Today, May 8th, is the birthday of the Mockingjay – Katniss Everdeen!
I kept telling myself if I could only hold out until May, just May 8th, I would turn twelve and be able to sign up for the tesserae…
Katniss, hailing from District 12, made her first appearance in front of Panem as a Tribute in the 74th Annual Hunger Games, and went on to win the Games along with fellow Tribute Peeta Mellark. Not stopping there, she returned in the 75th Hunger Games as a Quarter Quell Tribute and shook the very roots of the tyrannical government. Having been rescued from the Arena of the 75th Games, Katniss is in District 13 as prepares to turn her weapons to the Capitol.
We wish Katniss a very happy birthday!
