Do you have anything special that you do on your birthday? Do you have a party? Go out for dinner? Get lots of presents? Make sure someone makes you a birthday thread? Or maybe you just don't care and carry on as normal?

As for me, it depends. If I were with my parents, they'd take me out for dinner. Since I'm not, I'm at my sister's place, and we're going to have a small party. It'll be fun!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAMMI!

I usually go out with friends on my birthday then meet up with family the day after :3 I usually end up making my own birthday cake too 'cos no one else in my family can cook xD As for birthday threads, I've only had one here so far but I'll be forcing Olli to make them all whether he likes it or not n.n

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAMMI

I don't do anything special on my birthday. No parties or anything, haha. I'm too lazy for that I guess. I would like to have a surprise party once in my life though.

On birthdays, I choose a restaurant to eat out at and my family goes out to eat in that place on the Sunday before/after the birthday, depending on what day of the week my birthday falls on.

    I don't usually do anything special for my birthday. Go out to a restaurant with the family for one day then hang out with my best mate on another. That's the usual deal.

    Um right...

    I don't do anything special for my birthday unless I feel different. Maybe I'll celebrate it very belatedly by getting a driver's license or something but as for a real celebration it's just another day for me.

    I'd rather do absolutely nothing on my birthday rather than do something. I mean, it's my day. Though I get the usual phone calls, and parents taking me out to dinner. I'm not much of a party person so that's why lmao.

    BY THE WAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY ETC <3

      I haven't had a birthday party since I was like 7, and I've not done anything special for my birthday in years. It's just a day. I guess it's good enough that I made it another year without dying, right?

        I usually don't do much, as in nothing. This year, though, since we moved to a big house, I'm inviting my friends over to par-tay. Should be fun. =D

        Happy birthday Sammi! Enjoy the party!

        Typically in my home its the same things - family or friends come to visit, large Mexican meal (either Pozole, Menudo, or Birria), cake or pie next, finally presents. Birthday person says final thanks and from there everyone is off to their rooms. My grandma and another family member will help to clean up the mess.

        Its great to have fun with family and friends for an hour or two.

        This year, I'm not going to expect much on my birthday, I got it early, months early. My birthday is in December but they gave me my present in early August. It was tickets to a football game at CenturyLink Field (Seattle Sounders FC vs Chivas USA) game was on September 8th. I"m going to have to wait until Christmas for gifts.

        Just for fun/laughs/superstitious person - next year my birthday will fall on a Friday the 13th, plus the year will end in 13 too. 13 has always been my lucky number

        I don't do alot on my birthday. My dad usually takes me out to dinner and/or buys/makes me a cake and we eat at home. I haven't had a birthday party in years.

        I never really had birthday parties growing up (aside from small family gatherings), but I was never much of a party person so I didn't mind. I never really got more than a few presents growing up, either, with my birthday being so close to Christmas- which was another reason why I didn't have any parties. The only thing that I usually got to do on my birthday is pick what we were having for dinner, whether it be home-made or a restaurant, and maybe have a small cake.

        My birthday is coming up in more than two weeks now but I don't usually do much on my birthday.

        I did eat out at a Chinese restaurant once but that was years ago.

        Most of my birthdays are stay-at-home with the obligatory cake but in recent years not-so-much presents.

          I've never really done anything for my birthday either. The only times I've ever had real parties were my 6th, 10th, 12th and 18th. All the other years I've gone out for dinner with my family, or with my friends or with both (at separate times though, I don't mix friends and family when it can be avoided).

          I always enjoy my birthdays though, and the parties I have had were really fun. On the whole though, I don't really like a lot of attention being on me (which is why I was mortified when the restaurant I went to last year took it upon themselves to blast the Happy Birthday song from the speakers over the entire restaurant and thereby crossed themselves off the list of viable birthday restaurants from now until the end of time) so I don't really like parties. I also hate when people call me for my birthday and ask me what I got and I have to go through the entire list... I find it really uncomfortable. Thankfully, we talk so so little of my extended family anymore that that isn't really too much of an issue.

          All I want to do on my birthday is go out for a nice dinner. Maybe tie it to something that's happening downtown at the same time, if possible.

          I've had birthday parties in the past, but I haven't really had one since Senior Year (which was more like my friends staying over at my house for a whole week. Yeah idk how that happened) and I'm not sure if I would want to classify that as an actual party. Usually though it's just a birthday dinner and maaybe getting a present or two. I'm not sure if it was even that last birthday.

            What I prefer to do is have the place to myself for the day while I play something random on the old 360 or Wii until I pass out due to the headache I would end up getting after 14 hours or so of gaming.

            It depends not only on who I'm with but what day it is. My birthday is four weeks after school starts (this year it was exactly three weeks, but most years it's four) so I'm usually busy with either my Robotics class, athletics or marching band. This year, my birthday fell on a Monday so most of my day was eaten up by the aforementioned Robotics class. ;;

            Though, I do almost always spend a nice, quiet evening with my family (shutting out technology and friends [sometimes!] completely), usually watching a movie of my choice (or going out to see a movie, orz) and enjoying a fine dinner. That's actually what I like doing most, rather than having a boisterous afternoon/evening with friends. Family is the most valuable thing to me, after all.

            I go to the mall and eat out at a nice restaurant. Last year was without the mall (only with the dinner) but this year, I'm planning a 3 day/2 night getaway for my birthday that will include a mall trip, a hotel stay, and about 5 meals out plus two hotel continental breakfasts.

            Halloween parties used to be a part of my birthday celebration since mine happens three days before, but since leaving college, they've been hard to come by.

            But I've eaten out for my birthday for over ten consecutive years now.

            I haven't celebrated my birthday since I turned 15. Maybe things will be different this coming birthday when I turn 21, but I doubt it.
