January 19 is a big day for birthdays in history. Robert E. Lee, Paula Deen, Dolly Parton, Edgar Allen Poe, Janis Joplin, and Paul Cezanne all celebrate (or celebrated, of course) their birthdays on this date, and we suspect that many of you know people celebrating their birthday today, too.
It’s difficult to say how many people celebrate a birthday on a given day, but a good guess would be at least 18,889,109. That’s 1/365th of the global population, so if our birthdays could be divided evenly, that’s how many people are celebrating this special milestone today.
At xtra xtra, we think birthdays are something worth celebrating, for each marks a special milestone in a person’s life. It signifies another 365 days’ worth of challenges met and accomplishments created, and it demonstrates how much we’re achieving with the time we’ve been given. We mark these days with flowers, presents, cakes, and cards, but we can also celebrate them by sharing them with our communities.
We invite you to create a birthday milestone on xtra xtra today. Celebrate someone’s life by showing them you care. It’s easy to create an xtra xtra milestone. You can upload a picture, tag it to a few towns, and commemorate your friend’s achievements in a post for their big day. Turn your birthday wishes into an invitation for the whole community to join in the celebration!
