December Birthdays, Whine and Comment
If you're like me and have a birthday in December (mine is 12/31) then you know that we are shortchanged in the birthday present department. I don't remember ever getting a present that wasn't wrapped in Christmas gift wrap (if wrapped at all). Usually I got a "combined" birthday and Christmas present. My sister's birthday is only 2 weeks after mine (in January) but she NEVER got combined presents, or presents wrapped in Santa paper! Why do families think that being born in December automatically excludes you from a real birthday present. And let's not even talk about birthday parties! You might think that since mine is on New Years Eve, that I would be a partying fool. No, everyone goes to celebrate New Years, not my birthday! Okay, I'm done whining. Feel free to comment and whine all you want if you're an ignored December birthday person!
