Yes, we do, but then we live in Germany, and things are different here.

Are you joking? Once you hit the big 3-0, not only do you not celebrate half-birthdays, you only count the birthdays that fall on odd-numbered years.

Kidding. Sort of.

Half birthdays? Thats pretty dumb. What, another excuse to have people notice you and give you stuff. It is hard enough for people to remeber your normal birthday, why give them another excuse to fail?

Yeah, Christine, that's pretty dumb. That's like asking somebody to remeber how to spell. If you can't remeber how to spell, how will you remeber how to demean people behind an anonymous comment? You expect too much. People will remeber that you are giving them another excuse to fail.

My baby cousin (who is no longer a baby, but 13 this year) celebrates half birthdays. Most likely, that is because he was born on Christmas and if he didn't celebrate the halves, he would get gipped on his birthday presents. People are all the time giving him stuff and saying, "Oh, this is for Xmas and your birthday."

Happy half-birthday!

My half-birthday is December 30th, which is right in the middle of the holidays, so it gets lost in the shuffle. However, it does mean that my birthday falls right in the middle of the year; as a kid, the next big gift was never farther than six months away!

Hey girl, just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas!

We missed you at our Christmas gathering, but we know you probably had other things going on.

Are you sticking around here for Christmas, visiting friends and family, or staying in L'ville?

We will keep you posted on a possible New Years gathering!

Ah. . . Christine, no I don't celebrate half bdays. Do you? Seriously, or is it just like a, "Hey, today's my half bday!"

Well, I just stopped by to wish you a happy, merry Christmas! I am celebrating Xmas in the U.S. this year, but my twin sister is in Prague right now! I am soooo jealous!!!

when i was living at home, i would wake up in the morning ... walk downstairs to the kitchen ... as i passed the office, my dad would poke his head out and say, "Happy Half-Birthday, princess." and that was pretty much it. But then there were times when he'd go down to the market and bring back a bouquet of flowers.
