A historical note:
While William Shakespeare's actual date of birth is unclear, we know that he was baptized on April 26th, 1564. As baptisms took place a few days after a child's birth, historians believe that Shakespeare was born on April 23rd. Interstingly, April 23rd is also the date of his death.
