Celebrating my birthday under quarantine

Today is my birthday and we celebrated it at home as everyone is not allowed to go out and eat out. I remembered last year we were able to go out still despite the rainy day and work was suspended too so we were able to go out as a family. Bit now is different since we could not go out anyway because of the quarantine being implemented and most restaurants are closed for dine in.

Belated birthday greetings. My birthday was celebrated at home (outdoors) but I still felt the love and joy from family and friends.

You have a lovely place to spend with your family. My place is a small condo unit with no outdoor so we spent it only indoors.

@rsa101 Thank you! If we were in Florida, I would have had to celebrate alone in my condo for the same reasons as you. I hope you still enjoyed your birthday despite the setting.

@DianneN I've just realized that the past years we have had simple celebration with family only. The only difference is that we never celebrated it outside anymore and stayed indoors only.

Not that much just a simple celebration with family only no fancy eating out to the restaurant anymore. On the other hand it is cheaper and more intimate with family.

@rsa101 Yes, it is very hard during the corona to celebrate birthdays if you are used to going out having a nice party.

@Hannihar Actually i’m not that grand in celebrating my birthday but we usually eat out as family. But now we are confined in the house and made a simple and silent one.

Happy Pandemic Birthday! No matter the situation we have now, we have to be grateful and happy for our birthday. So, what feast did you prepare for the family to share?

@rsa101 On my birthday, I fried bangus a la pobre and ate alone. Didn't even bother with the atchara because I wanted to savor the bangus a la pobre taste. In prayer, I offered the simple feast for the hungry and the cold, the homeless and the dying. When my daughter came a few days after, I woke up to Black Forest cake and a bilao of sotanghon pancit. Gosh, I wish I could have shared the feast with others. No matter the food on the table, still a feast from our Lord.

Happy Beerday! Yes, we cannot hold celebration outside but that is not the important, let's just be thankful that we're not infected.

That is true no need for fancy celebrations anymore but have a meaningful one for your love ones is enough.
