The Birthday Chronicle {Review}

Ever wondered what the newspaper looked like the day you were born? Now you can print out your own copy! (Well, as close to the actual paper as possible) Introducing The Birthday Chronicle:


"A personalized (8 1/2 x 11) mini-newspaper front page, going back as far as January 1, 1900 up to December 31, 2010. Your Birthday Chronicle includes a greeting, by name, from the then-President of the United States, plus newspaper headlines and stories from the year of your birth.

You will enjoy reading your Birthday Chronicle over and over again. Always a conversational piece with groups young and old ... you will be able to read and reminisce about the academy award winners and the top music hits and songs from the year of your birth.

Great gift idea for a birthday, a party or just to hang in any room."

I received The Birthday Chronicle to review, and it's such a unique product! I chose to use my own birthday, March 1st, since Jace was born in 2011 (out of the time range available.) All I had to do was email Casie my name, birthday, and any specific headline I'd like, and voila! In less than half a day, she'd sent me my Birthday Chronicle via email. 


This is mine just printed out on plain white paper, but it would look fabulous printed on certificate paper and framed. Mine looked fine on the .pdf file, but printed out a little funky at the top. I'm thinking that's totally my printer's fault, though.

It includes an "article" about the president residing noting your birth, music hits of the year, celebrities that share your birthdate, and much more! Mine even had a little note of interest telling me that as of my birthday this year, I will have been alive for 9,862 days. Talk about feeling old...

The Birthday Chronicle receives 3/5 Starfishes from Serial Access Mom!
