CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



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



DESCRIPTION



    Mondays child is fair of face.
    Tuesdays child is full of grace.
    Wednesdays child is full of woe.
    Thursdays child has far to go.
    Fridays child is loving and giving.
    Saturdays 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.
