There are always stories in our family about the day and the way that we were born.
I was born at home on August 16th and according to my mom she was doing the laundry when shebegan to feel the contractions so she called the midwife, who was a person trained to help a woman during the childbirth. When she arrived they lit a candle and prayed, as a result, she said that she wasin labor for a very short time and it wasn’t a difficult birth.
There are also always some important historical events that happened the day the day that we were born for example on August 16th:1958 Madonna (Ciccone) was born in Bay City Mich, singer/actress (Like a Virgin)
1962 - Ringo Starr replaces Pete Best as Beatle drummer
