Fun Birthday Trivia:
The earliest birthday parties in history were held because people thought that evil spirits would visit them on their birthdays. They stayed close to their family and friends for protection. Later parties became social gatherings where friends and family would bring gifts or flowers to the person having their birthday. Today birthday parties are held just for fun!

Prize #4:

Fourth question: Do you still live in the same town you were born in?

Trinka said...

Nope...but the next town over. I live in Arlington Tx which hosts the Dallas Cowboy stadium, Texas Ranger Stadium, Six Flags, and Hueeican harbor...much to do and love my city!

Nancy said...

I live one town over now. Even if I were living in my 'baby home,' it would not be the same town. The hospital was one town over from my house, but in the opposite direction than the one I'm living in now. (This makes perfect sense in my mind, but is confusing on paper. Sorry.)

mcjeeps said...

Nope, anywhere but that town!

Jane said...

Mary said...

No I do not live in the town I was born in. My parents lived in the city when I was born and decided they wanted to bring up their children in the country. They moved to the next town over and I grew up on a farm two houses from where I live now. Thanks for all the great give-away prizes. Very Exciting Day! Happy B-Day

I actually never lived in the town I was born in! I was raised in a small no-hospital town, so my parents made a 30 minute drive to a bigger town with a hospital. Now I live 3000 miles away on the East coast of the U.S., but I'll always be a West coast girl at heart!

No, far from it ... both in terms of number of moves and location. I'm midway across the nation from where I was born, in Boston MA. And, let's see ... a rough guess has 14 moves so far, tho' I've been in this location the longest - now 20 years! My, how time flies when you're having fun!

Thanx for the inspiration and blog candy opp ... this trip down memory lane's been fun!
