The Nones of November

The Nones of each month is sacred to Juno, and her priests would sacrifice a pig or lamb to her to mark the date. Before the calendar reforms of Julius Caesar the Kalends was the 9th day before the full moon (IDES). The month's feriae were announced on the Nones, as, for the most part, no public festivals happened before the Nones.
