Happy Birthday Erica!

I hate my own birthday but love other people's. So in honor of Erica I am going to play the Wikipedia birthday game:

April 5th

Events:
1. 1614 - In Virginia, Native American Pocahontas marries English colonist John Rolfe. (Awww.)
2. 1932 - Alcohol prohibition in Finland ended. Alcohol sales started in Alko liquor stores. (Woo hoo!)
3. 1972 - Vietnam War: North Vietnamese forces invade Binh Long Province, launching a second front of the Nguyen Hue Offensive. (This was the actual day I was born!)

I'm choosing to ignore the fact that there are also several events involving or related to airline disasters on my birthday.

Births:
1. 1908 - Bette Davis, American actress (d. 1989)
2. 1949 - Judith Resnik, American astronaut (d. 1986)

Holidays:
Arbor Day in South Korea (plant a tree! then hug it!)
