November is the eleventh month of the year in the Julian calendar and the ninth month of the ancient Roman calendar. November retained its name (from the Latin Novem meaning nine) after January and February were inserted into the calendar created by the Romans.

In the neopagan Wheel of the Year, November begins after the festival of Samhain in the Northern Hemisphere and Beltane in the Southern Hemisphere.
