Today is an extremely awesome day. Let’s examine the facts, shall we? First of all, not to quote Rebecca Black or anything, but it’s Friday. Secondly? It’s the Friday before Memorial Day weekend. Finally, and perhaps best of all, it’s Chris Colfer’s (Kurt) 21st birthday! We love a cause for celebration at Wetpaint — and there’s nothing better than celebrating birthdays!

So as is tradition, we’d like to list 10 reasons why we adore Chris:
