quite an important day

The rules:
1. Go to Wikipedia
2. In the search box, type your birth month and day but not the year.
3. List three events that happened on your birthday
4. List two important birthdays and one death
5. One holiday or observance (if any)


Three things that happened on my birthday:

1979 - Mother Teresa awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
1989 - Loma Prieta earthquake (7.1 on the Richter scale) hits the San Francisco
Bay Area and causes 57 deaths directly (and 6 indirectly).
2006 - The United States population reaches 300 million.

Two important birthdays and one death:

birth= 1912 - Pope John Paul I (d. 1978)
birth= 1972 - Eminem, American rapper (i could have chosen some guy from Nsync)
death= 1849 - Frédéric Chopin, Polish-French musician and composer (b. 1810)

Holiday or Observance:

International Day for the Eradication of Poverty
