Wow a lot has gone down on my b-day. There is more than 50 historical events and too many to list of famous b-days . Although probably the most famous is Oscar Wilde.

And Walt Disney was founded on my b-day. 1384  Jadwiga is crowned King of Poland, although she is a woman. I liked that one. lol

Full list is Here for anyone interested in seeing the full list.

My mother is very fond of telling everyone I was born the same day as the Lockerbie bombing. Every year when she posts about my birthday she always mentions about the plane. Its kind of sad, because I share my name with a little girl from Lockerbie who died that day. :(

 

Coincidentally I share a birthday with my husbands brother-in-law, who is married to the sister who also shares my name.

Dec 22

 

I think I'll feature this here as most of the rest in the list is not really something I think should be celebrated:

- 1989 – Berlin's Brandenburg Gate re-opens after nearly 30 years, effectively ending the division of East and West Germany.

On June 21, 1893, the world's first Ferris wheel was unveiled at Chicago's Columbian Exposition. 1904, Theodore Roosevelt was nominated for the Presidency (he's one of my favorite Presidents :D). Always interested in WWII I am, 1944, heavy bombing of Berlin; 1945, Japan's defeat at Okinawa. And finally, as an animation student: 1988, the movie "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" premiered for the first time in New York.

Hmm. Not many happy things, apparently, and only little that I can understand due to my limited interest in history and especially war history.

 

Some Medicis were born in the 15th century. In 1783, Mount Asama erupted in Japan, and in 1875, H. C. Andersed died. Anne Frank and her family was arrested in 1944, and that century also includes a number of other miserable events like earthquakes, bombings and massacres on my birthday.

 

Although this must also be, at least partly, because sad happenings end up in the news so much more ofter than the fortunate ones.

Some interesting things that happened on the 19th of April:

  • Christina, Queen of Sweden and lesbian icon, died in 1689. She shares her death date with Lord Byron (d. 1824) and Charles Darwin (d. 1882). A lot more interesting deaths than births, it seems.
  • The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising began in 1943...
  • ...the very same day that LSD was taken deliberately for the first time (three days after the scientist Albert Hoffman had discovered its effects by accident).
  • The first space station, Salyut 1, was launched in 1971.
