Anyone here have a birthday celebrated around Thanksgiving or Christmas? Do you enjoy that fact, or wish you were born at some other time of the year? I had a grandmother born on Dec 20, and a Grandfather born on Nov 28. Just curious as to what it's like. I also thought this would be an interesting topic. I thinki it's original.

    I don't but my cousin's birthday is on christmas. you would think that you would get twice as many presents but usually he would just get one. plus there is no spacing between the two so you couldn't get something as a gift in july.

            It's bad enough that my birthday is about a month after Christmas, January 22, but I would not want to have my birthday on December 25.

            *If I wrote a list for everything I wanted, and received them all for Christmas, then there's no point in celebrating a birthday.

            *I'm at that stage in my life now where receiving gifts on Christmas and birthdays doesn't mean a thing to me anymore. I stopped having birthday parties when I was 13 years old. Sure it was fun when I was younger to have a party and invite several classmates to eat cake, play games, play music, and open presents, but as you get older, you start to care less and less about materialism and aging. Most people you invite to birthday parties are just there for the cake and ice cream and aren't really your friends after all. True friends are always there for you through thick and thin, even when you're not having a party.

              If you wrote a list and got everything on it either you had very little on it or you were one lucky kid.

                      interesting topic...i have a friend whos dec 29 ya they dont get presents for both but i think if i was born on a holliday it be cool i'd want to celebrate them both separatly but get presents for one or the other not both..i dont think it would suck..very true about the present thing i dont really care anymore only thing that bugs me is the pressure to get a present as nice cause if one person gets a 60 dollar perfume n the other person gets some 12 dollar body wash or w/e it's always awkward..n ya w/e its the thought that counts but still

                          mine is the day after yours.

                          My neice is a week before christmas, so she typically has Pajama parties.

                            it's not in any month ending in "ber" (thank god, as you don't graduate with all the rest of the people born in your year, some rule about you gotta be 5 before october 1st to attend kindergarten :roll:)

                            but

                            in March, once every 11 years, my birthday is on Easter. The next time it happens is in 2008.

                              according to my aunt, a teacher, she says the cutoff is Sept 15.

                                My birthday is a week before Christmas and it SUCKS! I (kinda) get screwed out of presents by friends, but worst of all money is so tight that no one really wants to go out for a birthday that close to Christmas!

                                      My oldest nieces birthday is the 23rd, and my cousins the 26th. People think the can get away with a Hallmark card.
