Did you know No:1

1000 facts

Here I am with the first “did you know” Monday of the year, more trivial facts that you may know or may not know, that may or may not interest you but my life isn’t that interesting and I like to share not only my life but other things as well.

So here we go with did you know.

In 1996 Martina Hingis became the youngest ever Wimbledon Champion, winning the Ladies doubles with Helena Sukova at the age of 15.

In 1985 Boris Becker was the youngest male to win the men’s singles aged 17 & 227days old, however, in 1989 Michael Chang, won the French Open when he was17 years & 110 days).

It is said that people born on Christmas Day are lucky in life and will never drown or be hanged also they are unable to see ghosts, really?????????????

Speaking of ghosts they appear in four Shakespearian plays, Julius Caesar, Richard 111, Hamlet & Macbeth.

The “Curse of Macbeth” is the misfortune that happens during the production of the play.

The theory goes that Shakespeare included actual black magic spells in the incantations of the weird sisters. Those who appear in the play or those who mention the play’s name within the confines of a theatre risk having these evils brought down on their heads.

  1. WHAT!?! Children born on Christmas can’t see ghosts!?! Also, they’re apparently immune to drowning and hanging?!? This is the first time I’ve heard this stereotype, and I am into it. Wow. How would anyone dream that up or connect those thoughts? I love it. I’ll be happily spreading this one.
