The Birthday Meme

I've been waiting until now to do this. It's like those "Birthday Newspapers" drugstores sell.

The Rules:
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)

The three events that happened on my birthday are:
1. 1492 - Christopher Columbus becomes the first European to set foot on the island of Hispaniola.
2. 1955 - Martin Luther King, Jr. leads the Montgomery Bus Boycott, 12/5/1955-12/21/1956.
3. 1992 - Kent Conrad of North Dakota resigns his seat in the United States Senate and is sworn into the other seat from North Dakota, becoming the only US Senator ever to have held two seats on the same day.

Two important birthdays:
1. 1901 - Walt Disney, American animated film producer (d. 1966)
2. 1968 - Margaret Cho, American comedian and actress

And one death:
1. 1791 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Austrian composer (b. 1756)

Holidays and observances
1. Thailand - The King's Birthday, National Day, Father's Day
2. Day of the Ninja
