Festival gives you six weeks of family fun to check out! We would like to thank our event partners who collectively bring the community a fantastic kick-off to the festive season. This includes the Barrie Chamber of Commerce, the Barrie Rotary Club, the City of Barrie and most importantly our Downtown Barrie businesses! Together, they all make this event a very special time of the year!

Head to Downtown Barrie on Saturday, November 19th for the kick-off of this year’s Noella Festival!

The 35ft Winter Tree at Meridian Place will be back again for the Tree Lighting Celebration and the BARRIE SANTA CLAUS PARADE starts at 5 pm.

5. Cuffing and Cuddling Season.

The cold weather means more single people will be looking for short term partners to keep close during the winter season (i.e. cuffing). For those who are already paired off, the frigid weather usually means more cuddles.

Either way, what could be better than some Netflix and chill on a cold November day?

6. National Peanut Butter Lovers Month

Pretty self-explanatory, but peanut butter is probably one of the greatest things in the world. Be sure to eat tons of it this month in celebration!

With so much going on, November is shaping up to be a great month!
