Plenty of people celebrate on April 20 every year, but only some celebrate something other than marijuana. The day marks a number of notable birthdays throughout history.

Traditionally, 4/20 is associated with smoking marijuana. The meaning of the date (and the time 4:20) isn't totally clear, but a friend group known as the Waldos thinks they started the trend, TIME reported.

Before the day became known as one of the most popular for indulging in a little Mary Jane, these people celebrated with birthday cake and candles.
