Remembering Birthdays, Anniversaries and other Important days
September 1, 2017 1:37am CST
Some people have a gift for remembering Birthdays, Anniversaries and such other important days pertaining to their close family, extended family, friends etc etc..I feel it is good to wish people because we all like being remembered by people who matter to us. In my own case , while I remember a few occasions with regard to my children, siblings,parents and a couple of close friends I tend to forget others . I have felt very embarrassed and bad on a couple of occasions . In the recent past Facebook has helped since most of my family and friends are on it and I get a reminder , that is if they have given the option to do so..other than that how do you all manage to remember ?

In general, I remember zodiac signs of people. Like Anna (Lady Duck) is pisces, Pony is Virgo, JJ is Capricornian as is Maluse and Dawny, DE is virgo, DJ is cancer, Coral is Leo, mommaj Taurus, Valerie - Cancer, and Hatley Scorpio...I zero in on dates too at times...sometimes I get them wrong...but I used to remember almost 30 odd...at a stretch..nowadays memory is failing me. Other days, anniversaries etc., no...I don't remember them. :(

That's brilliant , it is utilising your mental faculties to the maximum. I feel it is something you are born with and develop over time . My brother is the same , he never forget a face or a name , even if he has met them just once. He surprises me all the time .

I do remember all important dates easily. Maybe gifted in this way. But to make sure I won't forget I set reminders on my phone. Phones these days have this feature to help you remember important dates. Like you, I also remember important dates for my immediate family.
I am a person who is very particular on remembering birthday and anniversaries of the people in my life. I mean, once any one told me about any special day then I save the same in my brain. However, recently I am not that much perfect. Even I know the date, I can remember the day before, but I may forget the same in morning and remember in later time in the day.

@Sreekala that is really great , if you can remember it without being told by someone else. I am now making a note of all the Birthdays and other occasions so that I don't forget , the problem is I sometimes am so caught up with work , I forget to check my diary
