Lol...seriously. I haven't been doing them since I was born. And I don't think it's that bad, honestly.

The day you have the excuse to do whatever you want, but avoid everyone who wants to sing "happy birthday" for no reason.

Absolutely nothing. :heart: I count my years beginning and ending with 12:00 on New Years (No presents - no celebration. It's just a statistic, after all.). My birthday's actually become a bit of a pest, since I haven't been able to get my family to stop. xD

I don't really see a point to celebrating birthdays since you really didn't contribute to being born.

I used to not like it and try to ignore it but my family wouldn't let me. I really brought me bad memories because when I was younger and my family was more united it meant I got to spend a good time with my cousins and have fun with the huge group of people my family was. Then shit happened, they got divided and I stopped seeing them and stopped having birthdays at all so every year I just missed the old times and felt lonely

Now I just think it's "Me-day" and I do whatever I feel like. Get me a lot of chocolate and buy me whatever I want with the money I get even if it's very expensive and go whenever I want to go that I like on my own since I'll be alone anyway.

Just another day. Mine is inbetween Christmas and New year which overlooks it so I just don't really care about my birthday(s), well apart from not liking getting older.

i don't know what to think, they where happy when i was little, now is like a compromise with others to celebrate, is the way to be nearest of the dead

the death has passed near my family, so the birthdays would never be the same

"Other" because it's kind of a mix for me: A happy day, but I typically take the day off work and just enjoy a quiet day at home by myself. :)

It's a day I just...don't really think or care about.
Nothing ever happens other than my mother giving me some random present, and maybe a card from my grand parents.
Thus, my birthday means to me: nothing.

It's an average day if I can make sure I don't remind people it's my birthday. I don't like it being known or announced. Otherwise, amongst friends, I try to make the scheduling for that day as chaotic and random as possible so that there is no chance on earth that a surprise party is going to happen and if it does, it's going to be without me. Though....I am fairly random in my locations throughout the normal days that, there's really no telling where I could end up.

I chose 'A happy day to enjoy...', which is depressing. It's my birthday today (as of 20 mins ago), I have just arrived in a foreign country alone, I've had to leave all my girlfriend, family and friends behind, and the town is way too busy to have a quiet drink anywhere. My birthday this year SUCKS.

A mixture of a day to party it up for the fact that you are still alive and a day to remember that you are getting older. A mixture of good and bitter-sweetness.
