Winter Birthdays


I never was a very big fan of having a Christmas birthday. Mine is the 29th of December. I cannot count how many Merry Christmas Santa type cards I got that had Happy Birthday scrawled into them. I had presents that had *Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday* written on it. Now, if you do not have a holiday birthday then you most likely will not understand how incredibly annoying this is. Not to mention it makes you seem inconsiderate and cheap. Just because it's Christmas time does not mean it's normal or ok to wrap my presents in santa paper. How much is it for a roll of wrapping paper really that is bithday-ish? Well I have heard now for 33 years (eeep) "I'm broke", "things are really tight after Christmas", "I'll get your present later", etc. By the time February or March rolls around, it's no longer my birthday so I'd really rather not get a pity card or gift. I mean, if you can't get it, don't get it, but spare me the speeches. I am broke too. I understand...really. I have just heard it a zillion times. I don't want to hear it again. So yeah I guess this is a pet peeve of mine and really I am not a mean girl who doesn't appreciate what she gets. I do. I just don't want you to give me a tin of Christmas cookies on my birthday and call it a birthday/Christmas combo gift because really, you aren't fooling anyone!

I bring this all up because today is my daughter's birthday. My little girl Angelina is 7 today. Her birthday I think is long enough after Christmas to be spared all the things I have gone through I think. She's pretty excited and I still need to bake her a cake!! I must mention really quickly here and for the benefit of my big sister if she reads this that I am and have always totally envied her July 2nd birthday. Swim parties and excited people! My birthday is really just snow and people who feel bad that they are broke. ;)

You tell 'em! I'd be mad if people did that to me, too! I have friends with birthdays around Xmas and New Years, and they all say the same thing. Being a fall baby, myself, I've never had to deal with that! ;)

Happy Birthday Angelina! Mine is on the 27th. Aquarians rule. Capricorns are cool too though

My daughter, Kelly's, birthday is Dec. 28th, and she would agree with everything you said. It really has been sucky for her.

I came by to thank you for the EntreCard ad. So... thank you! : )

I agree with you Sandi!! Mine is Dec. 27th so I know exactly what you are talking about. We do get ripped off & people just don't understand it. I hope Angelina had a great birthday!

Well why not host a mid-year birthday party? My mom's b-day is the 24th and I feel ya. I still won't let my family open anything on xmas eve because to me it's rude. It's her day.
