Go to Wikipedia and look up your birth day (excluding the year). List three neat facts, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.

Events
454 - Roman Emperor Valentinian III assassinates Aëtius in his own throne room. (I was sooo tempted to put Aëtius in as the 'death')

1937 - J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit is published.

1897 - The "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus" letter is published in the New York Sun.

Births

1866 - H. G. Wells, English writer (d. 1946)

1874 - Gustav Holst, English composer (d. 1934)

(I had trouble choosing - Richard Plantagenet & Chuck Jones are also there)

Death

1327 - King Edward II of England (b. 1284)
