The Birthday Event Meme

...
I am very late in getting this one done! August was a hectic month, but hopefully I'll be back on track in September.

This meme instructions:

"Go type in your birthday in Wikipedia (month and day). Write down 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday and tag 5 friends."

My birthday is 7 August.

One Holiday


"Emancipation Day"
Turks and Caicos Islands









Two Birthdays



- David Duchovny of the "X Files"
- Mata Hari - World War II spy










Three Events

- 1840 The British Parliament passes an Act prohibiting the use of 'climbing boys' as chimney sweeps.
- 1925 Britain introduces Daylight Saving
- 1926 The first British motor racing Grand Prix is staged at Brooklands

I'm not going to tag anyone. If you haven't been tagged and like this idea - please feel free to take up the birthday challenge!
