Hi Barbara, Interesting facts about November... I didn't know all of them...

I will tell you that my older brother used to talk about them getting one of the first Monopoly games in our small town --when it came out in 1935... People from all over town would go to our home to check out that NEW game.... (Before I was born ---in 1942).
