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 ?
Virgo – 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.
