Christmas birthday babies

For me, growing up and having a party every year was special and important. Every year my mom bought me a cake and had friends over and the day was great because it was my special day.

What happens when you have a child whose birthday falls on Christmas Eve or
I am lucky enough to know 2 Christmas Eve babies. My mom and Casey's daughter Elizabeth.

My mom taught me a lot about the pitfalls of a Christmas birthday. Everyone forgets, combined Christmas/birthday gifts,most places are closed, friends and family out of town or don't have time..

She made me understand more than ever why it's important to really make a christmas birthday stand out.

Elizabeth turns 3 this year on Christmas Eve and I don't want her to go through what my mother did with not feeling special, my mom says she has memories back to age 3 and remembering how her siblings all had presents on their birthday and age got a combined gift or a combined party.

Unless you know someone who has a Christmas birthday I don't think you understand.

So please, if you know someone who shares a birthday with Christmas, please try to make it as memorable as possible.
