Sharing Birthday With USA

When she was young, Janice Whitaker thought the fireworks were in her honor. “Very self-absorbed, right?” It wasn't long before she learned the picnics and parades noted the birth of the country. But she was willing to share. “As a mom of teenagers and adult children, I became disappointed that they would rather be with their friends on the 4th than with their mom who was celebrating another milestone. Oh, well. Welcome to adulthood”/Paul Turner, The Slice. More here.

DFO: My brother-in-law Mike was born on Pearl Harbor Day; my sister Eileen and sister-in-law Laura were born on Flag Day; and my sister-in-law Lisa was born on New Year's Eve.

Question: Are any members of your extended family born on a holiday or a special USA day?
