@Nona99:  Happy almost-birthday! 

I always thought my late January birthday was bad, but then I met my fiance – who’s January 3rd – and my best friend – who’s December 24th – and I stopped feeling so sorry for myself. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

You can pretend that the whole world celebrates your birthday with champagne and noisemakers, right? “Yay, it’s Nona99’s birthday! Pop some bottles!”

I’ve known several holiday babies.  Two people I went to high school with had birthdays on Christmas Eve.  My exDH’s niece and nephew were both December babies and their mother was adament about birthday gifts in birthday wrapping paper and Christmas gifts in Christmas paper.  One friend from elementary school was born Christmas day, but often had “half-birthdays” on June 25th.  This way, there was a better chance that his friends would be in town and be able to go to his birthday party and he could actually have a pool party if he wanted one. 

ETA:  My uncle was due on NYD, but my grandfather insisted that he be induced on NYE so they could get the tax deduction for him that year.

@Nona99:  “2.  Christmas Ornaments are not a good birthday gift, unless the person in question happens to be a Christmas tree.”

OMG. bahaha!  I’ve never thought that Christmas ornaments made a good gift, but this has me dying!  I thought having a birthday the day after Valentine’s day sucked.  I take it all back!  Happy almost-birthday Nona!  Thanks for providing me with so many internet lulz.

My niece’s birthday is Dec 19th and thankfully my sister is very mindful to have a separate birthday party for her before the Christmas festivities begin. I will always make sure she has a birthday paper wrapped gift on her birthday and christmas wrapped gifts on christmas. I can imagine a New Years bday sucks!! But your post is pretty hilarious. I hope you have a good birthday this year! Happy Birthday tomorrow!!!

@Nona99:  Hahaha you’re funny.

My best friend’s bday is Dec. 18. This year I made sure to wrap her birthday and Xmas presents separately – one birthday bag and one Xmas bag!

I can imagine how annoying the combo presents would be!

That’s why I like my June birthday lol.

Happy almost birthday!

I was born on Thanksgiving (so every few years my birthday falls on Thanksgiving), my sister’s birthday is on Halloween and my FI birthday is 5 days before Christmas. So I can relate a lot.. holiday birthdays are hard. But I have ALWAYS made sure when it’s Dec 20 my FI gets birthday gifts/cards and then he gets Christmas gifts on Christmas. I’ve always kept them two seperate days.. I think when he was little he got the shaft a lot having a birthday so close to Christmas.

This is great! FI is a Christmas week baby and I am 2 weeks after. When we were first dating he got excited because I got that Christmas and birthdays are not the same. He still gets bitter about Jesus’ birthday infringing on his though ๐Ÿ˜‰

@X0JLYNN03:  I always thought it would be so cool to have a Halloween birthday.  A friend’s is Oct 30th and FBIL’s is Nov 1st.   I’m currently pregnant and due on July 9th, but I’m secretly hoping for a Fourth of July delivery.  Every couple hundred years my b’day falls on Mardi Gras Day.  It happened the first year I lived in a place that celebrated Mardi Gras and it rocked!

SIL has a birthday around now.  I get that it’s something that has stretched over from childhood, but I tease her about it a bit.  DH and I make sure to get her a birthday gift as well as a Christmas gift (spending the same amount if it was just for Christmas though).  She will jokingly complain if the birthday one is in a Christmas gift bag.  I try not to do this but when we’re travelling sometimes it’s just the size that I have that fits the gift.  I pointed out that the most we get for our birthdays from her is a phone call, so we do more to celebrate hers!

@Nona99:  happy early birthday! And seriously, I think it’s time you started your own blog. First post must be when your SO left you alone for an afternoon, or what I deem ‘The Guacamole Incedent’. Please and thank you.

@Sugaree:  Halloween would be a kickass birthday, absolutely!

Hey lady – I feel for ya!!  My ex’s b-day was 2 days after Christmas and he always got the shaft.  Double presents or people just forgetting seem to be the common place.

My b-day is on a much more fun holiday…Cinco De Mayo!  Margaritas + chips/salsa + fun music + far less annoying drunks = awesome bday!!!

Happy almost birthday! I am born in early January and always thought it sucked… Until I met my FI, who is a Christmas baby. I will never whine again!

With that said, I love combo gifts. It gives me an excuse to ask for really nice/expensive things that would be out of the question otherwise ๐Ÿ˜›
