Hello mylotters, do you still celebrate the birthday of your dead loved ones? Our family will be celebrating the birthday of our dear grandmother who passed away 9 months ago. It won't be a big celebration just like last year during her 100years. This time in remembrance of our grandmother's birthday, it will be the gathering of the family, with prayers and have our meals together.

That is the sweetest thing I have heard in a long time. I do not know of anyone else who celebrates in that manner... but I think it's wise; a great way to keep a memory alive and to continue to honor them. Post again after the party to let us know how it went.

Hello cmjune, we just had the celebration yesterday. After we went to church offered prayers to our dear grandma. We had a small celebration not us big as her last years birthday. We still do had a cake usual meals mostly her favorites, in commemoration of her. We talked about the good memories we had with her, the good deeds she'd done, even some of us started to cry remembering her again. How much we do missed her. First time celebrated the birthday without her presence in us anymore. Some of our relatives who were not able to attend, they also celebrated at their home as well, remembering our great grandmother. Thank you so much and happy mylotting.
