I worked at a place (for 10 years) that anytime someone’s birthday fell during the week, we’d go to lunch and have a cake. My exH’s job was the same. Because of this, we were usually too full to do anything special on our actual bdays so we’d celebrate w/family another day. I honestly don’t think in 15 years we EVER celebrated it together (meaning dinner/cake/family.)
DH’s bday is coming up and I asked him about it b/c this year his bday is during the week and his current coworkers usually do stuff for lunch. I asked if he wanted to celebrate a different day (since I’m planning a family dinner and making a cake) and he thought it was weird that I’d want to do it a different day….he’d rather skip celebrating w/coworkers.
The more I think about it, it does seem weird that my ex and I used to think that way…more him than me.
So do you celebrate w/coworkers? Do you celebrate w/your SO and family the same night or another night?
