Well, tomorrow is my birthday and I don't think we are doing anything. Tonight my mom made pizza and a cake and we celebrated a joint birthday with a friend of the family who's birthday was today and mine which is tomorrow. I think that's probably all that we plan on doing. Do you guys do anything special to celebrate or just pretend it's another day?

My birthday was on Friday June 8th. I spent the day with my son and both sides of the family at different points during the day. I didn't really do anything special, but still I enjoyed the day.

Happy Belated Birthday to you!!! I would sing the whole song but that might take me awhile plus while I was first typing this message the power went out and so I'm taking that as a sign someone doesn't want to hear me sing, lol. I'm glad you spent time with your son and family on your birthday as for most of us on here they and our pets are what we truly love to be surrounded by.

It is not really a big affair for me. Normally for my birthdays, I will get together with some good friends and then we will go for a nice dinner. We do that for everyone in the group so the birthday boy gets to eat free. ;-)

That's an awesome idea. That way no one feels slighted and everyone gets the chance to be in the spotlight.

if you want special, give a suprise to your mother, because that is a hard day for her.

Hey, that is interesting. I never thought about giving her a present on my birthday considering I wouldn't be here for her. Thanks for the idea!!

That's a good idea then. My family used to have fried chicken and a pasta for our birthdays. Or maybe lumpia, and go to church and give thanks to God for adding another year in our lives. No parties at all...very crises.

That is a very good idea that you have about going to church and giving thanks for still being alive. I love just having the family together now that I'm getting older but when I was younger I always wanted a big party and I have no idea why. Thanks for the response.

Happy Birthday To You!! I love my birthday, I always celebrate it every year. Can't make a year without celebrating. I celebrate my birthday by inviting all my family members and special friends. I celebrate my birthday at home. I ordered spaghetti, cake, chicken, and many more.

Thanks! I like celebrating my birthday even though it means I'm getting older but that's just a fact of life. I wish I had thought about asking my mom to make some fried chicken because I think she makes the best but I'm biased. It's fun to celebrate with family and friends.
