Our son’s birthday is in January and we always have a hard time getting him gifts or dividing finances for him to still have a great gift and/or party for his Birthday. What is even harder is a Birthday right smak-dab in Christmas. I have been bumping into so many families that have at least one child who lands on this blessed month. Yesterday I encountered a mom with TWO kids in Christmas and I asked for some of her secrets!
She told me some people decide to do Un-Birthday Parties in earlier months or even in the summer months. Some choose to not celebrate Christmas until a certain day in the month after the Party. We do something similar to this and by Jan. 1st all Christmas decorations have to be put away because Jan. 4th is time for my boys Birthday. Those who have children on Christmas, they celebrate Jesus’ Birthday and theres together. This helps to recognize the special moment for their child too.
Some do half-Birthday Parties. So at 4 and 6 months of age for example, they will do the Party instead of their natural Birthday Party.
Honestly, I would love to share a Birthday around the greatest celebration of birth there is and don’t mind Him having the Glory of that day. But, for a child, this time is harder to arrange for and celebrate.
So on behalf of all those children,
Happy Birthday to all the Christmas baby’s!
…and of course to the most precious gift of birth there is to marvel in…the birth of our Saviour and Lord.
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” KJV
