Make sure the birthday is treated like a birthday!
That means giving the themes and colors of Christmas
a rest for the day. At least for the wrapping paper, cake,
So, no angels, gingerbread men, pinecones, or snowmen.
And no red and green, either.
I have always felt for my friends and family with December birthdays.
There is always so much going on that they can feel lost in the shuffle.
But, treating the birthday like a birthday instead of just another part of the holidays,
seems to please them tremendously!
December-born Readers, do you agree with my December birthday rule?
