Special Birthdays

When I was a child my parents would make a big deal of my birthday. For each of our birthdays both my mother and father would take a day off work and spend a whole day with the family. Even if it were a school day, they would let us all be excused from school and we would spend a whole day doing things together. I think this is the best bonding idea and it really made me feel special on my birthday. I wish to continue the family tradition.

What do you do as a family on birthdays?

at the moment bugger all because they are too young.

when the eldest turns 3 in February we may do something special (although I will have to cook him a egg & dairy free cake to take to playschool!)

i think that family and friends should come together to celebrate the person who's birthday it is.....it isnt just about getting older, it is about rejoycing and celebrating their life so far.....i love birthdays :]

got H's on the 1st, and dh's on the 20th of november.....PARTY PARTY!!! :party:

I feel sad on birthdays to be honest, and so does DH. We dont celebrate ours because we both feel like it is another year older and another year passed :bawl:

My birthday always fell at the end of the school six week holidays and so I never had parties, never got to see my friends on my birthday and always got stuck at home with my Mum and Dad and boring oldies. humph

My daughter's birthday has fallen on a schoolday for the past few years and she absolutely LOVES it!!! :smile: She wears all her badges and generally spends the whole day getting special treatment from her friends and teachers. At the weekend she has her official party... double whammy :D

I'm not sure I would ever keep her off school just for a birthday. For a start she'd miss a day of learning and it 'could' be something important or interesting... and school finishes at 3.30pm so plenty of time to have a family meal and see the relatives. Not sure keeping a child off school is a 'best bonding idea'.... plenty of other ways and days to bond.

I remember being so excited on my way to school every birthday! Particulary as my birthday is Hallow'een and I had a fancy dress party every year, to which the entire class was alwasy invited, so all anyone talked about pretty much for the whole week was my party - brilliant! :D

i guess you are right. Since i was never at school, I really missed out on the special treatment. Although, i got the special treatment from friends when I went to school as I got older. Wow..after I read all of your feedback now I really think i missed out! :bawl:
