This Is Why November Is Far & Away The Worst Month In Canada

All in favour of scrapping November and staying in bed, say aye. 🥶

It's only when your Halloween hangover (sugar and alcohol) finally leaves you do you realize the true horror has begun — November is here.

Everyone has a favourite and least-favourite time of year, but I think it's hard to argue that November is by far the most unpleasant month out of any in Canada. The fun memories of summer have definitely faded, and we're still a cold, damp month away from any holiday fun.
