In your family, do you remember everyone's birthday? Do you always work with others, and give that birhday person a surprise on that day? Shamefully to say, I am not that person. I always forget my parents and my sister's birthday. In return, they always remember my birthday.

Yes we are only five in the family so it is very easy to remember all of our birthdays. I and my siblings and my mother's birthday are all summer. We are not used to surprise each other birthday but my mothers always prepare food for our birthdays.

yes. in my family, birthdays are considered some of the most important dates. we could ignore some holidays but not birthdays. we also like to surprise the celebrant with parties and presents. i like the "surprise" thing because i like to see their faces with mixed emotions. i also like to make them cry with joy :)

Yes, i do remember everyone's birthday, not just my parent's and siblings but my cousins and aunties bdays as well. I try to wish them, give presents, sometimes invite them at my place and celebrate their bday here. By the way it was my aunt's bday today and I went to her house with a cake and bouquet ;)

I am very attached to my family. I never fail to greet them in thier special days, not a single one. Maybe I'm not a material gift giver, but it always the heart that counts.

Well I can easily remember my siblings birthday, maybe because I only have two. but it's almost impossible for me to remember my parents birthday especially my mom, I might be able to say the month it falls on but not the day. I should probably make some sort of reminder because I feel bad when I forget.

I always remember everyone's birthday. But only because I have a reminder! I have 2 calendars hanging in my kitchen. One is a regular calendar. The other is a birthday calendar. The only place I have seen birthday calendars is in Germany. The ones that I have seen are all narrow and vertical. They have the month and all of the dates listed - but no days of the week! You write down birthdays and anniversarys. You can use it every year because it doesnt have the days of the week. Super simple and easy to use! At least your family doesnt get bitter because they know you just forgot. It is nice that they still celebrate your birthday!
