What is up with this weekend?

Just a minor curiosity...I made a comment to Gooseneck the other day, wondering what was up. I know no less than 8 people with birthdays in the three-day span running March 12-March 14. None share a year, so it makes me wonder what goes on in the middle of June that gets everybody all torn up. Goose suggested summer loving, which is as good an answer as any, I suppose.

Me? I was conceived in the neighborhood of Memorial Day weekend 1976, in Wytheville, Virginia. In a Holiday Inn, which makes me happy inasmuch as the joke works on a couple of levels.

That said, three among those I know are celebrating this weekend. Please take a second this weekend to go wish bloggers Gooseneck, Cindy and Alice all a happy birthday!

Hey! Thanks for thinking of me!! :-D

(I'd say it was maybe all the June weddings, but I'm my parents' third kid, so that wasn't their excuse... hrmmm... unless maybe they'd been to someone else's wedding and came home inspired...)

Keep in mind that June is a big month for weddings. Given all of the subsequent honeymoonage, it should be no surprise to see the inevitable sequelae: a boatload of March babies.

Thanks Tommy! And I think Elisson may be on to something there.

Feh. June weddings are like Santa Claus, representative democracy and Emmanuel Lewis: neat ideas, but they don't exist in practice.
