I needed a little break so I snagged a meme from Noricum.
The rules: Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday month and day only. Then post 3 events, 2 births and one holiday that occurred on your birthday, then tag 5 friends.
Birthday: November 11
Events: Good night! There’s a bazillion events on my birthday! I’m skipping the obvious 1918 one in lieu of other, lesser known ones or just interesting ones.
1. 308 – The Congress of Carnuntum: Attempting to keep peace within the Roman Empire, the leaders of the Tetrarchy declare Maxentius and Licinius to be Augusti, while rival contender Constantine I is declared Caesar of Britain and Gaul
3. 1911 – Many cities in the U.S. midwest broke their record highs and lows on the same day as a strong cold front rolls through. (see The 11/11/11 cold wave).
1. 1974 – Leonardo DiCaprio
2. Henry IV – Holy Roman Emporer (In the mood to read Shakespeare’s play about him again….)
Arimistice Day/Remembrance Day/Veterans Day
Being that I stole this meme from Noricum, if you’re interested, snag it in lieu of my actually tagging people.
