Date::DayOfWeek::BirthUser3Contributed Perl DocumeDate::DayOfWeek::Birthday(3)

NAME
       Date::DayOfWeek::Birthday - Monday's child is fair of face ...

SYNOPSIS
	   use Date::DayOfWeek::Birthday;
	   $personality	= birthday( 25,	10, 1971 ); # day month	year

DESCRIPTION
	   Monday's child is fair of face.
	   Tuesday's child is full of grace.
	   Wednesday's child is	full of	woe.
	   Thursday's child has	far to go.
	   Friday's child is loving and	giving.
	   Saturday's child works hard for his living.
	   The child that is born on the Sabbath day
	    is great, and good,	and fair, and gay.

       Although	our Jewish friends would disagree with the designation of
       Sunday as "the Sabbath day," the	above poem puepoerts to	describe the
       character of an individual based	on the day of their birth.

       I'm not certain as to the origins of this poem. I'm trying to track
       that down.

       Note also that there are	various	other versions of this poem, depending
       on which	part of	the world you come from. Another version, for example,
       says that ...

	   The child that is born on the Sabbath day
	    is bonny and blithe	and good and gay.

       And yet another says that ...

	   The child that is born on the Sabbath day
	    is witty and wise and good and gay.
