1st of January 1994 is the most important day of my life, as it is the day I was born, the day I was given life by my parents for what I must thank them for the rest of their days. I also express my gratitude to all of you who came here to listen to my birthday speech. It is an honor for me to share my feelings about this day with you, and I hope you feel the same.

My birthdate in the World History
This day was not only the day of my birth; it was also the beginning of the International Year of Family (IYF, n.d.), the day Bill Gates got married (Melinda Gates, n.d.), and North American Free Trade Agreement finally going into effect (North American Free Trade Agreement, n.d.). It means a lot for me to be born in parallel with these important events.
Important political events like the Zapatista Uprising also occurred on 01.01.1994 (The Zapatista uprising, n.d.). It was also the day Karamazov brothers finally closed in New York after 50 performances (Historical events, n.d.). On that very day, Grand Night after Singing also closed after 52 performances (A Grand Night for Singing, n.d.).
My birthdate in my family history
The date of my birth is surrounded by various family events, the most notable one is that I was born on the 10 year wedding anniversary of my parents ! From that moment, 1st of January 1994 became an even more important day that it was before. My parents say that during my birthday the weather was exactly the same as at the time of their wedding.
Another interesting fact is that my uncle met his beloved at the very same day. Even now my uncle still jokes about me being some sort of his “luck talisman” that helped him to finally find the one he was looking for. Back then I would not probably give that much attention to these details, but now when I think about it, I do not believe that was just a coincidence.
Coincidences happen, but not that many, and especially during the New Year ! My Mom and Dad have always said that I was the best gift that they could ever get, and I feel the same way in a sense that the gift of the new life that they granted me with is something I will never forget. I sincerely hope that all future birthdays will be as memorable as mine.
There was also an another small event that happened in parallel with my birthday, like my younger brother finally receiving the present he wanted for so long – a huge remote control robot with lasers and noisy sounds. Little did he know that Santa also had another present for him. Perhaps not as wanted as that robot, but still the one that could be played with.
I am extremely glad to be born on this day not only because of these important events, but also because I was born at the beginning of the New Year, which is essentially the start of new life period for each of us, and I am glad to be a part of this new cycle in some way. Thank you for sharing this moment with me, and I am looking forward to hearing about your birthdays too.
