Happy Birthday Cassandra Peterson! "Elvira" was born on the same month and day as I was, September 17th!
We share a few things in common... both redheads, both Scandinavian (I'm a Thorvaldsen - family took on the name Day when my father moved here as a child), we're 1 inch apart in height, both vegetarians, both love to dance, and both have a ridiculous sense of humor and love of horror, especially bad horror!
There might be a couple other things we have in common....
I must say, I've never dressed up as Cassandra's character, Elvira, but I have to say, putting on the costume, makeup and wig, I was suddenly feeling her!
I discovered, however, that, although we have a lot in common and likely our very birth day might make us similar Virgo types, there is only one ELVIRA, one Cassandra and one Sharon.
Happy Birthday Cassandra! Thanks for being such an icon and such a good sport about all the adoration and excitement with kindness and intelligence. You do a Virgo proud!
