Because hardly anyone ever goes to Perth

It’s Sherlock Holmes’ Birthday!

Sherlockians long ago settled (in their own minds, at least) that March 8 is Sherlock Holmes' birthday.  They arrived at the date by combing through all the Holmes stories Conan Doyle ever wrote, and sifting for clues, and extrapolating from there.
