If you’re born on December 25th, everyone forgets your birthday, but most European traditions hold that being born on Christmas makes you special.
For example, it’s said in parts of France that you’ll have the gift of prophecy.
In Russia, that you’ll be witty, wise, and virtuous.
On the other hand, in parts of Poland, they believe that a child born on Christmas is likely to become either a thief or a lawyer.
Be that as it may, you’re in good company.
Other Christmas babies include musicians Annie Lennox, Jimmy Buffett, Cab Calloway, Dean Martin, and Barbara Mandrell; actors Sissy Spacek, Charlie Chaplin, and Hattie McDaniel; Red Cross founder Clara Barton; physicist Isaac Newton; painter Joan Mir6; and writer Rod Serling.
