1. World Vegan Month
First, we have World Vegan Month. It’s is celebrated in November every year to commemorate “the coining of the term, ‘vegan’ and the founding of The Vegan Society in November 1944”. Kickstarting November with World Vegan Day on 1 November, World Vegan Month is a time to “recognise and celebrate the positive effect plant-based living can have on our planet and to our health”.

2. National Caregivers Appreciation Month
This November is also National Caregivers Appreciation Month. This is “a time to honor the people who give freely of their time and resources in the service of others”. Caregiving for a family member or loved one is often a round-the-clock job. That has an impact, sometimes a significant one, on the caregiver’s life as well. Thus, let’s remember to thank them for everything they do on social media in November.
Pay tribute to and thank caregivers with our Facebook post template.
Next, let’s move on to specific thematic national and international days of celebration. All perfect to celebrate on social media in November.
3. National Author’s Day – 1 November
Whose books are you a fan of? Know some authors amongst your friends? It took Nellie Verne Burt McPherson of the Illinois Women’s Club” 20 years to get National Author’s Day recognized so be sure to pay tribute to authors today!

4. Diwali – 4 November
Diwali, also called Deepavali, is “India’s biggest and most important holiday of the year”. Known as the festival of lights, Diwali is a special time for Hindus, Sikhs and Jains around the world as it celebrates “new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness”.
Wish your fellow Hindu, Sikh and Jain followers a happy Diwali with this Facebook template. Remember to personalize it to suit your brand.
5. Veterans Day – 11 November
11 November is the day to pay respects to all the military veterans who have served. Veterans Day “originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I”. Veterans Day is mostly celebrated in the US. Nevertheless, we think it’s a good time to recognize the sacrifices and show our love to all who have served to thank them for all that they have done.
Commemorate veterans with our drag-and-drop Facebook post template you can easily edit in our design maker.
6. World Kindness Day – 13 November
The Cambridge dictionary defines ‘kind’ as “generous, helpful, and thinking about other people’s feelings”. On 13 November, it’s the day to celebrate “the importance of being kind to each other, to yourself, and to the world.” Recently, there’s a lot of division in society. Hence, we think it’s especially important to celebrate being kind.
Remind your followers to be kind to each other using this illustrated template.
7. International Tolerance Day – 16 November
International Tolerance Day is aimed at “fostering mutual understanding among cultures and peoples”. Commemorated since 1996, the “UN General Assembly adopted Resolution 51/95”, which “affirms that tolerance is neither indulgence nor indifference”. As ToleranceDay.org puts it, “we need to change the way people think and work towards a sustainable future”. We couldn’t agree more!
Use this template to celebrate different cultures around you.
8. Universal Children’s Day – 20 November
First established in 1954, Universal Children’s Day promotes “international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children’s welfare”. With recent times showing us how inequality has affected every child’s rights from “climate change, education and mental health, to ending racism and discrimination”, now’s the time to stand together with children and young people around the world for a better future.
