What Day Were You Born?

Patterico has a post where his daughter asked the question…he didn’t know. 

Commenter sharon notes that she knew the day of the week she was born, from the poem:

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go.
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
Is fair and wise and good and gay.

Commenter jimf posted a link to a pretty cool site:


Pick the year and country and the site shows the calendar.

Pupster is a Sabbath Day baby…fair and wise and good and SUPER! Thanks for asking (NTTAWWT).

    Well, I had to look it up, but it appears that I was born on Monday. That makes me fair of face. Eat your heart out.

    I never had any doubt.

    I’m a Sunday girl too pups. Not gay, however.

    Meh. Thursday. Far to go. And I’m so tired already.

    I knew that, though. My brother was a Sunday boy. Mama was always throwing that rhyme at us. I’ll get him one day. Oh, yes.

    Wednesday? I am not ‘full of woe’!! I am full of crap!
    Stupid kid’s rhyme! Bah-Humbug!!

    I’m 47 years old. I didn’t know that until now.

    I’m not full of woe.

    Piss and vinegar, my friends tell me.

    I’ll choose to believe that means “You’re going far, baby!” or

    “You’ll live a long time!”

    Another Thursday, here. And, Mrs. BrewFan was a Thursday. I’m going to see if I can use this knowledge to ‘get lucky’.
