(Lifted from Carol at She Lives)

The rules are:

1) Go to Wikipedia
2) In the search box, type your birth month and day but not the year.
3) List three events that happened on your birthday
4) List two important birthdays and one death
5) One holiday or observance (if any)


  • 1459Battle of Blore Heath, the first major battle of the English Wars of the Roses, is fought at Blore Heath in Staffordshire.
  • 1806Lewis and Clark return to St. Louis, after exploring the Pacific Northwest of the United States.
  • 1848 – First commercial production of chewing gum by John Curtis on a stove at his home in Bangor, Maine in the United States and marketed as ‘The State of Maine Pure Spruce Gum‘.



Holidays and Observances

  • Astrology: Usually the first day of sun sign Libra in the tropical zodiac.





  1. Hey Gloriana, it’s not everyone can say that their birthday is commemorated by the invention of chewing gum and the birth of Kublai Khan. Obviously that must mean that you’re a very special person.

  2. This was fun! I knew a few of mine, but I didn’t realize there was so MUCH! 🙂
