    I think this is based on American Observances, but we can all play along. I thought this was really cute.

    On my birthday I can also celebrate National Gazpacho Day!!!

    Here's the link.

    Did a quick search and see the following...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_17


    Some interesting things happened on my birth date;

    International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia aka IDAHO

    1990 – The General Assembly of the World Health Organization (WHO) eliminates homosexuality from the list of psychiatric diseases.

    2004 – Massachusetts becomes the first U.S. state to legalize same-sex marriage.

    Try Wikipedia-ing your birthdate. Pretty cool icon_smile.gif!

    Syttende Mai (May 17) is the national day of Norway. Like July 4 in the USA, normally referred to only by the date.

    Whenever my birthday falls on the third Monday in April it's Patriots Day, a state holiday in Maine and Massachusetts. icon_smile.gif

    Being a 4/20 baby is cool all the time.

    Mine is not a national holiday, but it would have been had the Confederacy won the Civil War - Jefferson Davis' birthday.

    Income tax day.... 15 April.

    Not the greatest day to be born on.

    Not only is it American income tax day, but it is also the day that the 16th president of United States, Abraham Lincoln, died after being shot the night before, in 1865. Also, on the same date in 1912, the RMS Titanic sank, after striking an iceberg the night before...
