Today is my birthday.
When you're born in December your birthday competes with Christmas. If you're birthday is in May you never have to worry if the holiday party is going to fall on your birthday.
When you're birthday is in the second week of December you always have to worry if you're going to spend your birthday taking finals.
I celebrated lots of 21st birthday is college....mine was not one of them. I had a 7:30 am final on my actual birthday and the day after my birthday.
When you're born in December they send you home from the hospital in a stocking. (oh how I wish I had a picture to show you I'll work on that) and when your Mom orders you a clown cake for your birthday party, you get a Santa Clause cake.
Sometimes people buy you joint Christmas and birthday presents. If you know a December born person PLEASE do not do this. You would never buy a joint present for someone born in July. If you absolutely must, make sure to buy them something great for their half birthday!
Your presents are wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper.
I really think people assume you're just born with a special love for Red and Green.
December birthdays are an after thought. People just don't think about them.
Chances are if you were born in December, you REALLY love your birthday (maybe even a little bit more than Christmas some days)
So you might think it sounds like I would trade my birthday, like I wish I was born in the summer or the spring or the fall or any month but December.
But, that is not true.
I'm not really a believer in astrology, but I do think there are similarities between people born around each other.
And I think people with December birthdays are the best people!
Christmas wrapping paper, combined birthday & Christmas presents, spend your birthday taking finals, not being able to have a real birthday party because there just aren't enough days in the month. I would not trade those things to be born any other time of year.
I love my December Birthday!
I mean even Jesus decided to celebrate his birth in December! :)
Have a piece of non Christmas cake for me today!
