    awesome, more reason to celebrate!

    cool! ...as long as I can still celebrate my birthday

    well they could have chosen a different date, but I'll play along. It's just one day.

    that was SO inconsiderate. they KNEW it's supposed to be MY day.

    I don't really care

    I wouldn’t care at all and I really don’t see it as inconsiderate.

    @mrsSonthebeach: “Once you aren’t a kid, I think it’s immature to consider your birthday something anyone else should schedule his or her life around.”

    Exactly!

    I wouldnt care at all. I’ve had lots of birthdays, I think I stopped getting excited about birthdays once I hit 21.

    My birthday was awful this year. Actually, I kept forgetting that it even was my birthday. Being able to do something fun like attend my loved ones wedding would be more than enough of a birthday celebration for me. Maybe they’ll even get you your own cake and sing to ya!

    In my opinion it’s not the greatest. It’s not just one day….you would be celebrating your wedding anniversary every year on his birthday. I would pick another day if it was my brothers birthday. That way I could celebrate my anniversary every year on the day, and my brother could have his day. Just my 2 cents…

    @msfahrenheit:  Exactly.

    If it was his 21st birthday, I could see that being an issue, because there are a few birthdays which are “big deals”: 16 & 21. Even then- I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve had a birthday celebration on a date *other* than my actual birthday.

    But for his 22nd? He is being an absolute brat, which is a shame- technically he’ll be an adult, but he’s certainly not acting like it.

    A little annoying but not a huge deal. I don’t really get to celebrate my bday on my actual bday since it’s a major holiday. I’d be more curious as to why my (non existant) sibling chose Christmas as tehir wedding – I don’t know if a ton of guests would show up!

    That would be awesome!  I don’t really celebrate my birthday so at least this way I’d get some cake.

    I wouldn’t care.  I’d actually get super excited.  It’s free food and drink to party on my birthday.  We could always celebrate it later.  Plus it’s only ever me and Fiance that celebrate.  Totally not a big deal.

    @rebwana:  I had a statistics exam on my 21st birthday. I’d much rather have gone to a wedding and partied it up with friends and family adn then gone out after!

    To the OP, what a baby. Has your Future Mother-In-Law told him he’s being a brat?

    Our wedding date is actually my uncle’s birthday…we picked it because it’s Penn State’s football bye week, so the 17 pairs of season tickets in the family wouldn’t be affected…i did call and ask him before we booked the venue if he cared, and he laughed and said no.  We’re going to sing happy birthday to him during the speeches and I ordered him a special chocolate cupcake (I hate chocolate so our cake is non-chocolate and he LOVES chocolate) for the occasion.  I agree with pp — I think birthdays become not so huge events once you hit adult-age (although I still try to get a birthday week out of my fiance!).
