fun facts

So today, after watching my tennis lover Roger Federer win his 15th grand slam, I saw that we both married in April 2009! and ironically, our original date was the same date as his, April 11.

And! his opponent, the serving speed-demon Andy Roddick, was also wed in April 2009!

And...for the heck of it, I wiki'd April 4th. It gives you a list of all the events and births that occurred on that day. It's REALLY interesting.

Just a few fun events that share our wedding date:
-In 1818, the United States Congress adopts the flag of the United States with 13 red and white stripes and one star for each state (then 20).
-In 1850, Los Angeles, California is incorporated as a city.

What are some cool things that share your wedding date?
