Happy Birthday, Sam Winchester! 36 Things We Love About Sam Winchester from ‘Supernatural’ for His 36th Birthday

Supernatural fans have been enamored with the Winchester Brothers since the show began almost 15 years ago. Today, Sam Winchester, played by our favorite gentle giant Jared Padalecki, turns 36 years old. Several months back we celebrated Dean Winchester’s birthday with a list of things we loved about Dean so given the opportunity, the staff jumped at the chance to gush over our beloved Sam.
