You choose any date in 1982 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 2nd November 1982, we'll fill your crossword print with events that took place on 2nd November in different years.

This print is a great gift for anyone turning 40 in 2022. And it's really personal too, because you can customise the crossword clue for 1982. You might add a clue like 'Harry Manning (world's grumpiest dad) is born' or 'Joe Spinner, world's best uncle, is born'. 

Imagine the surprise when whoever you're giving your print to sees 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, 1982, is shown in larger text than the other years in the crossword grid. The age, 40, appears in large, pale grey text behind the crossword clues.


There's a picture in the gallery that shows the personalisation options:

  • personalised with any date from 1982 (day and month) - your date is shown as a title at the bottom of the print
  • personalised with a crossword clue for your chosen date - this appears among the clues printed below the crossword grid
  • add your own (optional) subtitle - this is printed right at the bottom of the print, below the title
