A MeMe using Wikipedia

I liked this so I will repeat it here but in the vein of Os, I will not be tagging others. See Os's post to follow directions properly if you wish to tag others.

Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (month and day).
Write down 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday and tag 5 friends.
There are five slots in the Birthday Meme.
As you are tagged, you have to remove the name in the first slot and bump everyone up so that your name can be added to the bottom.

Three Events:
1885 - L.A. Thompson patents the roller coaster
1892 - At the YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts, the first official basketball game is played
1986 - Martin Luther King, Jr., day was celebrated as a federal holiday for the first time

Two Birthdays:
1896 - George Burns, American actor, comedian (d. 1996)
1906 - Aristotle Onassis, Greek industrialist (d. 1975)

One Holiday/Observance:
Presidential Inauguration Day in the United States (since 1937)
