Famous People Born on Christmas Day

A compelling and lighthearted list of people, apart from Jesus Christ, who were born on Christmas Day.

Discard the tinsel, take down the tree, forget about the turkey, giveaway the presents and you’re left with the bare bones of Christmas, which fundamentally are all about the celebration of one person’s birthday.

Yet putting God’s only son to one side for a moment, who else apart from Jesus Christ was born on Christmas day?

Sir Issac Newton

Old Issac revolutionized the world through science and was the first scientist to receive the honor of being buried in Westminster Abbey when he died on March 20, 1727.

Born on Christmas day in 1642, Sir Newton defined the laws of motion and universal gravitation after an apple fell on his head. Issac made it his business to invent integral calculus and is worshipped by mathematicians to this day. On top of all that Newton also constructed the first reflecting telescope and you could describe him as the patron saint of modern science.

Humphrey Bogart

He was no angel, but the Casablanca star was born on Christmas Day, 1899. Considered by many as the greatest male actor of all time, Bogart appeared in 75 films, the most notable being The African Queen, The Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep, and of course, Casablanca.

Conrad Hilton

If it wasn’t for the birth of Conrad Hilton on Christmas Day in 1887, the world would have never experienced the delights and talents of Paris Hilton. The dipsy socialite’s great grandfather founded the international chain of hotels which bear his name.

Quentin Crisp

The gay icon and author of ‘The Naked Civil Servant’ would be considered a sodomite in the era of the old testament, but it is a fact nevertheless that Quentin Crisp shares the same birthday as Jesus Christ.

Annie Lennox

The Scottish singer-songwriter and former singer of the Eurythmics who loves “Walking on Broken Glass” was born on Christmas Day, 1954. She once sung a song called, “I Saved the World Today,” which seems to suggest the aging songbird might just be harboring a messiah complex.

Sissy Spacek

Best known for her breakthrough role as Carrie White in the 1976 horror flick Carrie, little Sissy was also born on the day of days, in 1949, Quitman, Texas. She also appeared in the cult films 'Badlands,' which inspired the Bruce Springsteen song of the same name. 

Rod Serling

The “angry young man” of Hollywood and creator of The Twilight Zone, Rod Serling perhaps got his fondness for strange stories as a result of sharing his birthday with the son of god.
