Birthday Meme

My first Tag! :) Thanks, Serena!

Here's how it works:
Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (month and day). Then choose 3 Events, 2 Births, 1 Holiday, and tag 5 friends. There are 5 blog slots in the meme list. If you are tagged, you remove the name in the first slot and bump everyone up so that your blog name can be added to the bottom. Participation is optional!

The list:
Earnest Parenting
The PandaBeanery
MrsLaurenChristine

3 events:

1775 - American Revolutionary War: Patriot revolutionary forces under Col. Ethan Allen attack Montreal defended by British General Guy Carleton. Allen and his troops were disorganised and soundly defeated; however, U.S. Brigadier General Richard Montgomery's force entered Montreal unopposed.

1942 - World War II: Naval Battle of Guadalcanal - U.S. and Japanese ships engage in an intense, close-quarters surface naval engagement during the Battle of Guadalcanal

1990 - The World Wide Web first began. (Wow!)

2 Births:
354 - Saint Augustine of Hippo, North African theologian

1955 - Whoopi Goldberg, American actress, comedian, and singer

1 Holiday:

R.C. Saints - Mother Cabrini

Hmmm. I never knew so much about November 13! :)

If anyone would like to participate, please do! I don't know who reads regularly that hasn't already been tagged!

Lovely! I cracked up at your "pattern paper cuts" comment...thanks for the laugh!

I wonder if it would be possible for us to get to know one another "off line" (as my sister says)? I've always been an admirer of nice snail mail letters, or if e-mail works better for you that would also be lovely! My e-mail is vettedirl@yahoo.com if you would like to talk!
Blessings,
Mackenzie
