    I'm born on leap year!

    Normally, I celebrate 28th and 1st, but
    this year, I'm going all out!

    3 day holiday.

    I apologize in advance for any trashy posts, spelling errors, or stooooooopidity during this time period. It's kind of like the OLYMPICS, just having a birthday.

    Worked so far, why stop now!

    ps where's Funkstoner when you need him ??

    I was born on the cusp of Father's day and my dad's birthday.
  4. Ummm...
    I was born on the same date that Beethoven died.
    Is that a holiday?

    My cousin, he's in the Navy, was born on Christmas, and his sister, my little cousin, is a leap year baby. One or the other is odd enough, but both siblings? Odd, huh?
  6. I was born on my birthday. Must be some kinda holiday 'cause people close to me celebrate it every year.
  7. Born march 21st. I believe that is the first day of spring and/or the spring equinox.

    My Birthday's a holiday in Brazil (Tiradentes), so everyone was happy when it came around but not so glad if it fell on a weekend.

    In the US, it's in the middle of Spring break, so people are still stoked.
  14. Well if 19 January is a holiday, I was born on one! I have 4 family members including myself, yet mine and my Dad's birthdays are 5 days apart in January, while my brother and mum's birthdays are 10 days apart in May. So May is an expensive month for me.:p

    Well - to us in the UK - "Holidays" is when most people go off to Spain for Sun, Sea, Sand and Sex!! So I would imagine that a lot of births are as a result of "Holiday Romances"!! ;)
  16. Good to meet a fellow Halloween'er like myself. So err, same here. 10/31/86 10:something AM

    Halloween is the very opposite of a Holiday or "Holy Day" as it means literally!!

    It is a pagan festival when the spirits of the dead walk about on this earth!! :eek:

    It is the most un-Holy day in the calendar!! ;)
  18. Really if you must know, I consider my birthday to be a holiday cuz im so damned cool :p;) :D

    Actually, "Halloween" refers to "All Hallowed Eve"
    the Day before "All Saints Day" which is a Holy Day of Obligation.

    Nah that's rubbish - it was a pagan festival hundreds of years before the Christian church decided that it was too popular and thought they ought to do something about it, by making up a bogus one of their own!! ;)
