We all know WHO was born on Christmas Day, don’t we?
But … you know that HE wasn’t born on December 25th, right?
While you’re thinking about that …
Here are some historical figures who really were born on 12/25:
Clara Barton, founder of The Red Cross (b. 1821)
Humphrey Bogart (1899)
Anwar Sadat (1918)
Rod Serling, “Twilight Zone” (1924)
Jimmy Buffett (1946)
Sissy Spacek (1949)
Annie Lennox (1954)
Chris Highland (1955)
Rickey Henderson, baseball star (1958)
Demaryius Thomas, football star (1987)
Justin Trudeau (1971)
And my personal favorite …
Neil deGrasse Tyson stirred things up a few years ago by posting this tweet at Christmas:
On this day long ago, a child was born who, by age 30, would transform the world. Happy Birthday Isaac Newton, born Dec 25, 1642
Whatever and Whomever you celebrate this season, remember: there are many special people who are gifts to the world born on our “holidays,” and throughout the year.
Glad you pointed out the truth about Dec. 25 and who wasn’t born that day. Just another myth of established religion that should be exposed
Yes, and a good reminder these “holydays” replaced older traditions like Solstice.
