If you haven’t already figured it out, today is my birthday. For the last 26 years, I’ve had to live with being born on Christmas Eve. I won’t bore you with my life’s story but I’ll just say that it isn’t as great as it sounds.
I haven’t had to deal with this alone, however, as my twin brother (yes, I am a twin but not the identical kind) and uncle are also born on Christmas Eve. We are not the only ones born on that day so I have shared a few more famous names who were also born on Christmas Eve along with some background information (courtesy biography.com).
