Let Me Ask You a Question – 7/30/18


Let me ask you a question:

Do you make a big deal of your birthday?  Why or why not?

  1. Not at all. I enjoy the attention, especially from my family, but I don’t get the point of celebrating the fact that I managed to live through a whole year 😛 If anything, my Mom should be celebrated on that day, for working so hard to give birth to me 🙂

  2. As I have gotten older I don’t. It falls in early Jan right after the holidays. Usually by then I’m tired and just ready for things to get back to normal. A good celebration for me is good sleep and a good meal! How about you?


  3. Not really. In our marriage, the birthday person gets treated to dinner and dessert of their choice and that’s about it. 🙂 Now when our son was growing up he got all the bells and whistle and he still (he’s 22) gets as much hoopla as he will allow. 🙂 ❤

  4. I sure do! I like to make a fuss about other people’s birthdays, so of course I like to make a big fuss about mine! I’m fortunate enough to have friends and family who are always eager to get into a festive mood, so I take advantage of it. Life is short, so let’s get celebrating! 😀


  5. I like it super low-key on my bday… my oldest daughter’s bday is two days before mine, so I make a big deal out of hers and then want to just relax on mine! That’s the best gift 🙂 Now that she’s older, we often celebrate together, and that’s fun too. My bday falls on 9/11, so it’s a bittersweet/solemn day. But every year older is a blessing and worth a celebration!


  6. I’ll joke around about it with my wife and son, saying things like I’m the birthday boy and stuff. Other than that I don’t, my birthday comes and goes at work without anyone ever knowing it happened, and that’s how I like it.


  7. Not exactly a BIG deal but I always celebrate my birthday. I always have. And now as a survivor of cancer and an autoimmune disease I celebrate just being alive and still being here.


  8. Obviously I make a big deal of my birthday. This day only comes once in a year and the only day I can get people to do whatever I want. Duh!!
