you have to log onto http://www.wikipedia.org/ and type in your birthdate [ without the year ]. Peruse the results and give us 2 birthdays, 3 events and one holiday.
didn't need to look up the birthdays. This part was easy.
South Africa - Reconciliation Day [ instituted after the end of Apartheid ]
1653 - English Interregnum - Oliver Cromewell becomes Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Ireland
1773 - Boston tea Party. Members of the Sons of Liberty disguised as Mohawks dump crates of tea into Boston harbor as a protest against the Tea Act.
and I'm throwing in a personal one - 1999 Marc, my husband of 25 years passed away after a long battle with cancer, aged 49. Needless to say birthdays are not exactly joyous any more. Sorry folks. If you were expecting feelgood this ain't it.
