April 26 William Shakespeare Baptized Stratford upon Avon

What happened on April 26?

This poetic day in 1564 marks the day William Shakespeare was baptized in Stratford-upon-Avon. As his official date of birth is unknown, we celebrate his baptism on the day also known as World Intellectual Property Day.
So no IP theft, please. Not today, or any other day.

We do have all the official dates for the other party people though. All the way back to 1798 when French painter and lithographer Eugène Delacroix was born.

Comedian Kevin James (*1965) and architect I. M. Pei (*1917) cut the birthday cake, whilst three actors perform a stunning show!
Let’s raise a glass for Jet Li (*1963), Giancarlo Esposito (*1958), and Channing Tatum (*1980).
