In the Julian and Gregorian calendars, November is the eleventh month of the year, the fourth and final of four months with a length of 30 days, and the fifth and final of five months with a length of less than 31 days. November was the ninth month of Romulus c.'s calendar.
Its name is derived from the Roman god Novus (new) who was associated with harvest and agriculture. The ancient Romans believed that during this month the gods turned their attention to mankind and created or made new things - such as babies - on account of which time is called "the month of babies".
It is followed by December, whose name is derived from the Latin word dies decemberis, meaning "day of December". This is because in ancient Rome each month had two names, one for itself and one for its ending date: e.g., Sextilis ("sixth month") and September ("third month").
The terms "November" and "december" were originally used in English-speaking countries to refer to the first and second months of the year respectively. That is no longer the case today since January 1st and February 14th are always in the same month but they were not always so. Before 1923, January 1st was the beginning of the New Year under the British Empire and other countries that adopted it.
In the Gregorian calendar, November (Nov.) is the eleventh and penultimate (second-to-last) month of the year, falling between October and December. It was the ninth month of the year prior to the addition of January and February to the Roman Calendar. The name "November" comes from the fact that it is before the winter solstice, when the days start getting longer, or from the fact that the ninth power of ten is 100, which is equal to one thousand, or from the fact that it is the ninth month, etc.
November has two or three important holidays: All Saints Day on November 1, which originates from the death and burial of Christ; Armistice Day on November 11, which marks the end of World War I; and Veterans Day on November 11, which is a national holiday in the United States to honor our veterans. It is celebrated on the 11th day of November because it is believed that at the time of the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, there were still some soldiers alive who had been present at both the First and Second Battles of Verdun, so they are said to have witnessed the end of war for humanity. However, there is no official declaration of peace throughout the world; instead, an international ceremony is held on the 11th every year to mark the end of military action.
Symbolism and Meaning of November This month marks the transition from the fall harvest season to the winter season. November gets its name from the Latin word novem, which means "nine," because it was the ninth month on the calendar before January and February were added. The ancients believed that bringing in the harvest made life possible again after the summer months when growing things were still alive.
The first week of November is All Saints Day, also known as All Hallows' Eve. People visit graves on this day to pray for dead relatives, and sometimes they leave food for ghosts. It is said that if you don't do this, the dead people will starve to death. —from Wikipedia
As far as holidays are concerned, All Saints Day is a religious one; however, there are some other options available too. If you live in the United States, then today is Veterans Day, a national holiday that honors all veterans of every country who have served in any war or conflict. In Canada, today is Remembrance Day, a national holiday that remembers those who have died in military actions against external forces and works to prevent future deaths at war. In England, France, and Australia, today is Armistice Day, a day of remembrance for those who have lost their lives in wars.

The year 2000 was a non-leap year but since 2000 is less than a century old it is considered a leap year.
