Birthday tag


I saw this tag on the Dutch blog Kwante in Wonderland a few months ago and I thought it would be nice to do this one too.

So it’s my birthday today and that’s why I’m doing this birthday tag. Naha I’m not telling you how old I really am but I will tell you that just last week someone told me that they thought I was 29. I’m being very serious and I’m not lying. It made my day so that’s saying enough :-). In my mind I quite like being 29 forever :-).

Anyway, September 19 is the 262nd day of the year (263rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 103 days remaining until the end of the year. This date is slightly more likely to fall on a Monday, Wednesday or Saturday (58 in 400 years each) than on Thursday or Friday (57), and slightly less likely to occur on a Tuesday or Sunday (56).

Anyway here are the questions:

Can you name celebrities who celebrate their birthday on the same day?

Jimmy Fallon (TV show host) turns 41. There are some other people but nobody I know… Renee Paquette, Lydia Hearst and Mandy Musgrave if you know who they are. Ronaldo is 18th of September and Stephen King 21th September by the way so I guess 19th is not so great a day if you want to become someone important in this life.

Is your birthday a (national) holiday?

Nope, just a regular day here. I like it like that because it remains my own special day. Wikipedia lists 19 September as a special day in Chile and also as the International Talk Like A Pirate Day. Arrr. Well I guess there could be worse ;-).

Somewhat less fun, who died on your birthday?

According to Wikipedia, lots of people were born and have died on my birthday but the one name I recognize best is  Jackie Collins (English novelist) who died in 2015.

What’s your star sign ?

imagesVirgo – Libra Cusp. If you were born between the 14th and the 21st of September, you fall in that area of the zodiac that is jointly governed by two star signs – Virgo and Libra.

Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac.


What’s your Chinese sign?

In Chinese astrology I was born under fire and snake. Maybe I should pursue a career as a magician in the future ;-)?


In Chinese culture, the Snake is the most enigmatic animal among the twelve zodiac animals. People born in a year of the Snake are supposed to be the most intuitive.

Snakes tend to act according to their own judgments, even while remaining the most private and reticent. They are determined to accomplish their goals and hate to fail.

Snakes represent the symbol of wisdom. They are intelligent and wise. They are good at communication but say little. Snakes are usually regarded as great thinkers.

Snakes are materialistic and love keeping up with the Joneses. They love to posses the best of everything, but they have no patience for shopping.

Snake people prefer to work alone, therefore they are easily stressed. If they seem unusually stressed, it is best to allow them their own space and time to return to normal.

On which weekday were you born?

It was the third Monday of the month, just like this year !

What song was on number 1 in the charts when you were born?

Sorry I’m a lady by Baccara

How was the weather when you were born? 

It was a sunny day but not too warm (15°C) with more than 8 hours of sunshine. It was cloudy with some wind.

Anything important ever happen on your birthday?

1952 – The United States bars Charlie Chaplin from re-entering the country after a trip to England.

1959 – Nikita Khrushchev is barred from visiting Disneyland due to security concerns.

1982 – Scott Fahlman posts the first documented emoticons 🙂

1983 – Saint Kitts and Nevis gains its independence.

1985 – A strong earthquake kills thousands and destroys about 400 buildings in Mexico City.

1991 – Ötzi the Iceman is discovered by German tourists.

So that’s it. It was fun to look up some of the facts (thank you Wikipedia, what would we do without you). If it’s  your birthday soon, I invite you to do this one too, I’ll be sure to check your number one song on your birthday as well.

  1. Happy Birthday!!! 😀 We’re only one day apart!
    I love this tag! 🙂 I barely know anything about my day, that feels weird! Now I know Ronaldo was born on my day, thank you! Virgos are great, haha. And the sign intro is so true!
    I wish you a brilliant day and lots of love and maybe a waffle? 🙂

  2. Happy birthday, Inge! 🙂 🙂 ❤ I really enjoyed reading this tag and finding out more 🙂 Hopeyou have a lovely day and plenty presies and love! 🙂

    It's strange, I find being 29 such a twilight zone what with 30 just around the corner. 30 seems like such an impending doom with some things- now or never kind of age 😀 But I'll be sure to do this tag in a few months when my birthday hits!


  3. Happy Birthday!!! I’m 6 years younger then you (if I’m correct 😉 ) and a very cute but very young boy (22) made some moves when I went clubbing with some friends. I told him I was way too old and already married and he replied…. I like older girls but your what? 26 maybe 27?

    I told him if I wasn’t already married I surely considered dating him!!! Hahahaha always like it when they think I’m younger since in my mind I’m still 23…..


  4. Happy birthday Inge!! :-* What a great tag! It’s like a lot of cool people have their birthday in roughly the same week ;). Jimmy Fallon’s a cool guy as well. I’m definitely going to do this one 5 days from now! Oh, and Baccara :’). That’s my #1 association with porn music…


  5. Happy Birthday Inge!!! ❤ I feel so jealous that all of the cool kids share the same birthday month.. mine is not until June. Do not discredit sharing your special day with International Talk Like A Pirate Day! That is a seriously big deal. Happiest of days and many hugs! Love the tag.


  6. Happy happy birthday, Inge! 🙂 This is a nice post and maybe I’ll borrow it for my birthday next week! Haha. Hope you had a great day! 🙂


  7. Happy Belated Birthday!! 😀
    That was my grandma’s birthday as well. So y’all are both virgos. She’s a fiesty virgo though.
    That’s pretty cool it falls on Talk Like a Pirate Day. Pretty funny too. You could go around talking like a pirate all day.
