This holiday, relatively unknown to most of the world is actually observed by more people than any other. Most people who do know the holiday mistakenly refer to it as 1/2 Christmas.
The holiday is, of course, My Birthday. And yes, I did pick the 25th of June so that I could get presents every 6 months. If I wasn’t born in the US, I might have chosen another date according to the local cultural gift-giving norms. June isn’t a bad month to be born and have a holiday from a US stand point. So long as you avoid father’s day, there isn’t really anything else in the way, or near by. The weather is usually great, or will be on the weekend before or after the big day, and all of your friends don’t have any classes or excuses not to come if you have a party.
To celebrate my birthday there is only one thing you need to do: Not talk to me. It is what I want, I enjoy having a day all to myself, and usually it isn’t too hard to pull off a day of solitude. leaving me notes and SMSs, facebook graffiti, e-mails or other things is acceptable, though not required.
Happy Birthday to me!
