I never thought that I will be putting up this post because I have somehow been averse to declaring own birthday on the blog. I feel too embarrassed in doing so, it is like asking for wishes not that I do not call up friends and say you didn’t wish me but that happens with people who really know me. On the blog you just know the side that I show you so we don’t really know each other ‘THAT’ well, yes I am being honest. So what made me write this post?
Well sharing my Birthday with Jesus Christ is something which is very special and I thought it is a topic worth writing so here I am.
Birthdays are special to everyone but I have always felt that I am extra special because the whole world celebrates my birthday and realised the beauty of it from the day I could understand things. Waking up, switching the TV on, seeing the special festive atmosphere gives you the feeling that the whole world is celebrating with you. The sounds of Christmas Carols and the Xmas songs make me feel that they are being sung for me ;-)
As I started going to school I had a major grouch. Every single classmate of mine would celebrate their birthday in school, wear their special dress and distribute chocolates and I never got to do that because Christmas used to be a holiday. As my Mom recalls I used to tell her “please change my Birthday”.
Now the tables have turned, every next person is having a holiday and here I am sitting in office wishing it was a holiday. And the worst part is the behaviour of my closet friend, she knows me for bloody 8 years and she also knows that I work on every Christmas yet she doesn’t forget to ask me every time, “Ah! You working on Christmas? I am not!!!” Life main jab aise dost hain to who needs an enemy? Even Hubby is cooling heels at home, ironies of life!!!
But as I was saying, having a Birthday on such an iconic day means that not only do I feel special but I also get wished by so many people because as people say it isn’t easy to forget my this day. On one hand I feel blessed with so many wishes and on other hand I feel guilty because I am not able to wish even half the people who wish me. Wish I could change that aspect of my life.
The down side of having a birthday today is that sometimes people feel I am fooling around and they don’t believe that I am a Christmas baby. Then there are people who come to wish me, say Merry Christmas and go away! Sigh! I remember when I was in college a senior of mine had would come and wish Merry Christmas and go away. She finally wished me a just a minute before the date changed.
As far as plans for today are concerned, have baked a chocolate cake, icing is pending and once that is done will surely put up a photo. Will be cutting a cake in office as well.. Friends are dropping in evening and we are planning to go out for dinner to join the festivities of Christmas J
On that Wish you guys a Merry Christmas
P.S. - The icing on the cake of my Birthday? I share my sun sign with Salman Khan and his Birthday falls just a day after mine, i.e. on 27th, karmic or heartwala connection? ;-)
