December 6th is a special day at Who2: it’s the only day of the year on which nobody in our database was born. That’s 2843 famous people (and counting) and none of them born on December 6th.
The 6th has been the lone holdout for a couple of years now. Even February 29 is well represented by rapper Ja Rule and Mother Ann Lee of the Shakers, among others.
Still, we have proudly pledged ourselves not to go hunting for a celebrity born on December 6th whom we could profile just to fill the gap. Friendly users occasionally send us lists of famous (or semi-famous) people born today, but we delete such letters unread. It has to happen naturally or it just won’t be right.
[2016 update: 10 years later, we’re up to 4000+ famous people and we do now have people born on December 6th, including director Judd Apatow, jazz great Dave Brubeck, and the “last Lancaster,” King Henry VI. Hallelujah!]

My son was born 6th Dec 2006
Congrats to him! (And to you!) We need more people on this date, clearly.
My son is born Dec 6, 1989. The feast of St Nick- not his name though. He teaches 5 and 6 Graders history. To the kids he teaches he is a celebrity. 😀
Thanks for the sweet comment! 🙂 Good for your son, too. My folks taught 4th and 6th grades — wonderful years for the kids, and fun history topics, too.
