A friend of mine just posted a link on Facebook to this interactive "heat map" that shows how common different birthdays are . You should check it out -- it's pretty interesting, and the interface is cool too. (Just hover over a birthday to see its rank.) After Leap Day, the least common birthday is Christmas Day, followed by New Year's Day. It's a pretty quick visualization, also noted on the blog, that July, August and September are the most common birth dates, so folks do tend to conceive during the winter holidays.

Distracted by the making of paragraphs and domestic duties, I overlooked that March 1 was the ninety-first birthday of Richard Wilbur, one of our most distinguished poets. I heard him read once when I was undergraduate, and a more urbane, witty, and polished master of verse you cannot find. His translations of Moliere are a pleasure both to read and to hear. And his version of Villon's Ou sont les neiges d'antan? is perfect in English in its concision and melancholy realism: "But where shall last year's snow be found?"

This could start something. Let's hope not. A Towson University student, Twitter handle @michonjanieceIV, sent out a tweet Wednesday night politely explaining to her professor that she would not be attending class the next day, in honor of Beyonce's birthday. "On September 4, 1981," the tweet reads in part, "The Lord blessed us all with the Goddess that is Queen Beyonce Knowles-Carter's birthday. Out of respect, I will not be attending class today. " @michonjanieceIV later sent out a second tweet, swearing that she'd meant to save her earlier effort as a draft, but sent it out by mistake.

For many of us, Leonard Bernstein will always loom large. The conductor/composer/mentor/mensch left an enormous mark not just on the classical music and theater worlds, but on the world, period. I owe a lot of my own views about music and, especially, music-making to Bernstein. Although I only met him once, and all too briefly, during a crazy evening that started at the Kennedy Center and ended up at the Watergate Hotel (no, silly, not that kind of evening), I came to feel that he was a part of my life somehow.

Wednesday is Baltimore's 285th birthday. Or is it? A quick Google search declares July 30, 1729, as the day the city was founded. That's when the colonial assembly of Maryland passed the bill that established Baltimore as a town. But historians such as Fred Shoken say deciding what day to celebrate the city's birth isn't so simple. "It's sort of like, take your pick," Shoken said. The native Baltimorean, who works as a historic preservation consultant, said he prefers Aug. 8. That's when Gov. Benedict Leonard Calvert signed the bill into law. Some also might consider Dec. 31, 1796, the date the city was incorporated, or maybe even Jan. 12, 1730, when surveyors laid out the town.

Since she was 7 years old, Donatila Leticia Munoz Orantes has wanted to become a U.S. citizen. On Wednesday, her 100th birthday, her wish came true. Munoz Orantes, a native Nicaraguan who lives with her daughter in Germantown, came to the United States from El Salvador in the 1980s and never left. "It's a wonderful country," Munoz Orantes, who was joined by family and friends at her naturalization ceremony in Baltimore, said during a recent interview at her daughter's home. Because Munoz Orantes speaks only Spanish, her daughter interpreted for her. Munoz Orantes wasn't able to become a citizen until now because she doesn't speak English, a requirement until a resident reaches a certain age and number of years in the country.

Callie Lippert's third birthday party almost ended with a Cinderella-versus-superhero smackdown. When Marloe Lippert of Elkridge invited six of her daughter's friends over for a Cinderella dress-up birthday party, she made sure she had plenty of crowns and jewels to go around. Since it was a co-ed party, she included several superhero capes made by her neighbor Holly Hagen. “The girls loved all the princess stuff - until they saw the capes,” Lippert recalls. “They all started fighting over who was going to wear the capes, and I ended up having to put them away.
