You choose a date in 1952 and we use it to create a unique 'on the day you were born' crossword print showing events from history that happened on the same date but in different years. For example, if you choose 23rd August 1952, we'll fill your print with events that took place on 23rd August in different years.
This fascinating print is a brilliant gift for anyone turning 70 in 2022.
You can customise the crossword clue for 1952, so you can create a really personal print. For example, you could add a clue like 'Felicity (world's best mum) is born' or 'Auntie Jodie, world's biggest chatterbox, is born'.
Imagine the surprise when whoever you're giving this print to discovers their own date of birth on the crossword!
A mix of different events will appear on your crossword. There will be at least 20 dates, including historically important events, dates on which famous people were born or died, events from music and entertainment, and any other interesting dates we come across while researching your date.
The date appears at the bottom of the print, as a title, and the year, 1952, is shown in larger text than the other years in the crossword grid. The age, 70, appears in large, pale grey text behind the crossword clues.
