Tag. You're it.

Since I got tagged by CrankyCon, I am doing the following:

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).


44 BC - Julius Caesar, Dictator of the Roman Republic, is stabbed to death by Marcus Junius Brutus, Decimus Junius Brutus and several other Roman senators on the Ides of March.

1545 - First meeting of the Council of Trent.
