My birthday was back in May, but I saw this meme on a friend’s livejournal tonight and figured I’d do it now instead of waiting until next May and forgetting all about it.
Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (month and day), then write down 3 events, 3 births, 3 deaths and 3 holidays.

I tried to pick things that related to either my background or heritage (since I’m all genealogy crazy right now), but the only thing that came close was the birthdays and even that was far from what I was going for. haha
1st birthday listed; I love peanut butter cups. Wish I had some right now. 2nd birthday listed; back in the early 90’s I loved me some Tommy Page. He goes hand in hand with New Kids on the Block for me. 3rd birthday listed; loved October Road and our mom’s went to high school together.
