I used to always call my friends on their birthdays, and recieve calls from them as well! Especially in college. Over the years I recieve less and less calls. Friends that i consider still close will call me but some of them text or facebook message. I am happy with either way (though obviously i love a personal phone call) i was just curious if people still call or if technology/texts/instragram is how people reach out now. I guess i’mold school i love a good phone call. 🙂

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 Darling Husband. 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 Darling Husband 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.

I dont get calls I get texts or FB messages from most of my friends. My cousin who was also my Maid/Matron of Honor 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.
