me on the other hand, I love my birthday. growing up, I always felt special on my day (thanks mom and dad!) and so I like to do that same thing for my family. small birthday parties, maybe a few presents, special dinner, and decorations. nothing extravagant, but enough for that particular day to stand out from the rest. your birthday is a celebration of what God has created - YOU!!
if hubby ignored my birthday, I would definitely be upset and disappointed. my MIL told me earlier last week, by not receiving the blessing someone is trying to give you, you steal their blessing too. him not allowing me to celebrate him yesterday, I was also upset and disappointed.
what to do with a year-round Scrooge? he is really not a fan of any holiday because he believes it is just corporate america making the rich richer ... to some extent I agree. he also believes that all tradition is bad ... this I do not fully agree with. still, no birthdays?
got any suggestions for me?
