How the Uber-geek calendar works

You know... with a big, fat, Cuban family like mine, there's bound to be a birthday every month.
And I'm bound to forget some birthdays, too.  (Sue me. I'm human. =D)

But I remembered that today is my niece, Natalie's birthday.

Happy Birthday, Natzinhimer!

I remember this date because, being an uber-geek, we celebrate this date in history as the date The One Ring Was Destroyed.  (Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien - geek reference for the uninformed....)

Yes, we watch the movie (extended version, of course) and have a big feast to celebrate the Return of the King.

Because my uber-geekiness knows no bounds.
But this means I always remember Nat's birthday, too.  =D
