Memes to go

Here's sort of a cool Meme I stole from Beck and Katrina's.

1. Go to Wikipedia and type in your Birthday Month and day only.
-which would be December 30.

2. List 3 Events that occurred that day.

-1922 - The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics is formed
-1953 - Television Technology: The first ever NTSC color television sets go on sale for about USD at $1,175 each from RCA.
-1972 - Vietnam War: The US halts heavy bombing of North Vietnam

3. List 2 important Birth days

-39 - Roman Emperor Titus (d. 81)
-1878 - William Aberhart, (Christian) Canadian politician (d. 1943)
-1942 Michael Nesmith, American singer and musician (The Monkees) & 1945 - Davy Jones, English singer (The Monkees) Can you believe I share the same birthday as not one but two Monkee's.

4. List 1 Death.

- 1460 - Richard, Duke of York, claimant to the English throne (killed in battle)

5. List a Holiday or Observance. (if any):

-The fifth day of Christmas in Western Christianity.

Beck said...

December 30th! My son's birthday is still overhadowed by Christmas almost a month later - do you feel like your birthday is still treated as a special day so close to Christmas?

Susanne said...

Beck: My family is wonderful and my birthday has always been separate from Christmas. And with my youngest having a Christmas day birthday, it's a triple whammy for us. But we've always done birthday things for her too, separate from the Christmas celebrations.

Fun, Susanne! Two!
(Hubby and I saw them live when we lived in was SO cool!)

(((HUGS))) for your sweet comments today! :D I still love ya' even though you're one of the AI masses!

Strangely enough... yes, I do believe you would share birthdays with Monkees...

I bet your wallets are pretty thin around the end of December with Christmas, your youngest's birthday and your birthday all within 5 days of each other...

Linda said...

I know i've got a significant event with my birthday ... I think it's Sputnik? ha ha. I'm so jealous of the Monkee birthday!

Linda said...

This looks like a fun one to do. You just never know who or what shares your special day!!

GiBee said...

...which reminds me ... I was tagged for this, too...

Cool meme!
