The spikes in blockchain transactions on the Nov 16 2011 were due to an attempted micro-transaction spam attack against Litecoin network. Litecoin network fees were raised for transactions that transfer a lot of small amounts, making the attack too expensive and inefficient.

The 'saw' effect observable in the difficulty graph above is due to miners with a lot of hash power switching between litecoin and bitcoin.
