Michigan born celebrities celebrating birthdays in April

Posted by

In the initial Roman calendar April was the second month of the year until January and February were added in 700 BC. Being the fourth month of the year in the Gregorian calendar, the fifth in the early Julian, April is the first of four months to have a length of 30 days, and the second of five months to have a length of less than 31 days.

April is named after the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite. In the Roman calendar, April is spelled Aprilis, meaning “to open.” … The name Aprilis, then, fits April, because in so many places in the northern hemisphere April is the month when trees and flowers begin to bloom and go on to flower.

Here is a list of celebrities, all from the Mitten state, who throughout the 20th century have all contributed something to Hollywood. These people were all born in the month of April. If you are a native Michigander, and are presently working to establish your name in the film industry, you are in good company.
