This Day in History

Do you ever wonder what happened years ago on the day you were born? Well, I’ll have to admit it isn’t something I do everyday, but Everyday Healy has made me give this some thought. And now, even if you don’t know what happened on the date you were born, you know what happened on mine 🙂 Interesting tag, this…


1. Go to Wikipedia.
2. Type in your birthday and search your birthdate : Oct 21
3. From the results, list down 3 events, 2 births and 1 holiday.

3 Events
