When I think of November, immediately my memory goes back to my school days. Our School English Teacher Susan Mathew taught us a one-line poem to remember the days in 12 months. 
It goes like this: 
“30 Days are September April June And November” 
That was really very easy to remember the days in 12 months.  :-)
