Does any one in your family have a holiday birthday, how do you celebrate them?

We have a few holiday birthdays in my family, my sister's birthday is March 17, St. Patrick's Day...we almost always had a green birthday cake for her, my daughter's birthday is on February 14, Valentine's Day...she has always liked that her birthday was Valentine's Day, it always makes her feel extra special and more loved. I have never been real big on giving extra gifts, I try to make sure my children know that they are loved every day (they know I do that too, that way they have never felt like I forgot or just didn't do anything for them for Valentine's day). When she wanted it, we decorated with red (which happens to be her favorite color)and hearts, that decision was always hers. This year with my mom being in the hospital on Valentine's Day, I got a Valentine cookie cake and we had a litte celebration so that Mom could be a part of it. My step daughter's birthday is December 24, Christmas eve...when my husband and I got married I started throwing her a birthday party (she had her first non family party on her 9th and I gave it to her).Every year since, she has had that choice, usually, especially since she's older now, 18, we have our Christmas celebration on Christmas eve, but we always have the birthday part start at 2:00, then the Christmas starts after that, we always try to keep the two seperate. How do you celebrate holiday birthdays in your family?

Sorry I don't have anyone in my family that has a holiday birthday but I have a good friend that has only two kids and both were born on Christmas day, 3 years apart. that's pretty cool, but I am sure it wasn't that cool at gift time. My younger brother's birthday was the 21st of Dec. and that always left him with less presents than me.

My mom's birthday is Valentine's Day. That's good for me, because then I never have to worry about having "someone special" to celebrate that day with. My mom is that someone special. We usually go to Applebees for lunch or dinner.
