Well, there you go I have my birthday literally on Christmas. Now you’re for sure thinking how is it to have your Birthday on the same day as Christmas? Well, to be honest nothings different for me at least – because I never knew anything else.
However the way I celebrate it might be a little different from your usual birthday. Just to get this out of the way my birthday is on the 24th of December. For us in Switzerland this is the day/night we usually celebrate Christmas with all the gift giving and Christmas dinner etc. I know that for my UK friends and some other countries it’s the 25th but for us it’s all about the 24th.
So let’s jump right into it! Now my birthday starts with a lovely brunch. It’s usually my family, my boyfriend, my grandparents and sometimes my godmother and a friend or two. Ah, I love my birthday brunch. We always have some delicious food and of course cake! I always enjoy this part as I have all my loved ones around me, there’s lots of laughter and we generally just have a great time.
After brunch, it’s time to unwrap those presents. Yes, I do get presents twice! In the morning I get my Birthday gifts and in the evening the Christmas one’s. What I like in particular is that I can wish for really big things that I wouldn’t normally get for my Birthday alone – but since I have my Birthday at Christmas – I can wish for one big present. This way I got my laptop for example or my kitchen aid. So who’s gonna say now having your Birthday on Christmas is bad?!
But the present situation aside. I really do like having my Birthday on Christmas. Yes, I never knew how it would be if I had my birthday on any other day. It’s just lovely to know that your fave people will have some spare time, because there’s no work and I have a full day of festivities. In the morning it’s my time of the day – until 4 p.m. – then it’s officially Christmas in our house. I do have to say my parents did really well with how they choose to celebrate my day with me. I think it was this way since like forever.
So the next time if anybody asks me how it is to have your Birthday on Christmas I’ll just direct them to this post. Or I just tell them it’s the best thing ever! Basically, aside from celebrating twice in a day it’s like any other birthday. Just with some more presents and festivities from morning to evening.
So when is your birthday? Is it on a special day too? Or how do you celebrate yours?
