On this day in history...

I was born! Ahahaha. Giddy Tiger *claims* she wants to know what happened in the world on the date that I was born, but I *know* that she's really after my birthdate. Right? Wakakaka. Anyway, here's what to do with this tag...

1. Go to Wikipedia
2. Type in your birthday and search your birthdate: Jan 28
3. From the results, list down 3 events, 2 births and 1 holiday

3 events

1547 - Henry VIII dies. His nine year old son, Edward VI becomes King, and the first Protestant ruler of England.
(I have this fascination about the wives of Henry VIII. Love the books by Philippa Gregory on Katherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn and Anne of Cleves.)

1813 - Pride and Prejudice is first published in the United Kingdom.
(How can I not list this out? P&P is one of my favorite books/mini-series. Who could forget the swoon-worthy Colin Firth as Mr Darcy in BBC's adaptation? Aitelyu... I could watch THAT scene over and over and over again... wet shirts never looked so good! LOL!)

1986 - Space Shuttle program: STS-51-L mission (Space Shuttle Challenger disaster) - Space Shuttle Challenger breaks apart 73 seconds after liftoff killing all seven astronauts onboard, including Christa McAuliffe, who was supposed to be the first teacher in space.
(I thought this would be an apt selection seeing as how Malaysia is about to choose out very first "angkasawan" or the Malaysian Can-or-naut. Heh.)

2 births

1948 - Mikhail Baryshnikov, Russian dancer
(Can I claim that great dancers *cough* like me *cough* are born on this day?)

1981 - Elijah Wood, American actor
(I love hobbits! Yes I do... almost as much as I love elves and Jedi. No one makes a more adorable hobbit than Elijah Wood and hey, he shares my birthday!)

1 holiday

World Leprosy Day
(I dunno if this is considered a holiday...)

So, I am also a curious cat blogger and I wanna know these bloggers' birthdays...
