Smokey Bear
News Headline: “Smokey the Bear turns 70”.
News Headline: “800th birthday celebration planned for the Magna Carta.”
News Headline:  Honoring Mahatma Gandhi’s 145th birthday at the White House.”
And as a  birthday present to them all, a reminder:
There is no “the” in Smokey Bear.
There is no “the” in front of Magna Carta.
There is always a “the” in front of the Mahatma Gandhi.
Happy Birthdays!
