    Default How many of you don't celebrate you birthdays?

    I don't celebrate my birthdays since I was 9.

    If you do, why do like your birthdays?
    If you don't like your birthdays why don't you like your birthdays?

    This should totally be merged with my birthday thread!

    Having been forced to not celebrate my birthdays or Christmas or any friggin thing else as a kid due to having Jehovah's Witnesses in the woodpile, for me celebrating them now is like a statement and celebration of my having broken free from all that shite. As well as just, y'know, fun.

    I don't celebrate 'me' birthdays. I don't like the implicit idea that other people should give a fuck about the anniversary of my birth when I don't. Maybe when I hit 30 (I'll go with your mother 'cos she's dirty).

    I don't. Why should you celebrate your birthday?

    Don't give them any ideas!

    I try to celebrate as many days as possible. And my birthday is a built-in attention getter.

    What's to celebrate? I'll celebrate when I'm dead.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    I'm forced to celebrate mine. I hate how everyone makes a big deal over birthdays, even though everyone has them and they require no effort to acheive them. They tend to overshine actual events that are deserving of recognition. For example, one of my friends' birthdays was recognized and celebrated, as usual, but she barely got any recognition when she graduated, even though thirteen years of work went into her education. It's like saying, "The school thing is meaningless, but congrats for surviving for yet another year!"

    On second thought, considering the amount of crap that could potentially kill us each day, perhaps we're being rewarded for pure luck.

    I love birthdays, my own and others. I don't necessarily think of it as "celebrating the anniversary of my birth", because as some have pointed out, that's kind of dumb. But I think it has a larger role as a day to simply appreciate the presence of someone in your life. Normal holidays are great, but a birthday is a time to make someone close to you feel appreciated specifically.
