Some different wishes!

Thats right, today would be my Dad's birthday, December 24th.  Because the festivities of Christmas Eve were coming right along, nobody EVER made a fuss over his birthday.  He always said he never even got a present or anything when he was a kid.

So when Christmas Eve day rolls around, my thoughts just naturally go to all the people who were born on this day, or Christmas Day, and get their celebration tossed in with the Christmas Festivities.

For all you people who are having an unheralded birthday today or tomorrow, I even went out and got a flashy cake.  Its one that would have been just right for my Dad some years ago but now he would be well past 90 and closer to 107 if he were still living.

But he is gone, and he leaves behind him all you kids who were born on his thankless day.  Now you can say its an honor to share the Birthday of our Lord and it is, but when you are a kid, that is not so easy, is it?

Happy Birthday to all you Special People, with Moms and families thinking of special things to do for your Christmas children. 

Oh, and Happy Birthday, Dad, wherever you are!

Love and hugs,



  1. Lovely.... and they are special people. So sweet remembering your dad.
    Have a terrific Christmas Eve.
    Best wishes Molly

  15. Hi Jo, I love this post!
    Yes it is hard for a child to be born around Christmas. My dad's birthday was the 16th of Decmber(1910), mine is the 20th, my friends' is the 21th, another one is born on 23th.
    But 24th is really the worst :-)
    I hope you enjoy the days with Stella and Zkhat and with a lot of good memories of your Dad!
