December 25th is just another Wednesday

Here are some significant historical facts that happened on this date, and the year they happened:

1066 : Duke William of Normandy ('William the Conqueror) crowned king of England

1492 : Columbus' ship Santa Maria runs aground and sinks on Hispaniola

1926 : Hirohito becomes emperor of Japan (1926-1989)

1947 : Taiwan passes Human Rights laws (Day of Earth Law)

1989 : Japanese scientists achieve -271.8°C, coldest temp ever recorded

Fictional events did not and do not take place, no matter how many people claim they did.
