Happy Birthday, Edgar Allan Poe

With all the excitement of this week, The Raven Lunatic has forgotten the celebration of Edgar Allan Poe's 200th birthday. Somewhere, someone is celebrating with a "tin-tin-nabulation" of the bells. Happy birthday, Edgar, and thank you for all the pleasure you have given me from reading your words.
A bit of trivia from my Beloved Son. In February, two historic figures share the celebration of the 200th anniversary of their birth in 1809, on the same day: Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln. Quoth the raven.
