This web page is updated daily to provide an extensive list of noteworthy events for which today's date serves as a common anniversary.
If you should find yourself questioning the historical significance or the potential sustainability of some now-barely-viable link to relevance for any event(s) cited below, well, I hope you will still find something here of interest to you. (I mean, hey, I can understand how you might tend to doubt the validity of a list of so-called important events if, say, you don't find your own name listed below during that specific 24-hour period of time known as your birthday, fer Chrissake. And if that happens to be your particular point of contention at this exact moment, I'm sorry. So, uh... "Happy Birthday, Pilgrim! How does it feel to be [insert your age here]? Why, you don't look a day over [calculate and insert difference here: your age minus one]! Har, har, har! No, really, I sincerely mean that, [insert your first name or nickname here]. I, for one, am oh-so glad that you were born on [insert your date of birth here: Month, Day, and Year if you're American; or Day, Month, and Year if you're of almost any other nationality]. As our special Birthday [select one: Boy or Girl] today, you get: 1, 2, 3, 4... oh, and don't forget to add '1 to grow on'... That's [calculate and insert sum here: your age plus one] smacks on the fanny! Whew! So now, let the traditional Birthday spanking begin! Hotcha!")
(Be forewarned: Unless you are quite confident of your own historically-significant and widely-recognized contribution(s) to the betterment of the human condition or, say, you are convinced of your own infamous notoriety based on some past behavior so heinous and odious as to surely be notable on a national or even international level, please, don't humiliate yourself here by searching this list in some vainglorious hope of finding your name and the year of your birth or the date of your alleged accomplishment. It'll just depress you and, quite frankly, it'll embarrass the rest of us to have to witness such raw and pathetic desperation.)
And so now, Dear Pilgrim, FYI:

Hotcha! BD
