Born On The 28th of February? And A List of Famous People Who Are

30 12 2005

So, were you born on this date? Do you know of anyone who was? With nothing better to do, I’d recently created a group where all members would have the same birthday.

Do all Feb 28-ers think alike? Who are they, how are they, where are they, and why are they? Is there a pattern? Is there really a connection between all who share the same Zodiac sign, being this precise?

I guess we’ll find out some day. But first, it’d be great to know where everyone is. How many of ‘us’ are out there, do you think? I gues I am interested in finding a pattern, if there is one.

Now, wouldn’t it be great if a whole lot of us who have the same birthday meet at one place for our birthday? Maybe we can do that and get in the Guiness Book of World Records.

One giant birthday card. One giant candle. One monstrous cake. A birthday party so big we’d have to rent a small town! Oh, the dreams we have.

So wanna know who else (famous, not so famous) shares our birthday?

Here is a random list
