I never call anyone on their birthdays…except my immediate family…but I always send birthday cards to my besties and FB messages to everyone else…

It’s a sign of the times, I guess!

I usually text and/or facebook message. Though with some of my close friends we still get together for birthdays. One of my Bffs and I are only one day apart so we usually always do something to celebrate our birthdays. There are also some people I still send cards to as well! They always seem to appreciate it so much.

@doubtingdebbieah:  I don’t and neither does DH. We will call parents and that’s about it.

He has one friend that does though, and we always make it a point to call her becuase her birthday is Christmas Day, and she always gets jipped out of a birthday, lol. So I always remind DH that it is her b-day, and to call her since she always remembers everyone else’s birthday.

I usually just send a text because I am working ridiculous hours and don’t have much time to talk on the phone.

@Artificial-Sweetener:  WOW!

I dont get calls I get texts or FB messages from most of my friends. My cousin who was also my MOH calls me and sings happy bday to me. She always tries to be the first one to call me. I do the same for her as well. Our bdays are 4 days apart and though we are about 2 1/2 hrs away, we try to spend some timee together for our bdays. She’s my bestie!

@doubtingdebbieah:  I call family members on their birthdays, Facebook posts for close friends/other friends, and text messages for really close friends.

I call my parents and my sister. I assume most people have plans on their birthday so I don’t want to interrupt them with a phone call. I send cards to a lot of friends, and I text and/or facebook message most friends on their birthdays.

I never did.  I figure they are busy with plans and phone calls from family.  It’s difficult enough finding a time for my parents when the phone isn’t busy.
