You aren't being unreasonable. When all said and done it's your birthday and you can do what you like. No permission, no approval. Anyone who can't accept that can whistle.

So your birthday was a few months ago and they are looking to do something for it now?

Just go to the lunch, enjoy your moment and appreciate that people like you enough to want you to feel special. It's not the worst thing that can happen.

Why don't you talk to them, say you've heard they want a lunch for your birthday but you don't want the fuss. Then suggest you all get together for a lunch anyway (and each pays for their own) and make not about you.
Or suggest a Christmas lunch together next month?

I really don't get adults celebrating birthdays. They happen every year, we all have them and they bring you one year closer to death. Not sure why that deserves a party.

Werewolf has it.
Could you tell them that while you appreciate the thought, the reason you didn't do anything for your birthday is because you really didn't feel like it, and let's switch this around to be a Christmas lunch.
