Turtle Parade tagged me with this Birthday Meme! Her rules: go to Wikipedia type in your birthday (only month and day). Then you list 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday, and then you tag 5 friends. I thought this was educational and fun (and could not adhere to all the rules). Do yours and post it in the comments!
