5 Unique Days to Celebrate in November
November 13th – World Kindness Day
With the seasonal spirit and joy in the air, the holiday season is always a great time to show some extra kindness to strangers.

Kindness isn’t just about doing nice things for other people but can be about spending fun, quality time with friends too. Treat your friends to good food and drink at a cozy lounge such as Monarch, or make some new memories together while watching the sunset from Hudson Terrace.
The possibilities are limitless! Kick off the kindness of the holiday season by celebrating World Kindness Day on November 13th.

Although paper greeting cards aren’t as common anymore, electronic greeting cards are as popular as ever. There’s nothing quite like getting an unexpected hello from a friend.
Maybe you know someone who’s needing some encouragement, is going through a big life change or is about to embark on a new career path. Maybe you just want to send along an electronic greeting card for the fun of it! November 17th is your chance to send your friends a hello for no reason at all except to say hello in a unique way.
