Here’s what you do:
1. Go to Wikipedia.
2. In the Search box, type your birth month and day (but not year).
3. List three events that happened on your birthday.
4. List two important birthdays and one interesting death.
5. One holiday or observance (if any).
6. Tag 5 more of your peeps – if you feel like it. Or, do what I do and just tell everyone to do it.
