Do you have a lot of people in your circle of friends and family that have a lot of birthdays right in a roll? From June 20th to June 29th I have 4 people that have birthdays. This year, I'm just passing out birthdays cards. What about you? Any certain time of year when it seems like there are a lot of birthdays in your group? It happens again in October. From October 6th to October 12th I have another 4 birthdays. That's all within a week. Of course, their ages are all spread out. Two of them are born on the same day though.

Oh my goodness, that is a lot of birthdays and such right in a roll. When do you get a break? If your calendar is the same as our school year, it sounds like you have school starting right after that. Oh boy, buy lots of gifts, then you get to buy school supplies if you have anyone that young, as far as kids go. LOL Thank you for your response in this discussion, and have a great day!

Sounds like a good way to handle it. I bet it was a little tough with all of that going on while they were still in school though. Thanks for continuing in the discussion and have a beautiful day!

Wow, three birthdays three days straight in a roll. That's pretty cool. I bet it is nice having a friend whose birthday is the day after yours. Do you ever go out and celebrate together? I think that would be fun. Thank you for your response in this discussion and have a great day here on myLot!

Me and my friend did go out and celebrate while we were in school together but now since we live in different cities, its just a call and a card.

Well, at least you are still staying in touch. A lot of people only send email cards, but I think it is important to send one via snail mail now and again. Everyone enjoys getting a little something in the mail. Just to know that you were thinking about them. Plus, the phone call makes a big difference too. Thanks for continuing in the discussion and have a great day!

My birthday is July 8th, my sister is July 17th, and my mother's is July 31st. And my uncle's is the same day as mine, July 8th. Apparently when September rolls around, everyone jumps in the sack. lol

Ha! June is the bane of my existence when it comes to birthdays! On June 11th alone, I have FOUR, including my daughter & my brother! From June 3rd to July 24, I have 11 family birthdays! I started just giving out cards a LONG time ago! :-) There are also several in the March-April time frame. The only month that I actually have NO birthdays is in December and thank goodness for that, with Christmas and all! But I do have a little great-nephew who was born on Thanksgiving 2005, and we are all very thankful for him!

WOW, a whopping 11 birthdays in just a three week period. That is huge! I couldn't imagine that. I would definitely be just giving out cards instead gifts in such a situation. And probably one big party to celebrate them all at once. Thanks for sharing this with us here in this discussion. And, by the way, it appears you are new here to myLot, so let me send out a great big WELCOME to you!

We have birthdays from September to January 31- 2 in Sept. 2 in Oct. 3 in Nov. 1 in Dec. and 3 in January. Yes everyone just gets a card with the way the economy is now. Its just to much to be buying gifts for so many.

I cant say they are all in the same month but we do have Birthdays after Birthdays. My mom's birthday is in December, my dad January, My oldest daughter Feb, myself and my husband both in April 2 days apart, my youngest daughter is May and my stepson is in June. I am currently pregnant again and due July 9th. If this baby actually makes it to July then we'll have a July baby. It's always very very busy around here with birthdays. It's hard to keep track of everything going on half the time.

That's funny how your family's birthdays are all so consecutive, and almost 1 in every month. And now the baby is due in July. Well, I'll say congratulations to you now on the baby. I hope it all goes well for you. Maybe you will have a July 4th baby. That would be a fun day to celebrate your birthday growing up. Plus, everyone or most (at least here in the states) would have the day off work. Thanks for the response in this discussion. And good luck to you!

Wow, that's 5 birthdays in just over a week's time. Amazing how you can keep up with it all. And then you've got all of the summer bar-b-ques on top of that. We are going to our 4th pool party in a month's time this weekend. I am really looking forward to it. I love to swim. A lot of people are setting up tents and spending the night. I love summer. Thank you for your response in this discussion, and have a great day!

Wow, fernandezmindoro, that is 4 months straight of being busy with not only birthdays, but also holidays. You have Christmas, New Year's, Valentine's, St. Patrick's Day, plus a few smaller holidays combined in there along with all of those birthdays. I bet that does make for a sigh of relief when the month of April finally rolls around. LOL Thank you for your response, and have a great day here on myLot today!

It sounds as if you are pretty busy during the A months. LOL And 4 in just 10 days in August. I know exactly how that feels. I sometimes wonder why it is that all of these happen this way. My brother had told me that if you get 16 people together, that at least 2 of them will have the same birth date. We were at a little get together, and started going around the room, and sure enough the statistic was true for that small of a group of people.

yeah september seems to be the birthday month for me...generally we just have a 10 pound limit on presents so its not that bad, although when we all turned 21 that was an expensive year having big nights out, but its all worth it in the end when you have the memories

I think they say that there are more birthdays in September than any other month of the year. I can't remember exactly where I read or heard that statistic, but it had something to do with the holidays being 9 months earlier. Yes, it is definitely worth the memories to splurge on the big birthday numbers now and again. I have never had that, and I always regret it. But I try to make up for it for other folks when I can. Thank you for your response, and have a great day myLotting!

I remember working for a company and having 43 people in one department. We had grown from only about 8 or 9 people, and even split the department into two at one point. At first we had a carry in and celebrated each person's birthday. By the end, when we had so many people, we just started having a carry in once a month and making note of who's birthday that we were celebrating. Those people weren't required to bring a dish. And wow, did we have a lot of food. LOL Thank you for your response in this discussion, and have a great day!

Wow, that's 9 birthdays all in one month. I bet you will be glad when July gets here. LOL And it appears they are all related to you. It is great that you are close enough to cousins to include them into the equation as well. We have so many, that it would be impossible to keep up with them all. Especially since my grandmother on the one side had 16 kids. I only remember a couple of their birth months, but not the actual dates. Thank you for the response and have a great day here on myLot!

Sounds like a busy month for you. Add that on top of the summer and bar-b-ques and I bet it makes for a really hectic time. And if you go on vacation that would be even more to factor in. All of that can get extremely expensive, especially since most of them are your relatives. Hard to slight them with just a birthday card. Well, I hope you are enjoying the month of June while it lasts. LOL Have a great day here on myLot!
