Happy Birthday Day, or Why I Don’t Celebrate Thanksgiving

“My birthday is on Xmas, so everyone tried to get out of it with one gift,” my coworker lamented. “It’s hard to have a birthday around a holiday.”

“I’m a Thanksgiving baby,” I commiserated, “so I get it.”

“Ah! You know what it’s like to have your birthday ignored too,” he exclaimed.

“Noooooooooo,” I said looking at him with sorrow. “We celebrate my birthday in place of the other national holiday.”

Happy birthday to all the Thanksgiving babies out there!

Happy unbirthday to those you who weren’t born on Thanksgiving!
