my DECEMBER birthday

Today is December 1st which means it's 16 days until my birthday.  Some people may think having a birthday one week (technically 8 days) before Christmas would suck, but I love it.  I've ALWAYS loved having a December birthday, and here are my top 5 reasons why.

5.  It's during the school year

I don't know about you, but on some level I think having a summer birthday and never being able to go to school on your big day (when, oddly, YOU have to bring treats) seems like it would kind of suck.

4.  It's hoodie season

I'll be honest, I don't put make-up on everyday.  I'm not completely vain that I can't stomach the idea of people seeing me looking "less than" in public.  I just don't care.  I probably should, but I just don't.  This all stems from my constant need to be comfortable.  I'll admit, I will put fashion over comfort sometimes, but 9 times out of 10, if I'm not comfortable I change.  Hoodies are the epitome of comfort as far as I'm concerned.  No, they sure aren't flattering but they sure are cozy!

3.  Deals, deals, deals!

Black Friday.  Cyber Monday.  Hello, everywhere you turn there is a sale in December which my gift cards and/or cash presents go a lot further!

2.  There is SO much going on!

December is a busy time of year.  In fact, I have four things I absolutely HAVE to go to on December 10th.  I'm not hte kind of person that needs to be doing something at all times.  I definitely have "home-body-ness" in me, but the fact that I have options rules!

1.  Everyone is happy!

Sure, the holidays tend to bring out the worst in us, but that usually goes away when once we've exited Wal-Mart, or the mall or aren't driving.  I've always loved my birthday in December because people are generally really excited and happy.  

So, there you have it.  The reasons why December birthdays are so fab.
Do you like when your birthday is??


  1. Love this. I have a lot of friends who are super, super bitter about holiday birthdays. Doesn't make me really want to give someone presents who make angry, passive aggressive comments all the time.

  2. I loved this post, Em! I'll admit, I'm one of those that thinks having a December birthday would suck, but you've changed my mind.

  3. I never really thought of the fun aspect of it - your birthday would seem pretty festive! Mine is right near Halloween, and that always seemed less nice because people were busy with things. But not festive things!

  4. Heck yeah! I like when my birthday is! It ushers in the END of the school year! (May 25th) Bring on summer!

  5. ehh, you still haven't convinced me of loving a December birthday...but I'll think about it. :)


Leave a thought.
