It’s my birthday today!
Besides births and deaths, February the 18th was also the day for momentous occasions such as these:
1841 – the first ongoing filibuster in the U.S. Senate (it lasted until March 11th of that year)
1929 – the first Academy Awards were announced
1930 – the planet Pluto was discovered by Clyde Tombaugh
1979 – it SNOWED in the Sahara Desert in southern Algeria for the ONLY time in recorded history (!!!)
Thank you Wikipedia, for making my birthday slightly more interesting!!!
