You guessed it! I have a Christmas birthday. Born December 25th.
What I've learned through the years is that it's not that unusual. I've met quite a few people that share that day with me. My guess is most of us are pretty indifferent about it. It's really all we've ever known. Yet for some reason, the world is fascinated by it.
In spite of my indifference, there are certain things that I've come to loathe about it.
4 Things I Hate About My Christmas Birthday
This is why I celebrate my "Birthday Month". As soon as December 1st hits, my husband gets used to me throwing the "Birthday Month" card around. Where are we going to dinner? I either get to pick the place I want (because it's my birthday month). Or I get to make someone else pick (because it's my birthday month). This pretty much applies to anything that happens around here. I try to opt in or out as I choose. Sometimes it works well.
So the next time you meet someone with a birthday on Christmas, remember this list! You don't have to point it out, and please don't ask if it sucked. Because it didn't until I had to start having this conversation.
Do you have a Christmas birthday? December birthday? What do people ask you?
