    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.

    I was born on Thanksgiving. Every seven years, my birthday lands on it. Not to worry though, Pins and Needles Day is always on November 27th!

    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!

    Merry Christmas!

    I've always loved having my birthday on Christmas--I've always felt that the only Christmas or birthday present I need is the gift of being born on Christmas. To those who don't follow my thinking, my more mundane reason for liking a Christmas birthday is that not once in my life...
