I am Officially Amused

...by this story from Fr. Longenecker at Standing on my Head:

"It seems a British astronomer has 'proved' that Jesus was born in June. You can read about it here. The exact date is June 17, 2 BC. "

That's my birthday! Also, astronomy is fun!

Hey, that's my oldest son's birthday too! (a few centuries later than 2 BC though)

Mm-hmmm. Makes me feel young.

I have always liked the very primeness about the number 17, too.
