November Birthdays and Anniversaries
How did early mothers handle washing and drying clothes, especially the continuous collection of dirty diapers, during the months when laundry could not be hung outside to dry quickly? And were the babies sicker in November because of cold weather? How I wish a grandmother had kept a journal that had passed down to me!
Among my direct and collateral ancestors there are fewer births and marriages in November than in any other month of the year. A quiet month in that regard, too.
