Anniversaries in 2012 

Just as well that the British are not as persuaded by the influence of numbers as the Chinese, it turns out that 2012 will mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic!

However, there are other anniversaries that do give cause for celebration, 2012 is the 200th anniversay of the birth of one of the world's greatest writers, Charles Dickens.

Incredibly, it is also the 400th anniversary of the Cotswold Olimpicks at Chipping Campden, England. The event, which features many strange sports peculiar to the British countryside, such as Shin-Kicking, was started by Robert Dover back in 1612.
