Well, folks. It’s officially December, which means it’s finally Christmas season. It also means that a special few of us have birthdays coming up soon, and we all know how *problematic* winter birthdays are. Do they have a birthday party and a Christmas party? Do you have to get them a birthday present and a Christmas present? What do you even do for fun when it’s raining cats and dogs outside? For some special insight, I decided to consult some of our fellow Winter babies for the pros and cons of being born in winter.

Anielka Ruiz ‘19 says that the best part of having a winter birthday is “having all of break to celebrate your birthday.” Similarly, Del Benavides (my dad) says, “the best part is that I was never in school for my birthday. But the worst part, of course, is that you get a Merry Christmas/Happy Birthday gift.” 

Angela Baltazar ‘19 adds, “People always try to combine my presents. It’s not my fault I was born so close to Christmas! I deserve two gifts too!” Anielka  relates, “My mom’s birthday is Christmas Eve. We try to make it special for her by celebrating her birthday all day and waiting until the next day to start celebrating Christmas. We also give her her birthday gift in the morning and her Christmas gift at midnight.” 

Sophomore Ryan Ohlman shared, “having my birthday five days after Christmas kind of sucks because nobody can seem to remember it.” Servite junior Vincent Mann feels the same way, saying, “People forget about my birthday every year because it’s six days before Christmas.” Joy Joukhadar ’19 states sadly, “I always want to go to the beach for my birthday but it’s always too cold.”

When asked about the pros and cons, our very own Ms. Barclay says, “There are no pros. The cons are that I’m not honored in the way I should be and that makes me feel like less of a person. I’d like to let everyone know that I will be accepting presents for previous birthdays next week.”

Poor babies. As you can see, having a winter birthday is kind of the worst. So make sure to find out if any of your friends have winter birthdays and give them some extra love! They sure need it.
