Tagged!

The very clever and beautious Bug over on An Indian Summer tagged me for this meme, and it’s actually a really interesting one. I’ve seen it a few times as I scanned through blogs and some are pretty darn funny.

Instructions:
1. Go to Wikipedia.
2. In the Search box, type your birth month and day (but not year).
3. List three events that happened on your birthday.
4. List two important birthdays and one interesting death.
5. One holiday or observance (if any).
