Marisa tagged me to do this. I'll bite.

Rules: You go to Wikipedia, type in your birthday (month and day) & you list 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday, and tag 5 friends.

Here goes...
June 14 - Flag Day!

1. Three Events:
1777 - Stars and Stripes adopted by Congress as the Flag of the United States.

1907 - Norway adopts female suffrage. (Rock on, Norway!)

1942 - Anne Frank begins to keep a diary.

2. Two Births:
1811 - Harriet Beecher Stowe, American author (Uncle Tom's Cabin)

1909 - Burl Ives, American folksinger and musician (and the snowman in "Rudolph"!)

(also Boy George, Che Guevara and Donald Trump, to name a few of the more bizarre ones!)

3. One Holiday:
Well, we all know it's Flag Day. But it's also International Weblogger's Day. Cool!

4. Five Tagged People:
Kate, Angela, Cinderdiva, Jenn and Jenny. (but we'll see who actually does it...)
