Day in Literature: Sherlock Holmes’ Birthday

According to the stories, today is the birthday of none other than the world’s most famous consulting detective: Mr Sherlock Holmes!

Thanks to his colleague and roommate, Dr John H. Watson, we know that the birthday boy is 163 years young today, as he is reported to have been born on January 6, 1854. While he himself is not big on social conventions, I am sure that between them, John Watson, Mrs Hudson and DI Greg Lestrade can convince Sherlock to have a piece of cake in celebration.

Happy birthday, my dear Sherlock!

Looking younger by the day 🙂
