Birthday Shout-Outs! (10/2011)

Darling Jen Darling Jen
October 2011

Welcome to the Birthday Club’s tenth post of birthday shout-outs! Once a month will be a forum announcement to celebrate the birthdays of our favorite Eden Staff, reviewers, and contributors! So wish everyone a happy birthday and let the celebration begin!

Thanks to the amazing generosity of EdenFantasys, every contributor who participates in the birthday club will receive a $25 gift card for their birthday month! These are distributed weekly and are only given to those who send in their birthdays on time to be included in the monthly posts!

And if you have yet to submit your own birthday, PM or email me now! These are the only accepted forms of birthday submissions because it allows me to store them and not worry about missing one of you. Also, if you don’t get your birthday to me before the shout-out gets posted for your month, you will not be mentioned in the post and are ineligible for the GC that month. But don’t worry! You’ll still be in my records when your birthday comes around again!

To make celebrating with our fellow Eden contributors more interesting and special, every month has its own characteristics and history so I’ll be sharing a little of that each time. It’s not going to be extensive information because that would take up entirely too much space and leave me with nothing to do next year. But it does add a little spice to every month of the year and, hey, you might learn a little something too!

If you LOVE Eden for giving you $25 gift card birthday presents and if you LOVE celebrating birthdays together as a community then Support the Birthday Club! I'm looking for a little community participation as I begin to plan and design the birthday format for 2012 (it’s closer than you think). Whoever provides the best/ most useful/ most inspiring Birthday Club idea for next year will be given 500 Edenpoints from me directly. That's an extra $5 for you to use on your next order - whether it's your birthday or not! The theme is – What would make you love the Birthday Club more? What would get you more involved? What else would you want to learn in the posts?

There will be one winner, they will be decided by me, their idea will be incorporated in the Birthday Club format for 2012 with creative licensing, and entries will need to be submitted to me by PM or email ONLY. If you choose to collaborate with other forum members, you will have to decide amongst yourselves how to split the GC because there will be only one.

“October is nature's funeral month. Nature glories in death more than in life. The month of departure is more beautiful than the month of coming - October than May. Every green thin loves to
die in bright colors.”
~ Henry Ward Beecher

Birthstone – Opal
Zodiac Sign (September 23rd – October 22nd) – Libra

Libra

Under the ruling planet of Venus, this is the cardinal air sign of the zodiac, symbolized by the scales, which is also the only inanimate object of the zodiac. It represents in many cultures, over many centuries of time, weighing harvest of a season (the very sustainment of life) as well as the soul and actions of those who had passed. It’s this weighing back and forth that give Libras their best (and worst) feature. Yes, you can be somewhat indecisive. But you can also be quite the mediator and compromiser. You are often a diplomat, seeing things from multiple angles and not solely focused on your own. Just make sure to remember to make a decision and to execute it, ok?

You are also quite the romantic heart with special charm. You love love, don’t you? In fact, you may bring out a bit of the jealous streak in your partner because you can occasionally be too flirty or self-indulgent. But if you pair right and your partner knows you well, then you both know that you make too strong of a bond with your partner to be that flighty.

Your main colors are pink, blue, and lavendar. The physical body parts that correspond to your sign (yes, the zodiac has body parts too) are the lower back and kidneys. These may be areas of importance to you or areas you experience chronic issues with. Your flowers are rose, pansy, foxglove, daisy, and hydrangea. Some famous Libras include Barbara Walters, Jesse Jackson, Christopher Reeves, William Faulkner, Luciano Pavarotti, Carrie Fisher, Dwight Eisenhower, Margaret Thacher, and Eleanor Roosevelt.

If you’re at the tail end of the month and don’t fall under this sign, no frets! We can’t do repeats for every month so your sign will be next month with November. But also keep in mind, for anyone who has even an inkling of interest in astrology, that the closer you are to another sign in birthday, the more characteristics you share with them.

This Month in History:

Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Founded in 1985, the first step of the partnership between the American Cancer Society and Imperial Chemical Industries (the pharmaceutical division of which manufactured multiple breast cancer treatment drugs) was to promote the mammography as the most effective weapon in the fight against breast cancer.

October 2 – International Day of Non-Violence – This day was chosen to mark an international celebration of non-violence because it is Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday. According to General Assembly resolution of June 15th 2007 this day is an occasion to "disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness".

October 31 – Halloween (also known as All Hallows’ Eve) is said to have originated as an ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. They celebrated their new year on November 1 and marked the festival with dances and costumes to ward off ghosts and evil spirits. It was later (609 A.D.) adopted by the Catholic church as a Christian holiday to come before the November 1st created holiday called All Saints Day and October 31 became All Martyrs Day. It gets really complicated but basically a lot of cultures and religions had its hand on this holiday which is, ultimately, a securely holiday was costumes, candy, and friendly scares.

October 1, 1908 – The Model T by Henry Ford went on sale.

October 1, 1949 – The People’s Republic of China was founded with Mao Zedong as Chairman.

October 3, 1863 – President Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation designating the last Thursday in November as Thanksgiving Day.

October 3, 1929 – Yugoslavia became the official name of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.

October 3, 1990 – After 45 years of Cold War division, East and West Germany were reunited as the Federal Republic of Germany.

October 4, 1830 – Belgium gained its independence, after having been a part of the Netherlands since 1815.

So who celebrates their birthday in a Halloween theme (whether it's at the end of the month or not)? Or who will this year?

My B-day is the 16th, so it's a little early for the Halloween thing.
