Having a birthday on or near Christmas Day, anyone got any experience of that?

Asked by ucme (50034points) November 16th, 2019

My younger brother has a birthday 2 days before the big event & my wife’s dad (rip) was on Christmas Day itself.

My sister’s is a few days before Christmas and that is why she gets Santa hat combo gifts.

Never combine them IN ANY WAY! Like birthday/Christmas cards. That’s too easy. And lazy. Keep them separate and keep the birthday special. (My mom’s birthday was just before Christmas and I base my comments here on her gripes on the subject.)

My nephew’s is Dec 27. When he was in grade school, his birthday was always celebrated in February.

My younger brother has a birthday on Dec 23rd, when he was a kid he’d get another day to celebrate rather than clash with Christmas & so, my mum, in all her wisdom, chose this unofficial birthday to be the same as the Queen, mid June if memory serves.
Me & my elder brother were left gobsmacked by this & would mock him mercilessly with comments like ” what did his majesty get for his special day?”

My younger sis’s b-day is Dec 26th. She has always gotten the short end of the stick for birthday presents.

I have a cousin and a nephew who were born on Christmas day.

My birthday is on Dec. 18th, we’ve still just has a small celebration when I was younger, now at 33 I am not so worried. Though for people that have it the day of or on Eve, or a couple days to and from. I can see it a little more difficult.

I suggest at least a get together with maybe a cake if you can’t do much else, due to the season.

Mine is December 10th. Never had anything combined with Christmas, I don’t think?

Actually, last year, (my 18th) I had cake at my house and then cake at my Grandma’s on Christmas but that’s the only time.
