I love my birthday and its not cause anything great ever happens either, i look at my birthday like most people look at new years. I was just given another day, another day of my life, that is something to celebrate. I love making other peoples birthday special too. I dont really understand why people dont like their birthdays. For it in not important about the present its the gift of life that god gives us.

I don't much think about my birthday one way or another most of the time.

I generally do unless somebody reminds me. My birthday wasn't celebrated as a child so i just don't think about it.

I too love my birthday and I celebrate it by going out with my kids every year. Sometimes it may be just a family outing. Or sometimes we spend the day in an orphanage with other kids.

I don't celebrate my birthday really. I just go out to eat but thats about it. I don't see why I should celebrate an event that happened years ago. The only birthday that should be celebrated was the first 1 which no one can remember.

It's just another day for me. I don't consider it scary, special, or anything exciting and don't really celebrate it. Friends and family members get me gifts and call to wish me a happy birthday, but that's about it. My guy and I give each other birthday presents, dinners, and trips all year round. I try to celebrate every day, and my birthday doesn't make any day less valuable.

hahaha. you are afraid to give them party. i guess next time if they reminds you of your birthday and wants some party. ask them if they will pay for the expenses.

I do care about it. It shows that I have made it throught another year of life and I have another year ahead of me. I dont care to have a party or anything but its ok if I do.

birthday present is ok but when no extra budget that will be acceptable. the most important is you have healthy life and god given you another year again.

My birthday is an important milestone for me. Its a day for me to reflect on the last one year. Its also a day for me to see what is important for the next and how do i go about getting there. Its extra special when I have friends around to share it with me.

hi, patzel, birthday is not so important to me as others think. i do not care so much about it. on each birthday, i just think that my mom suffered a lot when giving birth to me years ago. and i will definitely make a call to mom or stay with her if i can. and at the same time i am one more year old, that's all.

Me as well I treasure my day. It will never be just an ordinary day because it's another great blessing from God for additional year of life. It's not about gifts,foods,party etc., but happiness inside which cares about. We have a choice to celebrate it grand or simple, or in just a little prayer in thanking Him for your day. Have blessed day ahead...

I don't give my birthday a huge importance. I don't mind if no one celebrates it with me. What i do is simply talk to my Creator and thank him for giving me this wonderful life. It may not be a perfect one cuz after all nobody has one but i thank Him for giving me a nice family, sincere friends and life itself. What i always look forward are the birtdays of my parents and daughter. I make sure that i give them surprises, surprises that will make them happy. I also keep track of my friends' birthdays. I can see the sparkle in their eyes when they don't expect their birthdays to be remembered but then you do. For me, remembering other people's birthdays is a way of telling them that you care for them.

yes you are right, giving them surprises is the greatest gift they received. i dont have also huge parties in my birthday and sometimes i dont celebrates it but i care about the birthdays of my families. they are most important to me and makes me happy when they are happy too. have a nice day.

It's not any of my freaking concern. I wish I could get rid of it. Mine is coming up at that end of this month and I'm already stressing out. I'll be 22 and that's 8 years away from 30. And I haven't done anything with my life. It's such a waste, birthdays. They are only reminders of what you haven't done in life.

If you ever threw to loneliness, if you trumbled down with nobody's help or other broken heart things, your birthday just is a day of your may days, and careness or uncareness just is a attitude for your life.

I still celebrate my birthday :D. I like to celebrate my birthday hehe. Be it from going for a vacation to just a simple, nice dinner with priceless companion(s). most of the time I will take leave on my birthday. Birthday’s come once a year and now is the time to enjoy pleasures that are short and sweet and there is no finer way to spend your birthday than celebrating it with your loved ones.
