It’s not my birthday, but Mike tagged me with a date oriented meme that is based on different events that happened on your birthday. The rules are simple:
- Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (month and day).
- Write down three events, 2 births, 1 holiday and tag 5 friends.
- There are five slots in the Birthday Meme. As you are tagged, you have to remove the name in the first slot and bump everyone up so that your name can be added to the bottom.
Here are some random things related to my birthday. I am a Taurus born on April 28th.
Three events which occurred on this day
- 1952 – Occupied Japan: The United States occupation of Japan ends.
- 1994 – Former Central Intelligence Agency official Aldrich Ames pleads guilty to giving U.S. secrets to the Soviet Union and later Russia.
- 2003 – Apple Computer’s iTunes Music Store launches, selling 1 million songs in its first week.
Two people who share the same birthday as I
- 1442 – King Edward IV of England

One holiday celebrated on this day
- Workers’ Memorial Day – Workers’ Memorial Day or International Workers’ Memorial Day takes place annually around the world on April 28, an international day of remembrance and action for workers killed, disabled, injured or made unwell by their work. In a world, where on occasions death, injury and illness at work are hidden away and taken for granted, Workers’ Memorial Day is an opportunity to highlight the preventable nature of most workplace accidents and ill health and to promote campaigns and union organization in the fight for improvements in workplace safety. The slogan for the day is Remember the dead – Fight for the living.
I am tagging the following bloggers to participate in this meme.
