    Flag Day

    I was born on Flag Day, it is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States. It's not the most celebrated or well known holiday, but it's significant, none the less. I will take it.

    All Holidays

    Actually, every person on my mother's side, (minus my mother,) was born on a holiday. Weird coincidence, right? I was born on the Fourth of July. My Nana was born on Easter. My aunt was born on Father's Day. My uncle was born on Halloween. My other Aunt was born on President's...

    July 1st

    I was born on July 1st which is Canada’s birthday. I think it’s a pretty cool birth date because there are always special events – parades fireworks and stuff. It is also a statutory holiday so I don’t have to work. Cheers!
