Ganked from tadiera Go to Wikipedia and look up your birthday (excluding the year). List three neat facts, two births and two deaths in your journal, including the year.

Events
1823 - The poem A Visit From St. Nicholas (AKA The Night Before Christmas) is published in the Sentinel.
1888 - Vincent Van Gogh cuts off the lower part of his left ear, takes it to a brothel, and gives it to a prostitute named Rachel.
1972 - Andes flight disaster: The remaining survivors of the Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 crash are rescued from the Andes after 73 days, during which time they have had to resort to cannibalism.
So Christmas festivity, insanity and whores, cannibalism. Actually, that's somewhat fitting for me.

Births
1933 - Akihito, Emperor of Japan
1971 - Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, British socialite
Haha, Tara Lara-Para-Whatserface. That's sort of depressing.

Deaths
1948 - Hideki Tojo, Prime Minister of Japan (hanged) (b. 1884)
1994 - Sebastian Shaw, English actor (b. 1905)
Deaths were not terribly interesting alas

I was however born on Festivus, does that count?
