WHENโ€™S YOUR BIRTHDAY (MONTH + DAY)?

My birthday is on the 21st of May, a.k.a. today!

WHATโ€™S YOUR ZODIAC SIGN?

This is a bit complicated. I kinda have two zodiac signs. On the day I was born it switched between Taurus and Gemini. I consider myself both!

WHATโ€™S YOUR BIRTHSTONE?

I didn’t know this, but apparently my birth stone is an emerald. I do like it ๐Ÿ™‚

DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WITH THE SAME BIRTHDAY?

One of my previous friends has the same birthday. As for famous people, Gotye ( the Belgian-Australian singer), The Notorious B. I. G. (American rapper) and a ton of other people I have never heard of.

WHAT HISTORICAL EVENT OCCURRED ON YOUR BIRTHDAY?

  • On the 21st of may 1851 slavery was abolished in Colombia.
  • On the same day in 1881 the American Red Cross is established by Clara Barton in Washington D.C.
  • On the same day the great Atlanta fire of 1917 happened.
  • On the 21st of May 1932 bad weather forced Amelia Earhart to land in a pasture in Derry, Northern Ireland, and she thereby became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
  • In 1966 The Ulster Volunteer Force declared war on the Irish Republican Army in Northern Ireland.
  •  In 1972 Michelangelo’s Pietร  in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome was damaged by a vandal, the mentally disturbed Hungarian geologist Laszlo Toth.
  • On the 21st of May 1980 Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back was released in theaters.
  • In 1991 the Ethiopian Civil War ended on this day.
  • In 2002 I was born ๐Ÿ˜‰

I found these events the most interesting, but a ton more happened. The list is just way to long to include everything.

linda-belcher-cakeWHAT DO YOU USUALLY DO TO CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY?

I have two birthday parties, one with my friends and one with my family. The one with my family involves a lot of cake.

WERE YOU BORN IN THE MORNING, AFTERNOON, OR THE NIGHT?

I was born at noon, another reason the whole zodiac sign situation is even more complicated.

IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY PRESENT IN THE WORLD, WHAT PRESENT WOULD IT BE?

I would love to get an unlimited amount of money to spend on books! It would be amazing to go to a bookstore and pick up EVERY book I want to read!

WHATโ€™S YOUR EARLIEST BIRTHDAY MEMORY?

When I was younger I used to collect Playmobilยฎ! I loved to play with it. I remember waking up on my birthday and my close family coming into my room singing Happy Birthday. They had a big box of Playmobilยฎ with them and I loved it! I remember setting it up and building a new addition to my house right away.

HOW DID YOU GET YOUR NAME?

If my older brother had been a girl my parents would have named him Emma, but he isn’t so his name is Michiel (Michael in English). When I was born however my parents thought there were already too many Emma’s, so they called me Eva.

HAVE YOU EVER FORGOTTEN YOUR BIRTHDAY?

Nope. I never have and I don’t think I ever will.
