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.
