Don't like to be a pedant, spudqueen, but April 23 is, I believe, accepted as the likely date of Shakespeare's birth on the grounds that his baptism is recorded as April 26 1564 There is no record of the actual date of his birth, but in accordance with common practice of the time 3 days from birth to baptism would be about right. As he died on April 23 1616, it brings a nice circularity to his life; though dying, it has to be said, is not exactly the best way to celebrate your 52nd birthday!
