We wish you two morning show anchors a very happy birthday Today!

With all the talk about someone else’s birthday (cough, Tiger Woods, cough) we didn’t want you to forget that the dynamic duo Today Show duo of Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira share something besides a couch: it’s their birthday, too! Meredith turned 56, Matt is 52.

Since Meredith requested the day off today, Dec. 30 (smart move, Mer!) she didn’t get to join in the on-air celebrations, but she did phone in from home when actor Abe Vigoda wheeled out a cake.

Also celebrating another year today are basketball star LeBron James and former Hollywood Madam, Heidi Fleiss. Oh yeah, and some no-name athlete called Tiger Woods. We bet he’s celebrating by playing ‘Pin the Tail on the Donkey’ – on himself!
