Birthday Meme

Ok, Labrat, I’ll play! KL tagged me to provide three events, two births and one holiday associated with the date (not necessarily year) of my birth — October 4. This is easily accomplished by going to Wikipedia and entering the date in question.

1537 – The first complete English-language Bible (the Matthew Bible) is printed, with translations by William Tyndale and Miles Coverdalevery kewl, considering I’m Roman Catholic
1957 – Launch of Sputnik I, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth — my dad teases that I was almost named Sputnika because of this
1957 – The CBS television show Leave it to Beaver debuts, starring Jerry Mathers as Beaver — given my relatively dull but comfortingly stable suburbanite intact family background, this is appropriate

1880Damon Runyon, American writer (d. 1946) — I love his writing (also Anne Rice’s)
1946 – Susan Sarandon, American actress — she is a goddess of an actress and activist

(Interestingly, “writer” Jackie Collins is listed as being born in either 1937 or 1941.)

Sweden celebrates National Cinnamon bun Day (since 1999) — a holiday after my own heart….

OK, I’m tagging Twisted Knitster, LoriZ, and MamaOKnits. I hope you play — I’m very curious….
