April 6

What happened on April 6?

Swedish pop band ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest with their song “Waterloo” in 1974, launching their international career.

And one year later, American actor and director Zach Braff (*1975) got his life launched by his parents.

There are many more parents that we should thank on this beautiful day!
We also celebrate the birthdays of Italian painter and architect Raphael (*1483), French poet and playwright Jean-Baptiste Rousseau (*1671), American actor Paul Rudd (*1969) and Dutch plane engineer Anthony Fokker (*1890).

Fokker’s planes were the pride of Dutch national carrier KLM back in the day.
Today, their American counterpart, United Airlines, celebrates its founding day from 1926.

21 years later, in 1947, the first Tony Awards are presented for best theatrical achievements.

And going down history even further, we commemorate the opening of the first modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1896.
An incredible 1,500 years after the original games were banned by Roman emperor Theodosius I. He probably wasn’t much of an athlete himself.

Back in the day there was no proper coverage from major sports events like the Olympic games. But thanks to companies like Germany’s BASF, established today in 1865, and China’s Xiaomi (established in 2010), we can now all enjoy them on videocassette or mobile.
