Take a Hike Day
November 17th is National Take a Hike Day, and taking a hike provides exercise, a chance to appreciate nature, and spend time with a friend. Being spontaneous can be fun when planning a hiking trip, but planning a little bit beforehand can save you a lot of time and energy before, during, and after your trip, as well as aid you in preventing any injury or getting lost. Figure out who’s going with you and the proper difficulty level of the hike, according to who’s going and what you both want out of it. AllTrails is a great resource for planning your next hiking adventure. Check it out!
National Peanut Butter Month
If you enjoy peanut butter, then this month is for you. Whether you love peanut butter cookies, peanut butter sandwiches, or enjoy eating it straight out of the container with a spoon, this is the month to do just that! If you’re tired of those traditional treats, you can try out some different recipes that incorporate this delicious spread!
The fourth Thursday of the month brings November’s biggest and greatest food and gratitude holiday: Thanksgiving! Get in the spirit of the season by telling someone or multiple someones what you appreciate about them this month. Prepare your home for dinner by cleaning it, clearing out your refrigerator, planning your preparation for the various dishes of the meal, and communicating with your guests who is bringing what and when you’re meeting. Considering all these details go into making for a successful day and helping you alleviate the stress levels!
The Monday following Thanksgiving is becoming known as Cyber Monday and has actually surpassed Black Friday as the biggest shopping day of the year! Instead of in-store sales, shopping online is becoming increasingly popular for its convenience and ease. Without the stress of crowds, you can get all of your holiday shopping done on your computer without having to leave your apartment!

Clara and Phillip must now enter a fourth realm to retrieve the key and restore harmony to the unstable land. Are you planning to see The Nutcracker and the Four Realms? Buy your tickets today!

The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
“Set in the harsh Puritan community of seventeenth-century Boston, this tale of an adulterous entanglement that results in an illegitimate birth reveals Nathaniel Hawthorne's concerns with the tension between the public and the private selves. Publicly disgraced and ostracized, Hester Prynne draws on her inner strength and certainty of spirit to emerge as the first true heroine of American fiction. Arthur Dimmesdale, trapped by the rules of society, stands as a classic study of a self divided.”
Thanksgiving: The True Story by Penny Colman
“In her signature narrative nonfiction style, Penny Colman paints a fascinating picture of this cherished American holiday. She examines numerous Thanksgiving claims which were antecedents to the national holiday we celebrate today, raises the turkey question—does everyone eat turkey on Thanksgiving?—and shows Sarah Josepha Hale's instrumental role in establishing the holiday. Get ready to delve into the rich past of Thanksgiving in an enlightening history that uncovers the true story.”
