kitty: The Birthday Meme

Mia sent me a link to: From Sheep to Shawls and Socks blog and she had this wonderful meme posted.

The rules are very simple, go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (mm/dd) only. Then post 3 events, 2 births, and one holiday that occurred on your birthday. Than tag 5 friends.

So here is my list, it was quiet a musical day.


  1. 1429 - Joan of Arc ends the Siege of Orléans, pulling an arrow from her own shoulder and returning wounded to lead the final charge. The victory marks a turning point in the Hundred Years' War.
  2. 1824 - World premiere of Ludwig van Beethoven's Ninth Symphony in Vienna, Austria. Work was conducted by Michael Umlauf, under the deaf composer's supervision.
  3. 1946 - Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering (later renamed Sony) is founded with about 20 employees.
  4. 1992 - Space Shuttle Endeavour is launched on its maiden voyage (STS-49).


  1. 1812 - Robert Browning, English poet (d. 1889)
  2. 1833 - Johannes Brahms, German composer (d. 1897)
  3. 1840 - Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Russian composer (d. 1893)


  1. 1667 - Johann Jakob Froberger, German composer (b. 1616)
  2. 1793 - Pietro Nardini, Italian composer (b. 1722)
  3. 1800 - Niccola Piccinni, Italian composer (b. 1728)
  4. 1825 - Antonio Salieri, Italian composer (b. 1750)


  1. Russia - Radio Day (commemorating the work of Alexander Popov)
  2. Bulgaria - Radio and Television Day
I always feel guilty about tagging people, so if you would like to do it consider yourself tagged. Though Mia (cough, cough, cough Consider yourself tagged) thanks for sending the link. This one is a lot of fun.
