Edward Gorey was born on February 22, 1925. Celebrate his birthday by pulling out your favorite Gorey volume and reading it aloud while enjoying a Gin & Tonic (a favorite drink of Mr. Gorey). I know Mr. Gorey does not like the Birthday Crown, but I am making him wear it again this year!
If you are in the San Francisco area, you can celebrate the day by attending a free Edward Gorey birthday event at the Cartoon Art Museum this evening. For event details, go to http://cartoonart.org/2012/02/an-edward-gorey-birthday-party/
