Growing up, my birthday always landed sometime during or right around Channukah…meaning that it often got forgotten, and that I only got to ask for items I liked once a year. My ever creative parents decided to spread out the love and goodies, and so, my family began to celebrate my half birthday, June 9th, instead. I still had my party in December, so it didn’t confuse my friends, but we’d have a nice family dinner in the summer on June 9th, and get my presents then.
Even though I haven’t lived with my family in years and years, we still celebrate my half birthday now, as does my partner, while my friends celebrate the actual date of my birth in December.
So today, happy birthday to me! I’m actually presenting both a conference workshop and a strap on 101 class, so I’m a busy lady, which is just how I like it!
