The only calendar you need for your November 2021 content
November is as much a month for grown-ups as it is for children. Celebrating Candy Day, World Television Day, and Fountain Pen Day.

November is as much a festive month as October is, and not only due to Diwali and Children’s Day.

There’s plenty more happening in these 30 days, serving as worthwhile inspiration for your content.

This breezy month is also special to me, as it marks PiKu & ViRu’s release anniversary! (Buy/download, read, and review my book here; it’s FREE on Kindle Unlimited!)

So, whether you’re a brand or content creator, or a journalist looking to pitch topical stories, this is the November 2021 content calendar you need, with all major events, holidays, festivals, “food days,” and observances in one place. You seriously don’t need to seek these out elsewhere, though I’ve shared a list of resources at the bottom of the post in case you’re interested. Do share your experiences in the comments below about how useful (or not) this content calendar has been for you—feedback, suggestions, (constructive) criticism are most welcome.

For now, let’s dive into this big list of special occasions gracing this “nouveau” month.
