Happy Birthday to Me. Again.

Happy Birthday to Me

This is a Bavarian public service announcement, brought to you by your favorite narcissistic royal.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas Eve is here! I do so love the sacred day upon which both I and Jesus Christ are celebrated. Back in 1837, a mere 176 years ago, in the Munich Palace – on a Sunday, no less – out I popped. Complete with a tooth. Nobody could have guessed then that I would end up the last Habsburg empress. Which leads me to wonder, what future monarchs are being born (or even, conceived!) right this very minute?

Ponder that whilst you watch It’s a Wonderful Life for the 1400th time.

And just because I’m in a generous mood, I give you Johann’s Vienna Waltz.
