Celebrating a Child’s Holiday Birthday
As an adult, I can look back on my December birthday and smile. I love this time of year, and love sharing my birthday with the holiday cheer. I have friends born in late November through mid January who feel differently though. It seems that the happiest time of year can overshadow a birthday close to (or on) a holiday. As a parent with a son turning four on Thanksgiving, I’m trying to find the balance! We’ve never done a big party for him; he’s the third born – so that explains that. But he’s old enough to know he has friends now! We'll invite a few over to have cake and play, but we won't go overboard. However, a holiday birthday needs something special, so we've always made sure to do just that!
