Birthday meme

As I’m a blogger called Andrew it looks like I’m allowed to play:

The instructions:

1) Go to Wikipedia
2) In the search box, type your birth month and day but not the year.
3) List three events that happened on your birthday
4) List two important birthdays and one death
5) One holiday or observance (if any)

Three Events:

Birthdays and Death

Holiday

I shan’t tag, but if you fancy it have a go.

    Don’t think I will:
    1789 – The United States War Department is established.
    1888 – Jack the Ripper commits the first of his murders around London’s East End.
    1933 – The Iraqi Government slaughtered over 3,000 Assyrians Christian in the village of Sumail.
    1945 – President Harry Truman announces the bombing of Hiroshima with an atomic bomb
    1964 – Vietnam War: The U.S. Congress passes the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution giving US President Lyndon B. Johnson broad war powers to deal with North Vietnamese attacks on American forces.

    How depressing! But fortunately I had a good effect on the world because since 1969:

    1991 – World Wide Web debuts as a publicly available service on the internet.
    And no more wars started, hooray!

    I’m a blogger called Andrew, too, even if I’ve been a tad irregular of late and don’t blog in anything as mundane as English ;o). Here goes, then:

    622 – Muhammad completes his hegira from Mecca to Medina.
    1852 – The first airship is displayed.

    Third one the highlight, though:

    1991 – Nirvana’s Nevermind album released.

    Two births:

    1946 – Lars Emil Johansen, Prime Minister of Greenland
    1951 – Pedro Almodóvar, Spanish movie director

    One death:

    768 – Pippin the Short, King of the Franks (b. 714)

    Holiday:

    In ancient Latvia, the third day of Mikeli, and the only day of the year during which men proposed to their prospective wives.
