Happy buffday Pete!


You'll be catching up with us old farts soon, yay!


P.S. this is not like the Queen of England thing, where there's an official Birthday and an actual birthday, right; Like yours gets celebrated on the opening of Rangers training camp or something?


That shizzle can get complicated:


The sovereign's birthday was first officially marked in the United Kingdom in 1748. Since then, the date of the king or queen's birthday has been determined throughout the British Empire and later the Commonwealth according to either different royal proclamations issued by the sovereign or governor or by statute laws passed by the local parliament. The date of the celebration today varies as adopted by each country and is generally set around the end of May to start of June, to coincide with a high probability of fine weather in the Northern Hemisphere for outdoor ceremonies, rather than with the monarch's actual birthday, that of the present monarch being 21 April.[1] In some cases, it is an official public holiday, sometimes aligning with the celebration of other events.
