Happy Birthday, y'all

I don’t remember it, but I’m told I was born on the last day of the year sometime near the middle of the last century. In addition, I’ve found that God commonly added some important people to the world as he was filling his end of year quotas. Here are some of them:

Jacques Cartier, 1491
Andreas Vesalius, 1514
Emperor Go-Yōzei, 1571
Herman Boerhaave, 1668
Charles Lord Cornwallis, 1738
Henri Matisse, 1869
Elizabeth Arden, 1878
George C. Marshall Jr., 1880
Simon Wiesenthal, 1908
Pat Brady, 1914
Anthony Hopkins, 1937
John Denver, 1943
Gabby Douglas, 1995
