Happy Birthday to Paramahansa Yogananda!

Paramahansa Yogananda was born 117 years ago today


I picked up a few things at the grocery store today and made my way to the checkout line. When the clerk announced that my total was $18.93, I thought, That was a very good year.

When I challenged myself to come up with something that happened in 1893, it dawned on me that this was the year in which Paramahansa Yogananda was born. Then it struck me, Wait a minute! Today is January 5! That’s Yogananda’s birthday! How cool is that!

Yep, Yogananda was born on January 5, $18.93! A cool little coincidence to be sure.

    Hehe, I wrote a blog about life in the grocery store and that was one of the jokes that customers often use =)

    Yes, I’m sure the cashiers hear the same little jokes over and over again. That’s why I didn’t say it out loud! Thanks, Paul!
