Wikipedia tag

I was tagged to do this ages ago but I completely forgot about it until I went through the drafts in my posts looking for something to post, So here it is:
Wikipedia
The rules are:
1) Go to Wikipedia
2) In the search box, type your birth month and day but not the year.
3) List three events that happened on your birthday
4) List two important birthdays
5) List two deaths
6) One holiday or observance (if any)
7) Tag 5 other bloggers to complete
THREE EVENTS:
1848 - California Gold Rush; US President James K Polk confirms that large amounts of Gold have been discovered in California.
1964 - Vietnam War; For his heroism in battle earlier in the year, Captain Roger Donlon is awarded the first Medal of Honour for the War.
1989 - TGV Atlantique sets a new railways speed record with 482.4 KM/H.
TWO BIRTHDAYS:
1901 - Walt Disney.
1985 - Frankie Muniz; Malcom in the Middle.
TWO DEATHS:
1951 - Shoeless Joe Jackson; American Baseball Player.
2005 - Kevin McQuay; Big Kev "I'm Excited".
HOLIDAY/OBSERVANCE:
Belgium, Czech Republic, Slovakia, the Netherlands & the UK - Saint Nicholas Eve; apparently like Christmas but it is St Nicholas of Myra's (Santa Claus) birthday being celebrated and he brings the good children presents in the Netherlands. In France he brings sticks with which the bad children are beaten. In Belgium children put carrots & sugar cubes for his donkey in their shoes which they leave near the fireplace and the next morning find them replaced with their presents
TAG 5 OTHER BLOGGERS:
I Tag everyone who has already done this but to do it with their birthday reversed (eg 5 December becomes 12 May) if your birthday is higher than 12 add the 2 numbers together to get a lower number (eg 27 = 2+7 = 9)!
