Brandi's birthday is in July and we brought her home from the hospital on the 4th. I tell her that the entire nation celebrates her birthday- a parade, carnivals, fireworks. But she is older and wise to me now too.
I have a friend who's birthday is Dec. 24. She says that it was no fun when she was younger as the presents and cake etc. always got rushed through in order to get ready for Santa. She says that sometimes they even got combined. She never really fell for the combined celebration either.
But if your birthday falls on New Year's Eve, does that mean that the entire world celebrates your birthday? You know, parties, streamers, noise makers, fireworks, a countdown and crystal ball in Time's Square - the whole shebang? Or is it the countdown to the end of your birthday?
Whichever it is, do you get to have it all to yourself, no sharing with others. Is it easier to get friends together for a party? Especially if you want to stay up and celebrate the actual time that you came into the world- sometime around 11:30ish?
Or are you just afraid that your big sister will tell everyone in blogland how old you are? Well, I won't. I will just say--
Happy Birthday, Sharon!!! I am so glad you are my sister. Hugs and kisses all around. Hope it was a good one!
