How Famous Is Your Birthday

By Tiara

April 9 is the birthday of one of the most famous people in history- Abraham Lincoln! He was not only our nation’s president, but he also made significant contributions to politics, literature, and even music.

Many things are said about President Lincoln, including his profound influence as an orator and leader. Some say that his speeches directly inspired other leaders to put into practice what he preached. Others describe him as having saved America by leading it through a time of great crisis and division.

But what many don’t know is that before he became president, he wrote several pieces of work which have gone on to become classics in their own right. They include stories told from both first person and third person points of view, as well as novels, plays, and songs.

His short story “The Lifeboat” has been adapted for film twice, with William Powell playing the role of Captain Maynard and Spencer Tracy portraying Benjamin Hardy. This version was released in 1940 and won two Oscars, including Best Adapted Screenplay.

Another of his writings, The Gettysburg Address, still stands out today as one of the greatest examples of presidential rhetoric ever given. It was just over three minutes long, making it the shortest speech at the conclusion of a major event (the longest being around eight minutes).

However, this doesn’t make it any less powerful.

Not very famous

Many people know when your birthday is, but few recognize you or your name while celebrating it.

Many people know that you were born on March 20, but they don’t know who you are unless they’ve read a book written by your parents with their first names or seen an interview where you mentioned something about yourself.

Some may have heard of some product or service you own, but aside from that, there's not much information out there.

With all this focus on the “me” factor, most people think that if there’s no picture or description of you, then you don't exist. And since we're talking about fame here, many assume you must not like being known either.

In fact, although most people consider themselves more well-known than they really are, fewer than 5% can actually be considered truly famous.

Somewhat famous

March 20 is considered to be your ‘somewhat famous’ birthday. You have enough material to make a few appearances this year!

A little known fact about this day is that it was once celebrated as an international holiday. In some countries, it still is! However, due to its popularity in America, it has been declared a federal government non-holiday here. Now you know why there are so many Federal Employees around the country celebrating their half-day weekend today!

Many people associate International Chocolate Day with Valentine’s Day, but it actually comes from something much more interesting. According to legend, Queen Victoria decided to hold an all-chocolate party for her 50th birthday in 1850. Since then, we celebrate this day every February when chocolate abounds and everyone enjoys it!

There are many ways to figure out how popular an anniversary is, but one of the most common methods comes from looking at the books about them!

By looking up your own or someone else’s birthday online, you can also see if there are any articles or stories written about it. If so, you can read those to get more information!

From here, you can decide whether this anniversary is very significant, important, not too special, or even if it’s irrelevant. You can use these insights to help you come to a decision.

Not very famous anymore

This week’s birthday is considered to be “less than one day old,” according to The Guinness Book of World Records. On February 21st, 2000, a time when life was much simpler, President George W. Bush turned 37 years old. He celebrated with just 24 guests at his home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

Many people may not know this, but before he became president, Bush had already achieved minor celebrity status. In fact, his birth date has been featured as an All-Time Favorite on Myspace, one of the most popular social networking sites.

A few days after turning 37, Bush addressed the media about his job prospects. At that time, many thought he would run for Congress or state office. But instead, he announced his campaign for the presidency.

On this day at age x, you have done something that made someone else recognize your name. They called you or wrote about you in the media, which is the way most people know you.

This person may have written about you with no picture next to your name. They might have known only some parts of you, or none at all.

But they still knew enough to call you by your first name or nickname, and to include either your first or last name in their writing. That’s how much importance you hold for them.

You are very well-known.

This week’s question is how famous is your birthday? Does anyone know it outside of your family, or is it a secret known only to you?

I’m going to assume that most people reading this have at least some knowledge of their birth date. So, I’ll be using that as our basis for comparison.

If there were no other significant events in your life, then clearly your birth year would make a good pseudonym. (Think George Washington, John Doe, etc.) Obviously, we can’t do that here because there ARE important milestones in your life — like when you were born!

With that said, let’s compare your birth date with those of some well-known individuals.
