Btw, Hans Christian Anderson was born on April 2, 1805, a shoe-maker's son who became Denmark's famous author. Anderson wrote around 350 stories. Even after his death Hans Christian Anderson is still remembered today. Hans Anderson died on August 4, 1875. Denmark's people always celebrate his birthday with a party called "Odin Story Day". The Anderson home in Odense is now a museum, and thousand of people visit it every year.
