So it was dhs birthday on Saturday. His father died 2 months ago so he is expecially fragile as we both no longer have parents. Normally my siblings send birthday cards but thisvyear nothing.
aibu to be sad about this or maybe they are following the no celebration due to bereavement line. I know of course I could ask them but
mn jury wha do you think?

I would presume they are being sensitive to his feelings if they usually send him a card. If he is especially fragile as you say, they may have thought happy birthday wishes would be a bit insensitive imho. Sorry for your/your dh's loss flowers

text your siblings, they can pop a card in the post and blame royal mail.

Really? Do people really not send birthday cards to people that are grieving? It would never occur to me not to. Surely they need more fuss and positive things to lift them?

Are your siblings brothers? Because brothers are rubbish. Mine don't remember my DH, DD or DS birthdays. I remember their kids and wife and girlfriend's birthday. (Ive got two brothers not one with a wife and gf!)
