Do you throw a Christmas birthday party?

The part that bothered me the most, was when some family members combined Christmas and birthday together (my birthday is the end of January). Now, I make sure that any friends/family members that have a birthday around the Holiday's, I make it a point to get either a card or a little gift just for their birthday and something else for Christmas.


My birthday is 5 days after Christmas (new year's eve... eve haha), and my little sister is two days before me. I'm almost 30 and to this day I have never had my own cake or party. If we both wanted a "big" present (my size Barbie was a BFD in the 90s haha) we had to SHARE IT. So annoying.

So of course, what do I do? Marry a guy who also has a December birthday, because WHY NOT. hahaha I will admit, having a "holiday time birthday" has really turned me into a huge Grinch. :( So my advice? Celebrate the heck out of your kid's birthday, make it feel separate and special otherwise you'll have a Grinch of your very own. AND NEVER WRAP THEIR B-DAY GIFT IN CHRISTMAS WRAP!!!! I cannot stress that enough.
