I think that having your birthday around Valentine’s Day or Christmas should be against the law!
I followed a tweet in, awesome, especially the rural (sheep) bits.
They tend to surprise people.
True, but it sure beats having to remember the birthdays of your mom, aunt, wife, two nieces, and son all in the same MONTH!!! Talk some effort trying to recall who’s birthday is on WHAT day!!!
My daughter’s is right after Xmas, mine’s mid-January. My parents always tried to make sure I didn’t get shorted on presents; we’ve always tried to do the same for her. OTOH we tended to schedule her party for the summer, if only because it let us hold pool parties. 🙂 (I use past tense because she’s all growed up now.)
Yeah, I think a pool party is much more fun than a “freeze-you-butt-off-snow-party” 😀
I followed a link from Questionable Content – I should have gone to bed nearly an hour ago but got stuck into the archives.
Loving the comic – have bookmarked for revisiting 🙂
Having your birthday on Christmas day definitely changes things. I find it really hard to get excited about birthdays – it’s all a bit meh when your birthday is a post turkey-lunch-coma after-thought.
My mother is half Polish so as a kid I had my birthday party in August to coincide with my names day. This was pretty fail too – the other kids went on holiday and the ones who did show up didn’t believe that my birthday was Christmas day.
After 28 years I’ve realised I actually really like my unusual birthday and wouldn’t change it 🙂
Sorry for the ramble & I look forward to reading more from you soon 😀
Name days are a big thing here in Finland too. Being american and not having a name day, I’ve never been into them and luckily my wife isn’t either. Otherwise it would be one party after another all year long. 😯
Well if having your birthday around Valentine’s Day is against the law, arrest my parents. They decided to get a little frisky around the end of April/beginning of May, and I was two weeks late on Feb 11th. My boyfriend and your dad feel your pain. And my grandfather feels your pain too-my nana’s birthday is December 20th! 😀
I’ve informed the authorities and they’re on their way.
Maybe the “Hippie” was just afraid of SAXTON HALE(CEO of Mann.Co) who is hiding behing his house and because of that, he made the thing to look as great as he possibly could. You might’ve failed on that present because Saxton wasn’t near to give you some MANNlyness. 😀
HAHAHA!! My Hubby’s Birthday is Dec. 23 and my Birthday is Feb. 14th. It costs a bunch to have so many partys and presents, but we always keep them seperate <3
