birthday history

This could be a fun way for your family to spend some time together and learn a little history at the same time. If you head over to Wikipedia and type in your birthday, you will get a list of all sorts of fun information. You can learn about events that have taken place on this date, you will find famous people with whom you share a birthday, as well as folks who have died on this date. You can learn about holidays and observances that occur on this date throughout the world. This is a fascinating little project that will entertain a wide range of ages.

Great idea. It should always generate interest. There is a small shop in the town near here which just added a small line of birthday cards which feature several memorable events from the year in which the person was born. I think they will do well.
