To my birthday’s symbolize the day a person came into this world.  So yes we celebrate birthdays. It is a huge deal now days with a child of our own. (He just turned one in Sept).  DH and I for own birthdays basically just make a special meal and have cake/ice cream.

I always take my birthday off of work and do something special for myself…

Absolutely. Why not celebrate the anniversary of your birth?!

Yes, I don’t celebrate the person’s age but it’s like a day to celebrate the person. There’s MLK day, birthdays are like that to me. I even celebrate my pets’ birthdays by spoiling them and singing “happy birthday” at them the whole day long.

On my own birthday, I reserve the right to do whatever I damn well please. I normally take the day off. One time I loved my job so much that I very willingly worked all day on my birthday. That told me a lot about what I love to do as a career.

Any occasion that I get presents can’t be all bad.

@SillySavage:  I love birthdays. More than Christmas!

I dunno, I just get so excited and it brings back those feelings I had when I was a little kid. I’m not one of those people that loves to be the center of attention all the time (I’m no party animal, that’s for sure), but I like it when people say ‘happy birthday’ and I love presents. I love being able to pick a place to go out for dinner and/or have my favorite meal made for me, guilt-free. I love ice cream cake as well and ask for it every year 🙂

I am definitely not a surprise party kinda girl, but to be with my bf and family is great.

I try to make an effort for others’ birthdays too, but I keep in mind what they’d actually want (i.e. no surprise parties for my equally introverted boyfriend!).
