Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is the 21st of December which means that I am a whole year older today! I don't feel any different yet, it feels like any other day. My birthday is simply a stepping stone to Christmas which is only a few days away : ) No exciting plans, just having dinner with my family because most of my friends live hours away, if not a few states away.

I'm always curious to see what famous people share my birthday so I checked it out on IMDb. It turns out, I share my birthday with a rather strange group of people.

Jane Fonda
Phil Donahue
Frank Zappa
Samuel L. Jackson
Andy Dick
Kiefer Sutherland
Joseph Stalin (this one always makes me cringe...)

Luckily there were only a few famous people I recognized that died on my birthday.

F. Scott Fitzgerald
George S. Patton

And then I became curious about what important historical events happened on December 21 as well...

1620 - The Mayflower arrived at Plymouth Rock
1913 - The first crossword puzzle was published
1968 - Apollo 8 was launched, the first manned mission to the moon

The rest of the events were either boring or really depressing so I left those ones out : )

So there you have it, December 21st in a nutshell! Now can you guess how old I am?
