Tag


Novel Nymph was tagged and tagged her own "readers" too. So, if you're not very inspired to write anything too original, you're tagged as well. That's how I'm feeling at the moment.

So what we have to do is go to Wikipedia and search for our birthday and month (not year) and then choose:

a) 3 events that happened that same day throughout history;

b) 2 significant birthdays;

c) 1 significant death;

d) 1 significant holiday or observances (if any);

e) then tag 5 bloggers.


Ok! December 14th
Events in the past:
- 1542 - Princess Mary Stuart becomes Queen Mary I of Scotland. (she is always presented in such a scary way by every film...)
- 1900 - Quantum Mechanics: Max Planck presents a theoretical derivation of his black-body radiation law. (Planck was the man!)

Birthdays (two is too little!):
- 1503 - Nostradamus, French astrologer (d. 1566)
- 1883 - Jane Cowl, American actress and playwright (d. 1950) (wow, she was born 100 years before me and has a name similar to mine...the dates actually differ in wikipedia, so I decided to keep the 1883)
- 1946 - Jane Birkin, British-born actress
Interesting - there is no one born in 1983 in the list - obviously they're waiting for me to become famous so they can add me! ;)

Death:
1591 - Saint John of the Cross, Spanish friar and poet (b. 1542) - this explains why this is the day of St. John of the Cross in the calendar!

Holiday:
R.C. Saints - Memorial of Saint John of the Cross - like I said...
