Scottish singer-songwriter, political activist, and philanthropist Annie Lennox was born on December 25, 1954.
“I was born on Christmas Day, so my birthday and Christmas are blended together. As a child I used to wait all year for my birthday, so I’d have birthday presents and Christmas presents at the same time,” she told The Daily Record in 2020.
“That’s all I’ve ever known, so funny when you think about it,” she continued. “People said to me, ‘What a shame because you don’t get to have two separate celebrations.’ But it’s all I know, just Christmas and birthday all wrapped up together.”
