Were You Born On A Holiday? You’re Not Alone!
I know several people who were born on or near Christmas, and, as joyous an occasion it is, some of my friends get really upset when I give them their present and say “Merry Birthday!”.
(Yes, I am that guy that loves to kill two birds with one stone. Cheap? Yes. Tacky? Yes.)
Anyway, if you MUST share your birthday with a holiday, you are not alone: you even have your own ‘support group’ website via Experience Project.
You can log on to this website to read the stories of others who were lucky/unlucky enough to be born on a holiday, and you can share your story there, as well. My personal favorite? “I was born on Mother’s Day: what an awesome present to her!”. Well played, birthday boy. Well played.
