Birthday Meme

I was tagged by Skittles over at Skittles' Place to do this meme.

Here are the rules: You go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (month and day) Then you write down 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday, and tag 5 friends.

1620 - Plymouth Colony: William Bradford and the Mayflower Pilgrims land on what is now known as Plymouth Rock in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

1937 - The film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is premiered at the Carthay Circle Theater in Los Angeles.

1970 - Elvis Presley meets with President Richard Nixon to discuss the war on drugs.

1118 - Thomas Becket, Lord Chancellor of England and Archbishop of Canterbury (d. 1170)

1922 - Paul Winchell, American ventriloquist (d. 2005)


In the Northern Hemisphere, the winter solstice, sometimes known as Yule, occurs on or very close to this date. In the Northern Hemisphere, it marks the first official day of Winter. In the Southern Hemisphere, the summer solstice occurs around this time. It is also an important festival in the Chinese calendar.

I won't tag anyone to do this meme as I don't get around the blogging world much anymore. So, if anyone who reads my blog wishes to do it, be my guest.
