Wikipedia

I got this from

  • Confessions from a Private Lesbian
  • What your supposed to do is go to Wikipedia and look up your birthday (by putting your birth month and day in the Search box), then list the events and other things of note, specifically…

    List three events that happened on your birthday.
    List two important birthdays and one interesting death.
    One holiday or observance (if any).
