I’ve just borrowed this little exercise from Daisies Blog (I’m not even sure how I came across it) which I thought might be interesting.

1. Go to Wikipedia and type in your Birthday Month and day only.
2. List 3 Events that occurred that day.
3. List 2 important Birth days.
4. List 1 Death.
5. List a Holiday or Observance. (if any)

1305 – William Wallace, who led Scottish resistance to England, is captured by the English near Glasgow and transported to London for trial and execution.

1962 – Marilyn Monroe is found dead in her home.

1993 – Popular trading card game Magic: The Gathering is released. First collectible card game to date.


1862 – Joseph Merrick, The Elephant Man

1930 – Neil Armstrong, astronaut


2000 – Sir Alec Guinness, British actor

Holiday or Observance:

Croatia – Victory and Homeland Thanksgiving Day.

…and it was!
