With Paul McCartney 's birthday coming up, I have been thinking about all the other important dates on a Beatlemaniac's calendar. I usually have some sort of celebration on the their four birthdays and the anniversary of the Ed Sullivan. If I have left over fireworks from the Fourth of July, I let them off on the 6th (day Paul met John)

I have been thinking about doing more this year though. Does anyone have any important dates in Beatles history that they celebrate?

Not usually. I might play a record on a release date if its of some special significance but that's about it. I did used to compose George and John playlists on their respective birthdays but not any more as it began to feel forced.

On June 1st, 1967, I want to do a Sgt. Pepper concert of the album (a 50 year anniversary thing) considering that it comes once every 50 years!

Youre a bit late, 1967 has come and gone.

I celebrate their respective birthdays by playing The Birthday Boy's solo stuff while drinking from a glass with his picture on it. These are the pint glasses I have.

The first song is played while I get out the compass, point myself toward Liverpool and drink a toast to the Fab du jour.

The blue glass above is already out and ready for service tomorrow!!

I used to do that (well, not the glass thing, even though I do own Beatles glasses), but it's been a while since I last did it.

On the last Ed Sullivan show anniversary, I found these Chinese lanterns in the basement. They are like these miniature paper hot air balloons, and you light them and they more or less fly away. I light about 4 of them, but I think at events like weddings everyone is supposed to set off as many of them as they can. skylantern1.jpgImage Enlarger

We buy tons of fireworks and tell people it's for the fourth of july. We don't set them off on July 4th. We wait three days and set them off for Ringo's birthday (July 7)!
