We’ve all heard why December birthdays have it rough – and they do – but have you heard about the perks that only come for holiday birthdays?
If YOU have a birthday in December, cheer up! Here is what other holiday babies say puts the “happy” back into their birthdays.
1. “Christmas Sales” –M. M.
This was by far the most popular perk confessed by those interviewed!
December birthdays can cash in on every holiday sale from Black Friday (the only “day” of the week which actually runs an entire month-long) clean through to New Year’s Eve.
Virtually anything you could ever want is on sale – which means your birthday cash goes a lot further.
2. Free Food While I Shop
Everyone wants your business on your birthday, and they say so with all those coupons, discounts and freebies.
And at Christmastime, while the rest of us have to buy a quick snack to get through our shopping trips, December babies just cash in on their free birthday dinners, desserts, and other goodies.
3. Party In The Daylight
If you have a birthday over Christmas break, you don’t have to wait until evening. You can party whenever you like – in the morning, at night, or all day long!
And for anyone with kids, here’s more good news: the babysitters are out of school too!
4. More Stuff From My Wish List
If your family and friends actually shop from your wish list, you can get more of what you really want.
5. A Break From The Kids
December birthdays can sit back a little while their honey takes the kids for two rounds of shopping – one for Christmas gifts and another for birthday gifts.
6. Extra Cash For Christmas
I’d have never guessed this was a perk, but while their family’s budget is tighter, their own budget actually gets a little boost. It’s nice to have a little extra money around the holidays.
7. The Magical Mood
…I have to admit, you can’t beat the magic of Christmas.
8. I’m Actually NOT Forgotten
Say what?? No, it really is true… for some.
December birthdays are quirky like that. You either get completely lost, or you get remembered more than you would at other times of the year.
