BIRTHDAY’S

BIRTHDAY’S

WHAT IS IT ABOUT BIRTHDAYS THAT MAKES US FEEL SO MANY DIFFERENT EMOTIONS?  DEPENDING ON THE AGE THAT WE ARE TURNING, WE FEEL DIFFERENTLY.  I KNOW WHEN I TURNED THIRTY,  IT WAS LIKE DAWN HAD AWAKENED.  NOVEMBER 1ST WAS MY BIRTHDAY, AND THIS WON’T BE POSTED UNTIL THE FOURTH OF NOVEMBER.  I WANT TO LET ALL OF YOU KNOW THOUGH, BELATED BIRTHDAY WISHES ARE ALSO APPRECIATED!!  LET US TAKE A LOOK AT THE MEANING OF A BIRTHDAY IN OUR WEBSTER DICTIONARY OUT OF CURIOSITY, ALTHOUGH WE KNOW WHAT BIRTHDAYS ARE.

WEBSTER DICTIONARY MEANING OF BIRTHDAY-1.  THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE DAY ON WHICH A PERSON WAS BORN, TYPICALLY TREATED AS AN OCCASION FOR CELEBRATION AND THE GIVING OF GIFTS.

DAILY WISDOM WORD MEANING OF BIRTHDAY-A SPECIAL DAY, ESPECIALLY MINE, LOL THAT PEOPLE SHOULD ACKNOWLEDGE VERBALLY, OR WITH SOME KIND OF GIFT OR CELEBRATION.

BIRTHDAYS ONLY HAPPEN ONCE A YEAR, VERY MUCH LIKE OUR HOLIDAYS.  I KNOW CERTAIN RELIGIONS DON’T BELIEVE IN CELEBRATING BIRTHDAYS, DUE TO AN INTERPRETATION OF OUR BIBLE.  I DON’T JUDGE THEM AND AM A CHRISTIAN MYSELF.  I DO FEEL HOWEVER, THAT A DAY, EVEN IF IT IS NOT EXACTLY CORRECT, SHOULD BE MARKED TO CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST.  I DON’T GO TO CHURCH WEEKLY, BUT WHEN I DO, I ALWAYS FEEL EMOTIONAL.  TAKE EMOTIONS AND MULTIPLY THEM BY TEN, AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THE DEPTH OF MY FEELINGS ON CHRISTMAS EVE.  

BIRTHDAYS, ESPECIALLY CHRISTS BIRTHDAY, NEED TO BE CELEBRATED.  LIFE IS TOO SHORT NOT TO ENJOY SOME OF THAT HOLIDAY SPIRIT THAT EVERYONE WHO IS CELEBRATING SEEM TO CATCH WIND OF.  IT IS ALSO FAIR TO MENTION, THAT THE HOLIDAYS ARE A BIT OVERDONE WITH COMMERCIALS AND PRESENTS, BUT SO WONDERFUL WHEN YOU SEE A CHILD’S FACE SHINE WHEN IT IS CHRISTMAS EVE AND THERE IS A HUGE SMILE ON THEIR FACE AND THEY SHINE WITH HAPPINESS.   

I GUESS MY FEELINGS ARE SO STRONG ABOUT HOLIDAYS IN GENERAL, BECAUSE OF THE HAPPINESS AND TRADITIONS THEY HAVE BROUGHT  INTO OUR FAMILY.  IT IS ALSO THE TIME OF YEAR WHEN YOU GET TO SEE LOVED ONES WHO LIVE OUT OF STATE.  PEOPLE TRAVEL FAR AND WIDE FOR BIRTHDAYS AS WELL.  I KNOW FOR MY 50TH BIRTHDAY, I HAVE TO OUT OF STATE FAMILY MEMBERS FLY IN TO CELEBRATE IT.  

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT HOLIDAYS IS GENERAL?  IS YOUR BIRTHDAY A SPECIAL TIME FOR YOU, OR SOMETHING YOU DREAD BECAUSE YOU ARE A YEAR OLDER?  AFTER READING THIS, SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE, WHERE IT SAYS, “JOIN THE DISCUSSION” AND SHARE A COMMENT, QUOTE OR POEM ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS FOR HOLIDAYS.  

ONE LAST THING:  HAPPY THANKSGIVING, MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY EASTER, AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU REGARDLESS IF YOU DO OR DON’T LOOK FORWARD TO THESE OCCASIONS!
