Happy Birthday, Mr. Holmes!

Shame on me – without the holmesslash people over at yahoogroups I would have actually forgotten the “birthday” of our favourite supersleuth, Mr. Sherlock Holmes.

Happy Birthday!!!

YES, I am actually aware that he is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s literary creation and therefore the matter of a birthday seems a bit… obsolete. But to most Sherlockians, Holmesians, or whatever you want to call us, it is not… so the 6th of January was kind of agreed upon (see Klinger, Leslie: The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes).
