Christmas Day Birthday Help

So my birthday is on Christmas Day.

I’ve never had a party obviously or seen any friends on my actual day, which I totally understand. I’ve occasionally done something the week before but even then it’s too close to Christmas for most people.

I think my poor DP is a bit stumped as to what to do this year as he wants to make it a bit special.

Any ideas? Anyone else got a December birthday and managed to work something out?

I also rarely get a birthday card, I get Christmas cards doubled as birthday cards which I’ve now started to find quite funny grin

My Auntie’s birthday was on Christmas Day. We always made a big fuss of her and insisted she opened her birthday presents first, not just all lumped in with Christmas presents. Separate birthday wrapping paper, cards and a birthday cake.

One of my niece's on born on Christmas Eve and she always hated her birthday. Before she started secondary school she 'moved' her birthday to July so she could have a summer party and we've celebrated it like that for about 6 years now grin

My best friend at school has her birthday on Christmas day. Her family used to celebrate her birthday first thing in the morning. Then they would go to church and have Christmas presents after that.

I still make sure her birthday card and Christmas cards are sent separately and not stuffed into the same envelope, even though she now lives in the US.

My great granny's birthday was the 26th so she declared an 'official' birthday in July and had a tea party with friends, fish and chips at the beach, visits from family, cards, presents etc. then grin
