Saturday Night Social: Don't Forget Overshadowed BirthdaysS

It's just dumb luck if your birthday happens to coincide with a major holiday like Christmas or Arbor Day, but when it's overlooked because of a middling holiday invented by boozy Catholics who wanted a plausible excuse to cheat during Lent, well, that seems downright unfair. Before you start brushing the green dye out of your teeth this evening, be sure to celebrate some of the notable people born on this, the day that St. Patrick greedily stole from them: Nat King Cole (1919), Rob Lowe (1964), Alexander McQueen (1969), Mia Hamm (1972), Nicole "Coco" Austin (1979), and noted American serial killer, John Wayne Gacy (1942).
