Ok, I know that I am not the only one with a birthday near Christmas. Statistically speaking, every person that you know has a 1:33.2 chance of being born 5 days before, after, or on Christmas Day. So, to those who fall into this category.. What was the best thing and the worst thing about your birthdays? Good? We'd often get snow. Mom would have a lot of cookies around the house. The bad... The "Rather than get you 2 small presents, we decided to get you one big present instead" excuse. When we were kids we knew that it was a cop out. And the absolute kicker? A birthday present wrapped in Christmas paper!
