birthday meme

My birthday is MONTHS away, but I saw this meme chez Seeking Something and thought I'd play along. It's been a while since I did a meme other than the Friday Five.

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:

July 27, 1549 - Jesuit priest Francis Xavier's ship reached Japan
July 27, 1921 - Researchers at the University of Toronto led by biochemist Frederick Banting announce the discovery of the hormone insuline.
July 27, 1963 - Korean War Ends

4. List two important birthdays and one death

born July 27, 1967 - Juliana Hatfield, American Musician

born July 27, 1974 - Pete Yorn, American Musician
died July 27, 1946 - Gertrude Stein, American writer

5. One holiday or observance (if any)

Feast of the Seven Sleepers (depicted in the picture)
